Dorothy Pearl Merholz

Two and a half years ago, I announced the birth of our baby boy, Jules Joseph Merholz. Today, I belatedly announce the birth of our daughter, Dorothy Pearl Merholz.


Dorothy was born March 14, 2011, at 1:46pm. A shade under 7 pounds. Nearly a week later, and she’s happy, healthy, eating like a horse (far beyond her birth weight, even after the initial postpartum weight loss), and taking in the world around her. Her big brother is super proud, and her mom and I could use some more sleep.
