Newborn Hope, just 5 minutes after birth!

Our little bundle of joy arrived on 08.08.08, at 4:35 PM, weighing 6 lbs 10 oz, and all of 20 inches long.

Her name is Hope Ann. Hope has been the name I hoped to one day choose for a baby girl for many years now, and it seems to fit her beautifully. Ann was chosen as her middle name as it is my mother’s middle name, and my middle name (her first daughter) as well. I liked the thought of continuing that through another generation. Who knows, perhaps one day my daughter will do the same with her first little girl.

I decided to start a blog for Hope as a way for me to be able to share the joys and stories of watching her grow, and allow friends and family who are not a daily part of her life to stay updated as well. I hope you enjoy reading it and seeing her new photos as much as I enjoy taking and sharing them!

    I’M SO GLAD YOU HAVE THIS SITE!!! What a joy to be a part of watching her grow up; SHE’S GROWING LIKE A WEED! I can’t believe how much she’s changed; she’s truly a little precious bundle; honestly a beautiful tiny cherub. You guys done good! I’m just amazed at how fast she’s growing and all the expressions she now has! Wow! She’s going to be A VERY TYPICAL LEO, you two, and speaking from experience, um, er, well, you’ll see (do the words ‘Drama Queen’ conjure up any feelings about your future “HERE I AM” baby? We’re truly unique; Laura, YOU, of all people should know that!! Don’t worry; we’re altruistic, loving, warm, personable, and, well, a little on the “let’s do it my way, k?” side…….nothing wrong with that, we’re born leaders! (God help her future siblings! 🙂

    Thanks for such a LOVELY SITE, you guys…………Richard, I know you worked your butt off getting this up and running! You are JUST incredible; Superdad, tee hee.

    I’ve short-cutted Hope Ann to my desktop (my desktop already looks like “Where’s Waldo?”……..you’d GASP if you saw it!) and plan on viewing it regularly as little bubbles grows into the beautiful young woman she is destined to become………JUST LOOK AT HER MOMMY AND DADDY! Beauts!

    Love you guys;

    Hi Laura and Richard! Today I finally was able to visit Hope’s blog. Reading about her and seeing this beautiful child made me smile and forget about the stressful things that have been going on in my life lately. Thank you for sharing your precious Hope with all of us. She is a little ray of sunshine! Love, Patti
