Nyla Abigail Van Langeveld

So, we haven't added to this blog in a little while, but now we feel that we have some news to post that people will actually be interested in. We had a baby!

Other changes since our last post:
1) I got a job at GE Capital.
2) Alisa finished working for the Flourishing Families project.
3) We left Seattle in March 2008 and moved back to Utah. We now live in an apartment in North Salt Lake.

Now back to the biggest change:

Her name is Nyla Abigail and she was born on July 22nd at 7:09 PM. She was 7 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long.

This photo was taken when she was about 20 hours old. She makes great eye contact and has since the first day. We have had a really great time with her, although there have been some struggles too. We aren't sure what color her eyes will turn out to be - probably brown, but sometimes they still look very blue.

When Nyla was two weeks old, a friend of ours took some baby photos. I've posted some here and you can see others at sarahstilesphotography.blogspot.com.
