This is Kivrin’s picture from the Stormont Vail website — see her birth announcement there. In addition to the price of bread, the stock market and the population on the date of her birth, the site also listed the Topeka sunrise and sunset for that day, which is how we learned that Kivrin was born exactly at sunrise – 6:44 am, on the day she was born!

Although Kivrin doesn’t necessarily wake up at sunrise every morning, she does nurse every 2-4 hours, so I have been awake more between 3 and 7 am in the last few weeks than I had since my last college all-nighters.
