Daddy Days

I’m in the club!

Emmanuelle Hope Bandura made her 7 pound, 14 ouce appearance into the world on Sunday night just in time for supper.  Mom and baby are both napping as I write, and I can definitely see it taking “a few” days to develop something resembling a routine around here.

For those seeking photos, below are at least a few to proof the existence of our sweet little girl.

1) The official first shot…

2) First family portait…

3) Our wonderful nurse.

4) This week’s special: Baby burrito.

5) My parents, happy to be grandparents again.

6) So sleepy…
