she's here.

Baby Ida arrived February 6, early in the morning—and is so lovely and wonderful.

She pushed her 42 weeks in the womb, but chose to come a day before our scheduled induction. [ Praises! ] The little lady surprised us with her 9lb 5oz body, but came so beautifully and quietly at the Birth Center. Our experience was everything we hoped for, and within a few short hours, they let us go home to spend the day in bed as a new little family. Perfect.

In short: thanks to friends and family for food, visits, original art and flowers—and our midwife for baking bread. We're excited to continue sharing her sweet face with you all. ❤
