Dean, Zina, Isaac, Mabel, Rose, and Henry are thrilled to announce

Hazel Grace

Born Thursday, February 26 at 1:39 AM

6 lbs 11 oz, 18″


This photo of Hazel at 8 minutes old was taken by my talented sister-in-law Amy.

We are home now and Hazel is doing great and so am I.  My blood pressure got so high that it was necessary to induce labor.  I’ll likely post the whole long story soon, as well as more photos.  Hazel is beautiful and perfect and we are all in love with her.

    Oh my goodness! She’s beautiful! And this is coming from a baby hater. I wondered where you’d been the past couple of days.

    I even gave you a small shout out on my blog today, but you just snuggle with your cute baby. Congrats!
