Kristin started feeling contractions around 9pm Tuesday night; we were at the movies, trying to squeeze in one last date night before the baby’s arrival!  We cut our date short and headed to the hospital (Anyone know how The Avengers ends?  I think that it’s safe to assume that everything turned out okay.).  After a few tiring but trouble-free hours, Kristin gave birth to a healthy baby girl: Joy (Greek: Χαρά) Elise.  Joy made her presence official at 4:10am (Wednesday, May 9th), weighing in at 3.59 kilos (7.9lbs).  After a bit of rest this morning, both Kristin and baby are doing great!  Thanks for your love and prayers!

  3. Both Mom & Baby look beautiful!! Congrats to the big sisters! Sorry, Brett, I haven’t seen The Avengers, but once you’re back in the U.S. I’d be happy to watch the girls so you can take Kristin on another date night! Big hugs to you all!
