Cora had her baby. A little girl named Belinda Melina. She was 20 inches long and 7 pounds, 7 inches when she was born a week ago.

I met her tonight. She is just perfect. With so much hair! And the sweetest pointy little chin.

After an hour of holding her, I tore myself away. And it was nearly all I could do to hand her back to her mother (!). Who is doing wonderfully.

What a blessing, that Cora's delivery was easy, that Baby Belinda is healthy and beautiful, and that I get a front row seat to a miracle.

I still smell like her.

Congratulations to the parents on such a beautiful blessing!
