    I took you 4 hours before you posted this – what took you so long ? :-)

    Congratulations Karyn and David – you might want to get the paperwork sorted out since Nicole will be moving to New York in a couple weeks.

    Congratulations Karyn, Dave & Marley. We saw Nicole yesterday and she is beautiful. What a wonderful addition to our family. Nicole, your eight cousins all welcome you. You now make eight grand daughters and leave Jake as our only grandson. We are thrilled for you. With all our love.

    Hi Marley – Congratulations on becoming a big sister! It’s really a lot of fun, and you’ll get to show Nicole the ropes. She’s beautiful – just like you. I can’t wait for my mommy and daddy to bring me to see you this summer. My baby sister Valerie will come too. We can talk about how to boss our baby sisters around.
    We send lots of love to you, Nicole, and your mommy and daddy.
    Love, Audrey (and Valerie and mommy Sue and daddy Adam)

    So happy to have had the pleasure of meeting Nicole two days in a row! She is so sweet… and quiet! I enjoyed watching Marley’s reaction to her. Just perfect. I look forward to seeing all of you every opportunity I can get. Love to all and a big welcome to little Nicole, the newest Bradfield.

    I totally lost the office pool. First I bet it was a boy, and second, I bet you would have delivered much much earlier. Even though you are still early, it felt so late?!
    CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!! I love the name. Nicole and Marley – beautiful. I’m so glad everything went well.
    Lots and lots of love,

    [...] On Friday, July 14th, our second daughter, Nicole, was born. Five hours after she arrived, we learned that she had several characteristics of Down Syndrome. This was a shock, especially under the fog of sleep deprivation. Now, five days later, the initial round of testing indicates that she does have the condition. There’s nothing easy about this, especially given everything else that’s going on in our lives, but it is less of a shock because we’ve had time to come to terms with how it will change our lives. Leaving family and friends behind in Toronto at this time seems even more difficult, given the new circumstances. Fortunately we’re going to a place (New York City) where we hope to find incredible services and support. [...]

    Love to all of you
