Introducing...


Marlo Iris Armstrong

7lbs. 15oz.

21 inches long

born at 1:53 AM, 06/14/2009, her official due date





Her middle name was chosen to honor Jon's aunt Iris who passed away last summer, a generous, gentle woman whose life was filled with all sorts of music. Her first name? Well, it just kicks a lot of ass.


Marlo looks remarkably more like a Hamilton than an Armstrong and probably resembles my father more than anyone else. Although, she has an incredibly deep dimple on the left side of her face, something she inherited from two of Jon's sisters.



Leta looked very much like a frog when she was a newborn. Marlo looks like a glowworm.


Labor was an absolute thrill ride that I will write about in detail later this week, but first I need to get some sleep, not easy when this baby takes to picketing and lobbying congress when removed from my boob.



You may call her Marlo, Lo, Lil Donette, or Butternut Boo.


Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and prayers. It's been a blast having you all along for the ride.
