The point is: please forgive if I'm not prompt calling/texting back, sending thank-yous, getting pictures out, or updating the blog on these major life events. Or maintaining personal hygiene. But we do so appreciate all the love and joy we have felt from everyone this past week. It means a lot when people are concerned for you and commiserate when things don't go your way; I think it means even more when people celebrate with you and your joy is their joy. That said, here is a video I put together so everyone can share a cuddle and a smile with us, and celebrate a special new spirit joining our family. The song is by a band Dave discovered last year that we just love, and this song could not be more perfect. Thank you Ivan and Alyosha for expressing so beautifully the hopes of a new parent for their child.

Good night, Neverland!
May we all sleep like babies tonight. Especially the baby. 🙏
