Introducing…

 

What is her name

 

Name: above

Born December 30, 2012 at 3:08am

7 pounds 6 ounces

20 inches long

Blue eyes

Blond hair (we think)

Born feet first

Amazing mother (Julie)

We love this little girl so much. So far she has been an absolute angel. I don’t pride myself in taking photos of people (not something I am used to doing), but I got some good advice from Saydi and we gave it a shot. Here she is at one week:

Zara is quite the little girl. We have only known her for 11 days, but the bond you feel as a parent is just so cool. They say that babies come with their personalities intact – and I think that is the case with Zara. She seems to be very sweet, very laid back, very strong willed (judging by the fact that she wouldn’t flip inside Julie and came out feet first), and very aware of her surroundings.

Julie and I are working on our Cliff Notes version of the birth story and will be posting it on here soon for those that are interested. To put it briefly, it was a miracle. There were angels in there assisting the midwife and the doctor as Zara came in to the world feet first and ready to start her life!

these are priceless elijah! i can't wait to meet that little girl. Please tell me that you are both tearing your hair out, that Julie can't walk and that you desperately need someone to fly down there with a responsible 8 year old cousin for the weekend to help you all manage. No more of this, we're doing fine and amazing stuff.

Just kidding, kind of. Glad you're all doing so well. I can't wait to meet her, and meet you and Julie as parents.
