Going to be fast (sorry!)

So the day was a success -- we have her in our hands, she's beautiful and perfect and sweet and we could go on and on with great things to say about her.






With that said, we left at 6ish, and just got back (i think its about 9 p.m., but it feels like 4 a.m.) we are super tired, so the heavy stock of photos will have to wait until tomorrow. For now, here are a few:




First time holding her -
















Mark & Tallia and Lieu - our baby's caretaker - and baby. still nameless. soon.


Tomorrow, more photos and stories. Now, bedtime.

Love,

Mark & Tal

Hi Mark and Talia,

My first time on a blog and I couldn't be happier that it's you and being able to see your new addition. She is beautiful! Sorry we missed your shower, we will see you and Gentle Water when you get home. Our prayers are with you. Love, John and Linda

p.s . Best part of the first picture is the people in the background of Tallia saying:
" Didnt we give big one away 30 year ago?"
