Newborn Hope, just 5 minutes after birth!

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.

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.

I decided to start a blog for Hope as a way for me to be able to share the joys and stories of watching her grow, and allow friends and family who are not a daily part of her life to stay updated as well. I hope you enjoy reading it and seeing her new photos as much as I enjoy taking and sharing them!
