Zilla's a girl!

Moments after birth

After her first bath--our little frog

Meet Soleil Faith
Born January 7
3:42 pm
5 pounds 14 ounces
20 inches long

We're now home and doing fine. She's such a sweet little girl. I know it's only been a little over 24 hours, but she's quiet and loving and so cuddly. And tiny. Just a little bigger than Lily was when she was born.

I'm glad to be home. I've missed Gabriel and Lily, and they missed me. Lily was so cute when I got home. I honestly think she heard my voice because she whined until I picked her up and started playing with her. Then she was so happy and she kept showing me how much of a big girl she is. Gosh, she feels different, so chunky.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers throughout this pregnancy.
