Little Bit Riley

Look! A Baby!

Well. Hello there.

I kind of feel like I’ve been out of town for a long, long time, and now I’m coming back home and everything is just as I left it but somehow it feels strange to be back. Only instead of being out of town, I’ve been in the hospital / at home with my baby / trying to figure out what in the world this new life is going to be like. And instead of coming home, I just logged into my blog.


Guess what? I got a baby! This is the two of us watching The Today Show together. Maggie is very into the whole thing, as you can see from this picture.

She just loves that Matt Lauer.

Also, Rob and I have been trying to figure out who she most resembles. You know this game: Stare at an infant’s vague, not-yet-developed facial features and say, “Oh, I think she has my nose!” But when I took this picture of her, I knew at once that she did, in fact, take after her father. Please note the position of her eyes:

See how they are just barely off to the right? As if she was looking at the camera and then, at the last second, got distracted and shifted her focus? Guess who else does that?

I don’t need to say anything else, do I?

Didn’t think so.

Rob and I are feeling very blessed, excited, terrified, confused, in love, and a bit overwhelmed about this tiny little person who has entered our lives. She is everything we hoped for and more.

Be back when I can!

  1. Congratulations! Little bit is here!
    Well done new Mom and Dad, Santa came early for you.
    She definitely looks like her Dad and has your nose, the good news is babies change all the time but they tend to look like their daddy.
    So lucky you, you get to stare at the man you love and see him again in your daughter’s face.

  2. Ahhhh! She’s gorgeous! You look fabulous! Rob is a very lucky man. Treasure every moment…you’ll turn around twice, blink once and then she’ll be telling you that she really needs a new phone as she heads out the door with her friends…


  3. Congratulations!! It’s wonderful to hear that you are both healthy. I hope you’re getting some sleep.
