We're Just Mad About Saffron...

And on the 15th day...It's a girl!!!!

Saffron Juliet
Born February 8, 2013 @ 2:59pm (New Delhi)
Weight:  7 lbs., 4 oz. (3.3. kg)
Length:  19" (49 cm)

Healthy (and beautiful, of course) - the extra baking sure seemed to pay off!  We should get to take her home (to our Delhi apartment) on Sunday.

Here are a few initial pics (we tried to upload a slideshow, but hours later...  we'll wait for better internet).

What is this strange place?

I wanna go back inside!  Daddies - comfort me!

We'll do far better thank yous very soon - but our heart goes out to our wonderful surrogate and of course to Dr. Shivani - but a special thanks to Meg for helping us cross the finish line!

More pics tomorrow after we get to hold and feed her for the first time!!!
