This morning at 9:51 AM J. delivered Mirabella Marie. Mom and baby are doing great. We are tired. Bella is the only one sleeping right now. She has a very even temperament. She only cried for about 20 seconds when she received her first vaccines. Otherwise she’s been chill’n. She was awake for several hours after the birth and went to sleep after her second feeding.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. We’ll post a picture soon. I didn’t bring the cable to connect the camera to the computer. You can also check the St. E’s nursery online, but there were a lot of babies born today, and they’re a little too busy to be posting pictures right now.

    Gavin said, “You mean Tarun had a baby in his tummy”…he loves babies! I’m thinking 6 years old is too young for the “birds & the bees” story!

    Congratulations to all of you! Uncle Roger and I were at the American Indian Museum in DC having lunch, when Mom called to tell us that Mirabella Marie had arrived. We were so excited that we shared the news with the folks at the table next to us. After all, it’s not every day that we become a Great Uncle and a Great Aunt!

    Thank you, for posting all the beautiful photos of your precious daughter. We’ve looked at them about a zillion times. Love, Cioci
