A New Ritskes!!

At 7:26 this morning Nolana and I welcomed a little girl into our family! Her name is Daija Grace (pronounced like Asia with a D) and she was 8lbs 5oz. She is cute as the proverbial button, long like her mama and has a head full of hair that is already looking a little curly. The labor wasn't too bad and was manageable for both of us. We are happy and home, enjoying out little girl!

If you're in Victoria, we really do want to see you all and I know you're going to want to see Daija... just don't surprise us! Call, and if we don't answer don't take it personally - we'll call back. Thanks for all the support and encouragement you've all given us, we appreciate it!
