I've been lurking a bit on this thread and I am so happy to see that you have your little girl now!! Congratulations, she's a beauty!

I wish your wife well in getting better quickly after this long haul.

I'm also intrugued by your job. I just turned down a contract position calling customers of one of the larger banks to make sure the software conversion process is working for them. My due date for this baby is right around the time the project is scheduled to end so I couldn't take the job. Wonder if it was the same bank. :)

I've missed so much while I was (well, still am) away! I am so very, very happy for you and so glad that all has worked out well. I do hope they both make it home soon with no further complications for either mother or daughter. What a beauty Gianna is, by the way. You've both done so well - may you have years and years to enjoy this beauty together.

Thanks for sharing her picture.

Your daughter is very cute (I'm sure that she has you wrapped around your finger already), and looks perfect.

Glad to hear that she went home, hopefully mother and daughter are growing healthier by the day.
