Yesterday, we welcomed a new addition to our family.  Eva Akemi Sakasegawa was born at 9:05 on the morning of September 19. She was greeted by lots of loving family:

Mother and baby got to spend a lot of quality time together that afternoon.

For months, Jason has been so excited to become a big brother.  Now that his sister has arrived, he's been great with her.  He loves talking to her, and telling us everything that she's doing and thinking.  "Can I hold her again?" he asked, over and over again, and when we let him, he demonstrated how gentle he could be, stroking her hair and giving her soft kisses.

The first time I picked her up, I wished Eva a happy birthday.  I'm so happy to have the chance to get to know her.
