Welcome Marielle!



Marielle Thompson was born at 12:53 A.M. today. She was 8 pounds, 3 ounces and 21 inches long. The birth went really well (no epidural...just a lot of focused relaxation techniques on Charisse's part). Marielle and Charisse are doing great and looking very lovely. More photos and comments are forthcoming.

Darn you and all my other friends having beautiful babies over the past few months. You'll make me baby hungry again before I need to be having another baby!

She is absolutely wonderful, and I love her name. It's so you, and I'm sure it will be so her. CONGRATULATIONS!

P.S. You look far too pretty to have just had a baby. Did someone come in and do your hair and makeup while you were loopy on meds or something? You look awesome!
