Welcome to the World

Most of you already know, but I'm announcing it in this space for the first time: she's here, and she's perfect. She looks so much like her big brother.

Sometime in the coming days, I will chronicle the birth story -- a birth that was more beautiful and perfect than I could have planned or expected.

We're exhausted, overwhelmed, and so deeply in love. And like anyone with a teeny tiny new one in the family, we're working hard at getting adjusted to life together.

Welcome to the world, little one.
