It’s A Girl!

We are so excited to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Hazel Mae Olson. She was born on February 1st at 9:45 am. She weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces, was 20.5 inches long, and has a head full of dark hair!

Lillian came to the hospital to visit on Sunday night. She did great meeting Hazel, but towards the end of the visit she got pretty antsy and upset. I think she was just ready to go. We should not have waited to take our family photo until the end of the visit. Oh well, it’s a classic.

We were able to go home on Monday. Things have been going pretty good at home. Hazel is just eating and sleeping a lot. She’s sleeping 3-4 hour stretches at night, which is so nice!

Lillian was a little naughty for the first couple of days. Now she’s adjusting and acting like her normal little self. She mostly just ignores the baby, but every once in a while she’ll surprise us and do or say something super cute. One night Hazel was crying in her sleeper and Lillian ran over, started rocking her, and then bent down by her face and said, “Don’t worry baby, we help you.”
