Our Little Bird Has Hatched

Yes the bird has arrived! And 11 days early!
We're thrilled to introduce you to:
Our hearts are overflowing with love. We're so lucky to add such a sweet baby to our family and she couldn't be more perfect. 
My labor/birth experience was luckily as successful and wonderful as one could be- minus about 45 minutes that I'll explain more about when I post our Birth Story. 

For now this Mama & Papa Bird duo are pretty tired (and sore) and preoccupied but I'll at least try to post a picture of Ro every day until we get settled in seeing as we just got home.

Thank you so much for all of your love and support! I can't tell you how much it meant for us to come home to all of your lovely messages and words of encouragement. There are a lot of emotions running through this nest right now and we're proud to have such great family, friends, and even an internet community to lean on. Thank you thank you thank you!

Love, 
Derek, Jessica & Rowan
