A "Drum Roll" Please

I can't wait another minute to share a picture of Matilda Isabella with you. I've been waiting for John to email to me some photos he took that are so adorable but I'm sending one from when she was a day old! But first.............here's Dr. John (the proud Dad) getting ready to go in to be with Lisa during the birth. The smile belies his nervousness and tension about the whole thing. I raised those kids to smile for a photo - no matter what! Just kidding................... Here's "the first glance" for Lisa when they brought her from the nursery to her room. Needless to say it was awe. Mom is doing fine - as Lisa said, "None of these shots are "Glamour shots"". She has such a great sense of humor! I love that about her - among other things.
And, ta da, here she is Matilda Isabella Eckrote - the apparent heir to who knows what - hopefully a life of happiness, comfort, joy and tranquility. A road traveled with lots of love, friends and family..............

It's a miracle - each and every birth! Ain't life grand?
