Denise and I received the ultimate Valentine’s Day present: a seven-pound, healthy baby girl. Ava arrived at 10:32 in the evening, and, good lord, there was no greater moment than watching her enter the world. Everyone immediately commented on her full head of hair. A photographer snapped some marvelous shots including one of me holding her tiny feet which I hope to post as soon as the CD arrives.
Thank you all for your kind e-mails, gifts, and posts.
