no title needed : )

Just. Too. Exhausted.
Let's go with minimal information and a few photos, shall we?

A perfect Northwest autumn day for a birthday!

This being born thing is a tough gig.

Tired, happy mama. Sleepy baby.

Pleased uncle.

Proud grandpa.*

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am thrilled to introduce you to

Lily Kristin** Athena.

My granddaughter.

*Not posting a photo of me with Lily because, as usual, all the pictures of me suck. A lot.
**Isn't that a sweet coincidence that the first of Lily's two middle names is Kristin--just like me! And it's even spelled the same!

Everyone is healthy and fine, yes?

countrymouse said...

Yes, Jen--I guess I could have added that bit of information : )

It was thrilling--and exhausting! Beautiful's best friend and I were her birthing partners. Beautiful was AMAZING! I was offered the option of cutting the cord, but, ummm, ewww? So the best friend did it. It was truly an awesome experience : )

Mary said...

Oh my, Kristin. She's absolutely beautiful.

I'm so very happy for you all.

BTW, absolutely gorgeous photo of Beautiful and Lily. I wish I looked that good *ever*, never mind looking that good after *giving birth*!

Congratulations to all!!

Congratulations Beautiful and Grandma!

xoxo, Auntie Amy

PS: Email me an address where I can send a baby gift please,

Ohmigosh. I agree with Mary. What a lovely photo of Beautiful and baby. Lily is absolutely perfect. I can't wait to see her in person. Congrats and great job, Granny Mouse! (Okay, Beautiful did a pretty amazing job, too.)
