OT: Baby Announcement

I wanted to drop a note to all of you; just in case you haven't been on facebook and/or didn't otherwise hear...

Our 2nd daughter was born yesterday morning (1/13/09) at 8:25. She was 7 pounds 2 oz... 21 inches long. Her name is Petra Grace.

Both her and JJ are doing well and the hope is that both will be able to come home this afternoon or early evening! Sophia is taking the news pretty well (although she is probably even more excited about staying at "aunt Roxie's" house while we're at the hospital than the baby at this point).

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers on our behalf....

Grace and Pace,

PS... yes the hat is hand knit... It's 100% Alpaca that I also handspun :-)

Congratulations! Same weight and length as my Baby brother, who was also a January baby....(wierd the trivia that sticks in your mind for 40 plus years, isn't it?)
