Hello, Hazel!!!!

Little Hazel Claire has arrived! She made her appearance at 12:41 PM on 12/30. We were so excited to finally meet her! Her delivery was super fast- we couldn't have asked for a better experience. It was much easier the 2nd go 'round! We were so fortunate to have so much family here to welcome her into the world & help take care of big brother Hutch. She is the sweetest little thing & she looks just like me! Now Jeremy & I each have a mini-me! My Mom is here all week, so we have really enjoyed just relaxing and cuddling up with this baby girl- she loves to be wrapped up & held close. This is so much fun, but it can definitely be challenging come bedtime. Not getting quite as much sleep as I had hoped for, but that is to be expected. Hutch is starting to acknowledge her presence- he was indifferent & pretty much ignored her for the first couple of days. He will now walk up to her & say "sister" and stare at her for a few minutes before walking away. We know he is going to be such a great big brother & eventually just adore his little sister! Here are some pics:

Check out that head of hair!!!!

I will definitely post more pics soon- things have grown just a bit busier at our house over the past few days, so the blog has taken a few steps back on the priority list. BUT, I promise to post more pics as soon as I can!
