It's a...

GIRL!!!
It's a Girl!
She was born on Saint Patrick's Day at 5:25 pm. A St. Pats baby! We named her

Nidea Catherine.

after my great-grandmother (my mother’s mother’s mother), and Matt’s paternal grandmother. Catherine is also the patron Saint of the Arts – something we found particularly appropriate for the daughter of two architects.

Day 1

She weighed 6lbs and 13 oz and came into this world facing up – making for a very long and tough delivery. She’s 19 inches long and seems to get more beautiful by the second.
Day 1

So far everyone is resting and recovering well... and I'm starting to get pretty decent at typing with one hand so hopefully there will be more updates soon!

getting ready to go home
