    Hope the labor wasn’t too laborious or painful, nova. ( Good! Got THAT out of the way now!) Now it’s back to reality– a WHOLE NEW REALITY, in fact… later — don’t forget to take notes, pictuires — whatever — first smile first word etc etc so you won’t forget a thing. in the meantime relax — a job well done take breather — now you have someone to keep you up at night and make you smile in a way you never knew how. ;^)

    Peat & Nova,
    He is amazing! There isn’t anything more exhilerating than seeing your baby for the first time!!! Both girls were over 8lbs…it makes you feel a little more confident when they aren’t teensy tiny….We hope you three are doing well. We can’t wait to hold him…
    We love you all! We’ll set up a visit after the three of you are settled.
    PS You are going to be wonderful parents!
