Little joy

I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday, but we have a new family member: My little brother’s daughter, Hazel Marie, arrived yesterday morning via C-section. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 8 oz., and reportedly started her day by wrapping her daddy around her little finger. I haven’t had a chance to talk to Oliver or Ashley yet, but early reports are that Hazel has dark, curly hair and is already good at sticking her tongue out and chewing on her fingers.

Pictures should be forthcoming today. I will certainly post one when I get it.

I have a faculty meeting and a full day of classes ahead of me, but I’m looking forward to spending part of this weekend shopping for baby presents so I can spoil her rotten as soon as I meet her (which will be during Thanksgiving break).
