Nothing compares to having a first baby. Nor is there anything more splendid than looking into the face of your newborn. There is a sense of familiarity, not just for the mother who nurtured the tiny infant, but for her father as well. It is that first monumental moment when you realize that all things really are possible.
I'm so happy for Ryan and Krissie Newman. Ryan announced the birth of their daughter, Brooklyn Sage Newman on Thursday, when he reported via Twitter and Facebook that mother and child are doing fine. I can't wait to see first pictures, hear the first interview.
These are two beautiful, caring people whose very nature is loving and nurturing. Brooklyn is a lucky little girl to have such caring parents.
Congratulations to the happy couple and Happy Birthday to Brooklyn.
