Welcoming Our Daughter

As you may already know, George and I welcomed our daughter into this world on Wednesday night. 

Madeleine Ngaire
27 June 2012 at 10:30pm
7 lbs. 4.2 oz. 19.5 inches

Our first family photo. This was about thirty minutes after birth.

I'll write more later about the motivation for her name. For now, here's some help on pronunciation: Madeleine Ngaire.

We think she's just beautiful...

"I know that heartbeat..."

Daddy's long toes

Proud (Maybe Slightly Tired) Daddy and Daughter

Ready to go home!

Arriving home about 22 hours after Madeleine's birth...

First time on her sheepskin from New Zealand

And, after a baby photo comparison, I think you'll agree with me that she most closely resembles her proud Daddy.




Our family of three is doing well as we make our way through this new learning experience. We're all feeling a bit new, awkward, and sleepy. Please be patient with us as we celebrate our newest family member, adjust to our new demands, and attempt to make the most of technology without letting it exhaust us further.
