It's a wonderful Christmas gift, unwrapped 8 days early :)
Scarlett Noelle Jane Sistek was born Thursday at 1:04 p.m. in Seattle. And she was a little one -- weighing in at 6 pounds 11 ounces and 18" long. Thanks to all who sent prayers and well wishes -- the C-Section went great and mommy and baby are doing well, and we very much appreciate Mother Nature not tossing a surprising snowstorm or anything today (can't imagine if her birthday was in 2008!)
We're also taking ideas from those of you who have near or on Christmas birthdays or have kids who do -- how to you keep them separate? (And to those who wrote that they too have Dec. 17 as a birthday -- we're honored to share! :) )
I'll be back around the first of Feb. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Update! Hey, we finally figured out our middle names!
