Cousin Hazel



Here's Kate's newest cousin, Hazel Christine, born Sunday morning. (More on my mom's blog.) Congratulations to Barb and Kyle! She's a beautiful baby.

Barb was there when Kate was born. I'm not sure what she thought of the whole experience, but I remember how I felt afterwards--completely wrung out, and a bit shocky (darn episiotomy....) and then the first couple of weeks home with the baby and trying to figure everything out. I know Barb will be a great mom!

I got to ooh and awwwww over her yesterday, but I'm always willing to sigh over a baby! She's so adorable! Congratulations!

My sister was at my oldest's birth too.

ooh, a family that gets to start calling hazelnuts Filberts. ;)

Hazel is steve's mom's name and she insisted on the kids using the old fashioned filbert moniker for the nuts. I think the comparison to the nut was just a little too close to true when she was raising eight kids. ;)

Your neice Hazel is a little sweety. Congratuations to the family!

Thanks for all the sweet comments! We sure love her. Now that she is a few days old I think she is looking somewhat like Kate at that age. We'll have to see of course. She has dark hair right now, also just like Kate had. She is a wonderful blessing to our family.
