i saw god today

witnessing the birth of a brand new being into this world is pretty much the most incredible thing a person can experience. i experienced it for the first time myself when i had my daughter, and less than a year later i have now gotten to experience it again with being at my new niece's birth. i am truly awe-struck at this moment of the divine meeting the human, of the transformation from entirely internal and mysterious into the external and curious. my new niece {she doesn't have a name just yet}, born on april 27th at 10:23am, after a very intense 12 hours of labor, weighed in at 7 lbs-11 oz and was 21-1/2" long. no doubt she'll be tall thin & beautiful just like her parents and her older sister.now alesia isn't the smallest one in the room anymore. . . . and she's very excited to have a new playmate!
boy, howdy, aren't we all.
welcome to the world, sweet baby-girl king. the world is such a better place now that you're in it!
