our baby girl has arrived!


our baby girl has arrived!, originally uploaded by Jeff Epp.


8 lbs 5 oz bundle of joy! the above picture is about 20 minutes after she was born (11:39 am EST thurs, jan 17, 2008). everyone is healthy and sleepy.


Here she is 24 hours later. Her name is Kaiya (快也) Jade. Kaiya means forgiveness, and these Japanese charactors for ka-i-ya (快也) mean pleasant. We are beside ourselves with love for her.
