Our daughter, Greta Suzanne



February 15, 2012     Personal

On February 2nd my life was transformed once again as our little girl made her way into the world. At 10:01 a.m. time stood still for us as we heard her immediate cries followed by a long peaceful moment as we met one another. Her Daddy's eyes filled with tears and I beamed from ear to ear as her beautiful big eyes stared right into mine. It was as if we already knew one another.

Since Greta's birth, somehow we have not skipped a beat. She's so brand new, yet at the same time it's as if she's always been a part of our family. Every day I'm in disbelief about how mellow...and dare I say, "easy", Greta is. In fact the other day I told her that it would be OK if she cried a little more. :) As for Greta's big brother Alexander, we couldn't be more proud of our little guy. He is so incredibly gentle with his sister and has such a sweet, tender heart. At times, if Greta is crying, Alex will lower his head and big alligator tears will fall from his eyes. He doesn't like it when she's sad...like I said, he is so tender-hearted.

Hearing Alex's big belly laughs throughout the house with Greta's soft breathing as she lays on my chest ... well, there's nothing in the world like it. My heart doubled in size on February 2nd and feels a joy that I know will just continue to grow.

Welcome to the world sweet Greta! We will surround you in our family's love forever.



Alex was outstanding meeting Greta, but was also quite focused on escaping from the hospital room. :)
(And yes, his hair is quite outstanding as well) :)
