The Assorted Notions baby has arrived!

She's here!  Our new family member was born on April 13, weighing 7 lbs 4 oz and measuring 19" long. 

We've been enjoying getting to know each other - at all hours of the day.  Her first night home, Tim and I were up at 4am searching iTunes for "white noise for babies"...

Can you believe this girl slept through her own birthday party?  I ate an extra slice of cake on her behalf.
