We are so grateful for our India...
hugs to all
peacocks, raincoats and a camel hair brush (+ Circa Trade, Hudson (Valley) life, travels, finds, people I like and other inspiring things.)
In plenty of time for Thanksgiving, and a healthy 2 weeks before her due date,
on November 19th, at 4:28am,
weighing in at 6lbs 12oz,
INDIA MARIA CHILOV
arrived safe, sound and cute.
Since arrival she's:
Filled tiny diapers
Opened eyes long enough to gaze on brother Wyeth
Repeated above - on a 24-hour clock of her own keeping.
She's lovely, sweet, gamely bundle-able into Ergo and a remarkable feeder for one so small...
Wyeth is mostly pleased, and proud to show her off at school,
Ruslan is truly pleased but will probably be more pleased when we find a rhythm and he gets his wife back and
I'm very very pleased, relieved to have her out and healthy, and catching an hour's sleep here and there.
And we're ALL looking forward to Christmas as a newly minted family of 4.
Sending love and thanks for all we've been given,
Courtney, Ruslan, Wyeth and India
