  An update is in order.  The labor was a bit longer and harder than Amara 
  had hoped for.  But she gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Vija 
  (vee-ya).  Attached is a low-res cellphone pic and some daat Amara took 
  from the hospital.  She hopes to get around to more of an announcement 
  and sharing soon.
