"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

just a 'quiche'...

do you remember when quiche, the egg/cheese dish, was often mispronounced quickie?  One of my favourite Designing Women episodes included that bit of conversation and I remember it to this day!  Still makes me smile.

Well, I'm here tonight for a quickie (update).

Yesterday, Wednesday, my beautiful baby girl gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, hungry, perfect-in-every-way son, named Henry.  He took his sweet time getting here and finally, finally arrived after c-section.  He is not large by any means but unfortunately I don't feel comfortable with over sharing until my daughter is ready.  He has a wonderful name, after both great-grandfathers, and I know my dad would be so proud of his L-girl.   We were all gathered at the bedside last night for some photos and I will post when/if I get the o.k.

For now, all is well, and we are Blessed beyond words with this new little addition to our ever growing family.  Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes, with just a few bumps along the way those were all obviously heard and answered.  Sleep well all.
