One week ago today, Lindsay Alice joined us at 8:42 in the evening. 3.08 kilograms and 51 cms. I'll let you pull out your smartphone to do the calculations just as Jason did in the delivery room that night. The photos below are courtesy of friends who kindly visited us in the hospital.
Our little good luck charm joined us on the Japanese holiday of Setsubun, a day heralding the coming of spring in which you throw roasted soybeans out of the door (or at someone wearing a demon mask) in order to cast demons out and invite good spirits into your home. It seems an appropriate day for her to join us as we start our new life together.
