Miss Jackson is Finally Here!

Margaret James Sommer was born yesterday afternoon at 2:27 p.m.  9 lbs., 4 oz., 20 3/4 inches long.  We call her Maisie.  

With unsurprising parental bias, we think she is pretty much the cutest thing that we have ever seen and, as I expected, Jake is so good with her.  They are best buddies already.  She is already really fun and it's amazing to feel like we have  gotten to know her so well after only a day.

Blogger is being ornery about uploading our photos, but I'll work on that so that you can all see her spiky dark hair, big eyes, and REALLY chubby cheeks.

Congratulations, Emilie and Jake!

My beloved grandmother's name was Margaret, so I think it's a lovely choice. And the nickname is so great. Also! I happened to turn 30 on Maisie's birthday and have always felt that August 17th is the best birthday ever because it was good for pool parties and summer vacation was always still on. (Plus we share it with Robert DeNiro, Sean Penn, one of the Wahlbergs, and Colin Moulding of XTC!)
