A Dumpling, from Scratch

She's here!

Nola Evelyn Cobbett was born on December 14, 2015 at 2:56 pm after a brief, intense labor assisted by the midwives at New Birth Company.

My late Grandma, Bernice Evelyn Witt was also born on December 14.

Nola is a sweet, calm, healthy baby and we are all smitten!

I was so fortunate to have both of my siblings in town from Oregon within an hour of the birth. My dear brother is the one in the photo above.  And, of course, my parents are thrilled.  They are the best grandparents!

My recovery is going very well and we are loving our new status as family-of-four.

Happy Christmas week, everyone!  The best gift came early for us!
