Talvi and Daniel

Baby Brooklyn Family Montie


We’re home! Kesa and Talvi got wonderful care at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt, from Melanie and Laurie, Amanda, Kathy, Amy, Beth, and Kathy #2. We really couldn’t have asked for more caring, competent midwives and nurses. But we were so ready to be home. And now we are.

Talvi Theodora Mintz was born on December 26th at 5:30 p.m. ¬†She weighs 6 lbs 12 oz. and is 20.5″ long.

Mom and baby are doing well.

So apparently this is possible…
