Our little bundle of joy arrived on 08.08.08, at 4:35 PM, weighing 6 lbs 10 oz, and all of 20 inches long (though if you measure from toe-tip to the end of her hair she has to be over 21 inches!).

Her name is Hope Ann. Hope has been the name I hoped to one day choose for a baby girl for many years now, and it seems to fit her beautifully. Ann was chosen as her middle name as it is my mother’s middle name, and my middle name (her first daughter) as well. I liked the thought of continuing that through another generation. Who knows, perhaps one day my daughter will do the same with her first little girl.
