19 Oct

Aurelia Carmela Jesus entered the world at 5:43am on October 17, 2012, weighing 8 lb 3 oz, showing off a full head of jet-black hair and a very functional set of lungs.  John and I are overjoyed and so in love with our daughter!

Everyone is happy and healthy, and home now, discharged from the hospital 33 hours post-delivery.  I look forward to telling you more about her and her birth, but she’s just starting to wake for first breakfast.  Thank you so much for all your support and well wishes–words cannot describe how appreciative the three of us are!


aurelia, john, and anna

    Congratulations! 🙂 She’s beautiful and I wish your family all the best, :).

    It’s funny — I stumbled upon your blog right when you posted your pregnancy announcement so I’m half used to that as the theme of this blog.

      Haha….that is funny. Hopefully the theme isn’t overkill! Thank you for your warm wishes!

    A lovely name for a lovely young lady.

    I have no doubt that her grandmother and great-grandmother would be delighted, especially at the name choice.

    • annaojesus October 29, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

      Goodness, that’s so nice of you to say, Jim! Thank you…I hope they like the name 🙂 I hope they see her!
