Newborn Nora


Nora Joyce arrived safely on September 24, 2017. A little sister for Jacob. She weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 21 inches in length. She was 10 days late but made up for her tardiness with a very speedy birth, arriving after only 1 hour of labor. Happily Matt got Kelsey to the hospital with a few minutes to spare.

Ken and I traveled to BC, arriving September 12, and stayed until everyone was settled at home. We had a great time as Jacob, who is almost 2, was so much fun. We even managed to sneak in a quick trip to Vancouver to visit Christopher, Emily and our granddaughter Astrid, who is now 15 months old.
