Hello, friends! I am overjoyed to introduce you to our daughter, June Chen Thomas. She joined our family on January 7, 2016 at 1:45pm, surprising us all by weighing 7 lbs, 14 oz and measuring 19.5 inches long! There were, in fact, many surprising things about her arrival, including the method (c-section), and there have been many surprises since. But the best “surprise” for these two newborn novices is just how completely, naturally, and totally we have fallen in love with her. She is the sweetest, best, most adorable little girl, and we are so grateful!

More to come soon! :)
