Welcome Nieve

Nieve, the newest addition to the family

At 8:35pm, April 18th, Mom gave birth to Nieve, a beautiful baby girl. She is 7 lbs 8 oz (3.425 kg) and 20 inches (50.8cm) in length, healthy, has a full stock of dark hair and is quite cuddly.


Washing little Nieve

Mom was amazing throughout- when she finally started pushing it took less than twelve total pushes to get Nieve through the birth canal. We remarked at how small newborns were... we had acclimated to the size and speed of our much larger and more active two-year-old. As Ronan would say, Nieve is a, "little tiny one." We are delighted to welcome little her into our family and look forward to having her meet all of you soon!
