Meet Our New Granddaughter!

This is our Andrew with his precious baby girl, Beatrix. Isn't she the sweetest thing! (It looks like she has Tad and Klaus's red hair.) They called us at about 10:00 Monday night and said I should probably come over to stay with the other kids. When I got there, Alison was bustling around (through her contractions) getting everything ready to go. We were going to take Tad to our house and a friend was coming to stay with the twins. They were only at the hospital for about two hours, when out she came! No time for an epidural. I guess when you've had three babies already, you know what to do!

She came at just the right time too. Andrew didn't want her to come before he turned in his dissertation last Friday, but they wanted her to come before the 22nd when he does his defense. Boy, these kids have a lot going on! We were worn out just having Tad for two days:) Really he was so good and delightful to have around. Now he is back home and they are settling in. I'll be taking food over. No time for them to cook!!!
