Mirabella weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz. and was 20 3/4 inches. We’re going home from the hospital sometime Friday. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments, thoughts and prayers. We can’t wait until we are home!

    Wow! Look at all that hair! She’s absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to meet the “knitter in training” in person at one of our knit get-togethers. Get lots of rest, Julie… You’re going to need it.

    Congratulations! She’s gorgeous. We know you will have a wonderful time with Maribella. Such a beautiful name! From what you describe it sounds like she may have a temperament similar to what Pat had at birth and still has. Enjoy!

    Just had to say that I got to show Scott, Wesley and Matthew the pictures of your precious new baby and you should have heard all the oohs and ahhs and “she’s so cute” from these guys! :-) We cannot contain our joy for you both! Hope all went smoothly on the ride home….remember to sleep when she sleeps! (Best advice i ever got..had to share it!)

    Loads of love,

    The Strahlman gang!

    Julie, you look so happy with your darling baby girl; Tarun, the picture of Mirabella Marie holding on to your finger predicts a special Father Daughter bond.

    As always,

    I have a complaint to register. Not enough photos! You have a beautiful daughter and I can hardly wait to see her in person. Much love. B

  13. Today we have seen the all pictures. She is wonderful, beautiful and adorable. Durga is very excited to see her pictures. The day Mirabella came to this world, Durga got up 3:00 a.m west coast time and started praying. She did not sleep that night. The time baby was born we were in flight heading back to Baltimore. Durga could not wait to hear the news. As soon as we got off the plane she grabbed my cell and called Tarun. We are very happy and excited to see Mirabella. She has fullfilled Durga’s wishes. Lots of love to all three of you.

    Julie and Tarun: Mirabella is gorgeous! And, Jules: you look beautiful, too! I wish I was close enough to give you a big hug!

    Reading the notes from your family and friends is such a wonderful experience.

    Adding to the enormous love everyone sends to you, Mirabella and Tarun,

  15. Mom and Dad says:

    We are so grateful for the safe delivery of this beautiful little baby girl. She is truly a blessing.
    Love you Julie, Tarun and Mirabella.
