The Birth of Hazel Belle Ribera

On December 20, 2011, Hazel Belle Ribera was born!


We had another great home birth with our wonderful midwives. Jessica was amazing, to say the least.

Snuggling with Dad

Hazel is a great little girl, and so snuggly. At 7lbs 5oz and 21.25", she's the lightest and longest of the bunch. She takes after her mother in that way.


I won't write quite so much as I did for Ivo's birth, but not because the experience was lesser. Labor was longer and less obvious this time, but we had good friends and a warm fire to keep us company.

Meeting her brothers

The boys both love her, and love to hold her. They're so tender and sweet together; we feel really blessed.
