On February 24th, at 12:30 am, I gave birth to a wonderful, beautiful, healthy baby girl. She came about 3 weeks early, catching us a little bit off guard, but Lefteris is a veteran dad now and he got the house, and Perry, in order while I labored at home for a few hours. We had a wonderful experience at the hospital, and truly couldn’t have imagined a better labor and birth overall. Now we’re home with our daughter and her big brother, settling into our new normal family life and loving it.
She’s an amazing baby – so good-natured and a champion eater. Most astounding, though, is her smile…she smiles often, especially right after eating and while she’s falling asleep. She was only five days old when I took these photos.
