on tuesday, december 10th, we welcomed this little bundle of apprehensive joy into the world:
we are calling her hazel grace.
and she was 21 inches long and 7 lbs 15 oz.
and was born at 11:20 am.
i’ll post more details later, about how the whole thing actually went down. but, for now, here’s some pictures of the last four-ish days…
isaac is completely smitten.
anna is less certain. i think this is the exact moment she realized she is a middle child.
she warmed up a little later. 🙂
derek captured this super sweet shot, with his fancy pants iphone 5s.
isaac lost a tooth at school during my hospital stay. this is unrelated to hazel.
the kids visited the second day and things were a little more calm. isaac gazed at hazel some.
and took a turn feeding her.
and anna held.
and fed. 🙂
i made sure to get a wrinkly foot pic. in black and white. because that’s what you’re supposed to do.
on thursday morning, we were sprung. we showed hazel her new home.
she tested out her new quilt, from my friend (quiltmom) kim.
snuggles with anna.
anna suddenly seems like a big kid, now that there is a tiny new person on the scene.
that’s the photo documentation.
stay tuned for the details. if you’re interested in such things.
