Introducing Cecilia “Celia” Marie…
Our sweet baby girl arrived on March 11 at 8:59a.m. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces and measured 18.5 inches long.
I’m a big dates person and her birth honestly couldn’t have fallen on a more appropriate day. March 11 has always been a special day in mine and Tom’s relationship—we were set up as a blind date for my sophomore class dance in high school, which was on March 11, 2000. Exactly six years later (totally coincidental) Tom proposed to me while I was home from college for the weekend. So when my OB said my due date was March 12, I knew that our daughter would arrive on the 11th. Tom says I willed her out of me, but I think she knows how much this date means to me/us 😉
We are settling into life as a family of three (well, four, if you count the fur-baby Molly) and slowly figuring out this parenting thing! Things will be a bit quiet around here over the next month or so as I soak in the newborn snuggles and work on my new role as mommy.
