My due date was today. . .



. . . but I decided to come a week early (11-11 at 11pm)! My mom was so excited she lost 7 pounds 13 ounces. We're all doing well and Soren loves me dearly. He calls me "Baby Sweet Cakes" and gives me kisses galore. Dad's so happy to have a little girl but I think he's more tired than my mom!

I was born at home and welcomed into my new surroundings by my mom, my dad, my Grandma DD, my aunt Bridget and some wonderful midwives. The midwives gave me to my mom right away and she was so happy she cried. There were times when my mom thought she couldn't go on but I was determined and finally entered this world beautiful and healthy. My first cry was welcomed by all in the room--my first song in this life.

Lots of love,


Dahlia

I love her! What a beautiful baby biscuit (we call cute things biscuits at our house :0) ) Dahlia is a delightful name- its perfect. There's something noble about a mommy who just gave birth- I am not good at explaining these kinds of things but I have a feeling of deep awe for you right now.

She is a gorgeous little bundle. Congratulations! (Ryan also sends a rather congenial head nod in Jason's direction.)
