Dearest C


Nine days ago our daughter was born. For reasons we may never know, she decided that 36 weeks was enough cooking and was born happily and healthy at home. 

Four days old

We are all adjusting to the changes and so very grateful for how smooth the process was. I struggle to find the words to honor these experiences that have shifted our life in such profound ways. 

Thank you so very much to all those who have helped us and continue to help ease our transition. We appreciate your care more than we can express. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we adjust and strive to be the best parents for this incredible person. 



  1. Congratulations! Take it easy. Don't strive, you're already the best parents for her. Just be you and take care of yourself. Love you all! Shelley

  2. Wow - so wonderful! Congratulations, new family!

  3. You warm my heart, you three. Blessings and Love to you. Be cozy and safe.

  4. Wow, I can't believe that I'm just now finding out that your baby was born! Warm congratulations and best wishes to all three of you!

  5. Dear Myrrh,
    We barely new each other (through our mutual friend Joanna) but I have thought of you often over the years--for your sweetness and craftiness and business card in my wallet. I remembered your sewing on various occasions and wondered how you were doing. I saw your blog post on facebook tonight and behold! I see you have two beautiful children and lovely posts now for over 9 years (I remember through Joanna when you got engaged!). Congratulations on your 9th anniversary! So nice to see your blog and learn that your life is full, happy and healthy.
    Love to you!
