My birthday began...

with the water- birds and the birds of the winged trees

flying my name above the farms and the white horses

and I rose in a rainy autumn and walked abroad

in shower of all my days.       
- from "Poem in October" by Dylan Thomas

Baby "A" arrived in this jewel toned world
October 7th 2011
9 pounds 9ozs
22 and 1/4 inches

We are all perfectly smitten with him and soon I'll have time to tell you just how wonderful he is!

Oh happy day!!! What a beautiful, beautiful boy you've got there, mama! And that family picture is just lovely in so many ways. I love the way Champ is looking at the baby, and how you and Bear are suffused with joy. Fantastic. God bless you all.
