New snowflakes

Nearly 26 years ago, my mother carefully made her way up the stairs and into Utah Valley hospital to have her very first baby. It was the first snow of the season.

On Tuesday, Paddy and I carefully made our way down the stairs of the hospital to take our very first baby home. It was the first snow of this year, too.



Our little bug joined our family on Sunday, October 25, 2009 at 7:38 a.m. She fills our arms at 8 pounds and 20.5 inches long.

She is perfect and healthy. Oh, and absolutely beautiful.

We are happy.
