Ta-Da!


Memorial Day proved quite memorable, as you can see! After 16 hours of labor (more if you count what was lovingly endured at home), our beautiful daughter Kayla Marie was born into the world at 10:45 pm, weighing in at 6 lbs, 11 ounces and 19 1/4 inches long. She started out looking like a little slimy raisin, but with the help of the wonderful hospital staff was quickly transformed to the bright-eyed, cutest little girl in the world that you see before you! Her hobbies include sleeping and furrowing her little brow and then sleeping some more, with an occasional yawn in between. She loves to be held and prefers sprint-crying to marathoning, which is okay with Mom & Dad, but we'll see if she picks up the latter in the days to come. Tiff endured like a champ, and I was beside myself when she was born (I'm convinced that becoming a Dad is the quickest paradigm-shift that can physically be endured). Enough of my rambling, here's some pics!

Strapping her in...

I am secretly envious that you have a little one. I LOVE the newborn stage... She is so beautiful! My heart goes out to you this week... what an adventure. I hope you're both doing well. I'm glad your mama is there! I wish we could visit. And I had to laugh about the swaddled lamb. Opal is turning 9 months old next Saturday and she still loves being swaddled... I wonder if Kayla will be the same. We love you!
