Introducing . . .




Margaret Kaylyn
born: June 22, 2009 1:44 pm
weight: 4 lbs 5 oz
length: 18 inches
answers to Margaret, Meg, Meggie, Megs, Baby Meg, and "My Mawrgwet"

I told Jared that we could go low-key this year on my birthday, especially since it was the day after Fathers' Day and a week before our daughter was scheduled to arrive. However, our day was anything but low-key, and culminated in the birth of Margaret. I'll post the birth story soon, but wanted to make sure that those of you who don't follow me on facebook or twitter heard our good news.

By the way, Margaret was my maternal grandmother's name, and Kaylyn is taken from my mom's and my MIL's middle names to honor both of them. Thus, this precious little daughter of ours (and I do mean little-yowsahs!) has some wonderful namesakes to emulate.

What beautiful pics. Margaret is very popular. I got to hold her last night after we left you. She was all mine for about 40
mins while she "ate." We definitely bonded :)!

Happy Birthday! and CONGRATULATIONS!!! She is beautiful. I just love the pictures of all of your kids holding her. She is bigger (by an ounce) than my little D was. It's hard to remember just how small that really is, but it's amazing how they grow. Best wishes to both of you.
