introducing...

Lily Soh Won Ballard


At 4:22 p.m., after sixteen hours of labor, three hours of pushing, and one emergency C-section, we welcomed the newest Ballard into the family on her due date--March 10, 2011. She weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and measured 19 inches long. We are absolutely smitten and taking it all in. There will be many, many more pictures to come!
