We are so happy and proud to introduce Symphony Susanna Rose, our beautiful, sweet daughter.
She was born Sunday April 18th, 2010 at 12:35pm, in Santa Rosa, California. 6 pounds, 2 ounces and 19.7 inches - but she is already up in her weight since birth (usually newborns lose some weight in their first week) and is so happy, healthy, gentle, and amazing! She is a fabulous nurser, makes the sweetest cooing baby sounds, and rarely cries. Everyone agrees she is perfect, healthy, gorgeous, and so lovable.
We are head over heels in love, and are taking some good time to rest, recover, and enjoy our family bonding time. Thank you for all of the support, love, and well wishing! There are sure to be MANY more photos coming soon, and we hope to be open for visits from friends and family soon.
Jessamyn, Devon, and sweet Symphony.
(The first two fantastic photos were taken by my friend Michelle, who is a great photographer, and whose website is http://www.feileacan.com/. She is available for a bit longer if you need a photographer, but since she's about 30 weeks pregnant, get her while you can!)
"The word symphony derives from Greek συμφωνία, meaning "agreement or concord of sound"... from σύμφωνος, "harmonious"." "Harmony, especially of sound or color... Something characterized by a harmonious combination of elements."
And here is a song I've had in my head for months:
