Hello everyone,

Dionne is doing absolutely fantastic, as is little Naiya. We should all be home from the hospital tomorrow morning/afternoon (10/3/2006). The labor was intense and seemed to take forever, but Dionne was a trooper and made it completely drug free. I was terrified, but she was great. Naiya has been great for the first 24 hours and appears to be in perfect health. Thank you to everyone for your love and support.

Here are a few pictures to start. I am sure more will be coming soon.
