Welcome Lauren!!!

On July 15th, 2010 at 12:52pm we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Lauren Elisabeth entered the world at 9 lbs 2.5 oz and 20.5 in. With reddish-blonde hair and all her cute little fingers and toes she's everything we've been waiting for.
I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I'll just use the photo above for my excuse. Somehow I think we'll be forgiven. Thank you all for your wishes and understanding. We really do appreciate it.

    Oh welcome, dear little Lauren!

    Congratulations, Don and Krise! Of course you're forgiven, especially since you shared this beautiful moment with us. Thank you for doing so. Looks like I was a day early bugging you. ;)

  5. Oh she is too cute. Look at that sweet smiley face.

    Congratulations Don and Krise! She's absolutely gorgeous. She almost appears to be smiling in this picture. The happiest days are when babies are born!

  9. From Krise and I, a sincere thank you. We appreciate the kind comments and congratulations. Things are going well so far, other than a slight change in our sleep schedule. It's definitely worth it though. I'm sure Lauren will be making an appearance on here from time to time so as not to be outdone by her sisters.

    Huge congrats to you all on your sweet new daughter. Wishing you lots of sleep and a pace of life you can all manage and enjoy. I'm glad she arrived before the start of school for older sibs so that everyone can be together. So, when does she get her first camera? ;^)

    I've been so negligent with the Tacoma Photo blog that I haven't seen this. So sorry. . . . best wishes! Lauren must be settling in nicely by now.
