And Then There Were Three…

Our hearts are filled with love as we announce the birth of our daughter, Rooney Jane.

  • Birth date/time: March 2, 2012, at 9:48 a.m. (38 weeks, 4 days)
  • Weight: 8 lb., 8.2 oz
  • Length: 20¾ inches
  • Special characteristics: brown hair, beauty mark on her neck, chubby cheeks and wrinkles like a bulldog

Everyone is doing well. We can’t wait for you to meet her!

>>> Photos (and the birth story, of course) to come…for now, we’re all cuddling and getting to know each other.

Our little Roo was worth the wait.


P.S. Thanks to Linda for the beautiful illustration of our family!
