B G Collins

Posted by Matty

At least that’s what her nursery paperwork says now. We’re pretty sure that it stands for baby girl Collins. Mom and Dad are still working on figuring out the baby’s name (and baby ain’t talkin’).

Oh yeah, and first pix are inside! Click the ‘Read more’ link…

There’s so much to tell you about our beautiful new girl. Most importantly, she’s healthy and happy. Every hour brings us new joys and experiences as we go through the sleep-deprived tribulations of parenthood. Words cannot even begin to describe…

We made it through the first night. As I write this, Nancy is sleeping a few feet away. We’ve had feedings, and changed our first diapers. We’ve had some mixed results with swaddling, but we’re getting better.

B G Collins was born yesterday at 3:17 pm, weighing 7lbs 12oz, and measuring 19 3/4″ long. She’s got a bit of blonde hair, like her mother.

On to the pictures. This is just a taste. I’ll have more updates, pictures, and cute baby videos soon. Well, maybe after a nap.
