Earlier this month the bigger cousins gathered to celebrate and await the newest's homecoming:
Oh my. They are a silly bunch. You have no idea what you're in for Miss Hazel Alice. Check those toes! And she's already sporting the Hazelnut Hat I knit for her! Lookin' good, baby girl!
Big sister, Celia, is no longer our littlest cousin. Oh, no. In fact...
She listened mighty closely as Papa Jerry told her about all the things she needed to teach Hazel that only a Big Sister can.
One of the happiest things in life is just... life! Congratulations to Mike and Lael and Celia. We just love our new, little Hazel!
