It gives me great pleasure to announce the birth of our daughter - Dia. She arrived after much difficulty this year.

In Hindi Dia means Light. In Spanish it means Day. Both of which are so appropriate for us. She certainly lights up our life and we look forward to spending days waking up to her smile.

The youngest PR member, Dia will accompany me to the PR office tomorrow where she will learn a little bit about her extended family - YOU!

She is too young to attend PR Weekend Chicago but is looking forward to the next one

Have I sewn for her? Not yet, but I plan to very soon. I just wanted to share this happy news with you and hope you can celebrate with us.

I am a MOM! And its a Girl...And she was certainly worth the wait.



Update 03/16/2011
First: I am so touched by your heartfelt wishes. Dia is blessed because there are so many wonderful people who are so happy for her. And yes, she has tons of Aunts who sew, so I guess she will be a little pampered girl

Today was Dia's 3rd day at the office and I am pretty impressed at how well behaved she has been. I didn't think she will last more than a couple hours but we've been here for over 7 hours! She sleeps through most of the day and plays in her car seat the rest of the time. Noelle and Diane are enjoying holding her whenever they get a minute and Dia loves the attention she is getting!
