Baby Hazel.

On Friday, October 3 — my newest niece, Hazel Rose, was born.

Rachel called me that morning to tell me that it would be Hazel’s BIRTH-day, so I asked Kevin if he could watch our kiddos while I went to hang with Rachel and my parents at the hospital.

I am so happy that I could be there.

It’s one of my most favorite things about being a sister.

My sister is a total rock star (duh) and she did amazing and Hazel Rose is just…perfect.

I’m so happy she’s here.

(Hey, Hazel!  I LOVE you!!)

Here’s how Hazel’s BIRTHday looked!

My nephew and I got to pick up the big sister from school that day.  She was so surprised to see me there — and totally knew what it meant!  She talked to me the entire way to the hospital.  She was beyond excited!

I took one last family of FOUR photo.

Matilda wrote notes in the waiting room.  Including, “I think Hazel is coming today.”  She thought right.

I walked the halls with Rachel for a little bit. And then I made Rachel pose for this picture when she was in between contractions, because that’s what mean older sisters are for.

And then I waited in the hallway just outside her room. And I heard Hazel’s first cries.  And I cried.  And it was neat and amazing.

And then I met Hazel.  She was about 20 minutes old and just awesome already.

The next day I couldn’t wait to see a picture of the bigs meeting the littlest for the first time.  I’m in love with this!

Six days later, I was back to hold Hazel, and this time I brought Alice.  Alice LOVES baby Hazel.  LOVES.

It’s been a great time.  I love baby Hazel.  And I love my sister and her wonderful family.

I’m so happy their family is complete and everyone is happy and healthy.
