It finally happened. Our little girl Anna Silja made her grand entrance with considerable drama early Sunday morning. She arrived 12 days after due date, but she is well worth the wait! Mom and little Silja have spent the past five days in Wochenbett at the hospital as is the norm here in Austria, where the extremely kind nursing staff have been taking well care of us and assisting and supporting in everything from breast feeding techniques, diaper change and all those other practicalities that comes with a little new one.
Now we are home and it's so so great to be here. She is absolutely perfect and we cannot take our eyes off her, in awe of this little miracle that has landed right between the two of us.
