Say hi to Anne

Anne Muriel was born today at 5:39 P.M., weighing in at 8 lbs. 5 oz. and measuring 21 inches long. Labor and delivery went smoothly, despite being an induction. Well, it was mostly smooth from my point of view. I think it was somewhat less stressful than Nicole or Nathan's birth, but the whole labor/delivery thing freaks me out. The worst part was when the anesthesiologist was giving the epidural. That part took a while and was somewhat painful for Lauren. He wasn't nearly so good as Max, the attending anesthesiologist for Nicole's birth, who will forever live on in our minds as the laboring woman's best friend.

I would post pictures, but I forgot to bring the camera home with me from the hospital. I had to come home and rescue our dear neighbor from the crazy monkeys that are my kids. Who, by the way, are the cutest little things ever. When Nathan heard that Anne was born, his eyes lit up and he said, "Now I'm a big brother!" She's in good hands.


She's adorable! I totally see her siblings in her, but that hair is all daddy. Give her a hug from us! - Brekke


I'm so glad little Anne finally made her appearance. Nathan is so cute, and what a great big brother he'll be!
