Romy Bess Halpern-Cordell

Saturday November 1, 2008 at 3:55 am, Julie and I met face-to-face with our beautiful babe girl, Romy Bess Halpern-Cordell. This was 6 weeks earlier than anticipated.

Easily the most significant, most surreal, and most potent day of my life. I crumbled.

Romy is a "premee" but weighs in at a substantial 4 lbs, 15 oz. A full blown 17 inches in length. A beautiful head of fuzzed brown/blonde hair. And though she's got some work to do, she is on a straight path to rock and roll. Julie and I are so in love. Over the freaking moon.

To all the parents out there who've shown off endless pics of their babies, I get it. To all the parents who've told countless childbirth stories at countless dinner parties, I get it. To all the parents who've gone goo and goo and gah and gah to all too many baby faces, I get it.

I get it. I get it. I get it.

Congratulations to you all, and welcome to the world, Romy Bess.

And now, reading your post, the first day since Nov 4 I have felt I could safely wear mascara without risk of crying it off in rivulets of happy tears, I have black streaks down my cheeks again.

I can't wait to meet her in person (and you, too, partner!)

Love already,
Rachel Vail

Thanks, Rachel, for those very sweet words. Our home is all misty-eyes, all the time these days! And, hey, I can't wait to read the new manuscript!
