Introducing Greta!

Our beautiful baby girl, Greta, was born just over a week ago on Tuesday, September 11 at 10:34pm! She weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 21 inches long.

Greta is already taking after her parents by eating like a champ, and she is very alert and curious about her surroundings when she’s awake. She especially loves staring at her black and white books and art cards. We’re tired, but everything is going really well so far. We’ve been trying to get out of the house at least once a day for a walk, visit to the store, quick trip to Starbucks, or a bite to eat for lunch in our neighborhood. Each day is bringing something new – whether it be figuring out how to use our Ergo carrier or giving her a bath. We’ve filled up the memory card on our camera several times over already and are just such proud parents. Greta is such a joy!

I have about 10 or recipes that I made before our little one was born that I’ll be sharing over the next several weeks. Hopefully I’ll be back in the kitchen soon as well!

  15. Please do take this as a compliment because the picture I think of when I say this reminds me of what I’m seeing in the one you’ve posted: She looks like the Gerber baby! Absolutely beautiful and sweet! Congratulations to both of you!

    It’s a relatively good shot (since you didn’t give her place of birth which, of course, I understand :) ) that she’s a Gemini rising. You’ll find her to be a delightful conversationalist–most likely like her new mommy! I’m so happy for you! Again, congratulations!
