Evelyn Ingrid has arrived!

Paul and I are so blessed to welcome our healthy daughter into this world! She was born 5/5/08 and was 6 pounds 9 ounces, 19 inches long. After a brief stint at DeVos Children's Hospital, our family arrived at home on 5/8/08.

Emma was interested in Evie right away and still sniffs her like crazy. She also enjoys licking her hands.... mmmmm.... milk! Lucy isn't really all that interested as she realizes how dethroned she has become! These two were kicked to the curb so quickly. We try to make sure we spend lots of time with them when Evie is sleeping.

5/14/08 Aunt Mary, Uncle John and Grandma Mixa visited us. We had a wonderful day visiting and Evie was so good! She mostly slept except when we sat down to eat dinner! Mary and John brought us wonderful coffee cake, lasagna and salad and Grandma Mixa brought spinach cake... yummmmmmm!

This past weekend Evie, GoGo, and I stayed at the cottage as Paul and our nephew Johnathon finished the upstairs remodel and carpet was put in. Although the weather was cold, we took a long walk on the pier and saw many, many swans in the channel and Muskegon Lake. Evie slept most of the time during her first stroller ride.
