MiniMooo Makes Her Move

Dear Friends and Family -

Just before 7AM this morning, our new baby girl joined us, after a several increasingly intense hours at home and less than half an hour after making it to the hospital. She's 7lb 14.4oz and 20 inches, and healthy, and Christi is tired but recovering. Me? I had the easy part.

Missing something? Nah - who needs a name . . . we're matching our ideas to this actual little one, and letting the likely choices settle in. Got to keep you string along somehow, don't I?

Ten minutes old and nicely swaddled!

In this moment of rest (believe it or not she's napping), we want to say an immense thanks for everyone's support so far (and, in advance). Having everyone's help has made this feel almost sane. Almost ;-).

OMG first comment! Welcome, adorable little baby!!!! The Andersons are very excited to hear the news of your arrival, and we can't wait to meet you. Soren thinks you should be named "Bee" (his way of saying 'baby').

Yay!!!!!! Congratulations!

Yay! Yay! Yay! There's another little soul in the world! Congratulations to all of you.

We called our little guy "Baby Boy" for about a week, but we eventually moved off it when someone pointed out that as far as names go, that one doesn't scale very well. Good luck in finding the right one for this little one.

Can't wait to see more pix...

Congratulations! What a cutie! If you're looking for a name, I'm partial to "Baby Girl Andersen-Smith."

Oh my goodness gracious, but she's an adorable lil' bundle. Big congratulations to you both--so, so, so much. I can't wait to meet her! Hoorah! P.S. The hat *is* darn cute.

Congratulations! Welcome to the world, MiniMoo!

We're so, so happy for you all! Claire can't wait to meet her newest friend.

Chris said...

Wow, congratulations! She is ever so cute. Clearly an angel, who will eat well, sleep solidly and read before she's three.

Kirsten and I spent a few minutes trying to figure out whether she looked more like Adam or Christi.

I really look forward to meeting her, and to learning her name. Please keep us posted with everything!
