On March 29th, at 12:09 am, Kelly and I welcomed Marjorie Jeanne Bettner into the world. Life has been especially busy since then. Having two daughters (one a newborn and the other 1.5 years old) is quite a handful. So, the ability to take and share pictures has not been as easy as with Marilyn, but we've done our best and captured some images that we'll cherish forever.
Happy one-month to my sweet little baby girl!
Marji was born very healthy and the delivery was much faster/easier than Marilyn's. Shortly after her birth, however, Kelly had some post-delivery issues that required surgery. It was scary, but it all went well. Mom and baby were happy, healthy and reunited within 2 hours.
