My Birthday

Hello Loyal Blog Readers:

Yesterday, September 2, I decided that it was such a beautiful day in Portland that I would make it my birthday! And, no use in waiting! I woke my mom up early, at 4:15AM, and quickly let her know that she should get ready for my arrival. I was enjoying the sun at Kaiser's Sunnyside Hospital in Clackamas by 6:49AM!

My parents were a little surprised by how big I am... 10 Lbs and 21 1/2" in length. That is quite a bit bigger than my 'big' brother Jonah, but I think it may be a little while before we catch up.

We had a great day celebrating my birthday, visiting with family and friends, and enjoying the day. We got through the night, and today we decided to go home. My big brother Jonah stopped by to stay hello, but he is staying another day with our grandparents Nana and Papa and playing with trains. So now, we are just relaxing at home, enjoying some Thai food (milk for me) that our friend Sara brought over, and getting ready for bed.

Until another day,
--Esther Dyk
