On January 26, 2011, Timo, Leah and Isabel welcomed the newest member
of their family. Sarah Maria Jaakkimainen was born at 11:36 AM,

I was holding back from more updates until I had time to revamp the website. However,
people have asked for updates, so I will try to do so with the current setup. Sarah is
doing excellent; she regained her birth weight in one week and has gained a whole kilogram
in one month. Except for some gas pains, she's a very happy, content and easy going baby.
Leah is recovering from some postpartum issues, and so Timo has taken time off work for
a couple of months to be at home. Isabel is very loving to her baby sister and helps wherever
she can (changing diapers, feeding, etc.). [New pictures below]
January 30, 2011 - Today, we officially announced the name of our baby
girl: Sarah Maria Jaakkimainen. Sarah means "princess" in Hebrew; it was also the
name that Isabel was calling the baby for the last month in Leah's womb. Maria is
in honour of Timo's father (it is Matti's mother's name). Leah and baby Sarah were
also discharged from the hospital today, and so Sarah is now at home with the rest
of the family. (Note: fewer posts in the days to come, until I redesign the website)
January 28, 2011 - Leah is recovering well and in good spirits. The
baby has started to nurse and is doing very well. She enjoys being held, even
when it's nap time. Hearing test passed. No name yet, but it's coming soon.
