She's a Keeper!

Just wanted to post a few first glimpses of the newest addition to the Blau Crew. Chapel was born yesterday (April 26th) at 5:06 PM (our only child to venture out while the sun was still in the sky). She was also our largest newborn, weighing in at 7lbs-15oz and stretching out to 19 3/4 inches.

I think she has already won all of our hearts (even an outnumbered and previously skeptical big brother). Both Mom and Baby are doing great. We are excited to have Chapel in our family.






I assure you, there will be many, many photos of this little one to come (mom just got a new camera and this one can't run yet).

Y'all, have a great day
-Proud Papa

How beautiful and I know the kids are loving every minute of being a big sis or big brother. They are getting big enough to help too. That is even more fun. Take care of you. Love Pat

She is so cute. You have quite the family now! You are way ahead of us. So glad she waited until you got your basement project finished. I love it. I guess that I need to come back to visit again to see her and your new basement!!! Good luck with everything.
