the late arrival of harper mae

Harper Mae has finally arrived.  She was born on February 4, 2012, at 3:30 pm (you Americans are reading the future right now).  6 lbs, 12 oz — 20 1/2 in.  May God be praised!

Mother and child are both healthy and happy… and resting right now.  Me, I’m posting pictures of my second beautiful daughter on the internet.

I can’t help but think about how scared and afraid I was at this point with Baylor — I just knew I would accidentally crush the fragile child.  But I didn’t.  Nor will I this one, you’ll be happy to know.

    So does Baylor look really huge compared to Harper? No one warned us how big AE would look. I always thought, the newest one would seem so tiny, but instead it was the other way around. Crazy how fast they grow up. I hope Baylor doesn’t get too jealous. Harper is beautiful. Congrats.

  18. Chris

    Congratulations! She’s beautiful – Just like Baylor!
