An early and very special arrival



Let me introduce you to our little baby girl. We don't know her name yet, as she was in a bit of a hurry arriving into this world, so K. and I are still discussing the possible options. But she's gorgeous, and despite being few weeks too early, she's doing very well. So are her parents :) She arrived into this world at 5.52 pm on Friday, January 30th, weighing in at 2460 grams and 48 cm.

The picture above is taken this morning, when she's about 40 hours old (young?).

As we'll be spending the next week or so recovering at the birth clinic, there won't be much cooking happening at Nami-Nami household at the moment. But don't despair - this might just give me a chance to finally tell about those fantastic food-related trips to Spain (meal at El Bulli!) and the US we had last summer.

Life is beautiful.

Congratulations, dear Pille! She is darling, of course. And I can guarantee you that your life will be dramatically, sleep-deprived better now.

And give yourself a break! We can wait for the El Bulli posts. Promise.

She IS beautiful, and she shares a birthday with someone else very beautiful: our little grandson, Logan. He turned five on Friday (and celebrated by getting a cast on his leg).

FWIW, she is an Aquarius with moon at 0 degrees Aries, and 25 degrees Leo rising. With most of the planets on the western side of her chart, she is in a "reaping" incarnation, karmically speaking. This lifetime she will learn to go with the flow, not push the river. Lessons come from others.

She has an interesting chart.

Blessings to you all, from the central coast of California.

Nii pisike väike armsus :)
Võrdõiguslased võiksid turtsuda, aga ma arvan, et sellistel emadel peaks ikka üks tütar olema. Tulevasi toredaid kooskokkamisi teile! Ning helgeid hetki kogu perele! :)
