Announcing Audrey Elizabeth

It gives me great pleasure to announce the slightly early but very welcome arrival of Audrey Elizabeth Kuffner, who made her intentions known early this morning and officially entered the world at 1:13 PM CST on Sunday, February 11. Like her big sister Olivia, Audrey's debut came after a Friday visit to the doctor in which he said there was "no significant progress" towards her birth. Unlike her big sister Olivia, Audrey arrived before her due date, which had been the 14th.

She checked it at 7 pounds, 14.5 ounces (one ounce lighter than Olivia), and twenty inches in length. So far, she has proven to be mellow in temperament and ravenous of appetite, both of which mark has as cut from the same cloth as her big sister. Tiffany is doing well, and both mother and child will be at St. Joseph's Hospital until Tuesday. If you want to visit, send me a private note.

Enough of that. I know what you want - pictures. Here you are:

The new star of the household.

Audrey and Daddy.

Audrey, Mommy, and Daddy.

More pics to come later. As you might imagine, I'll be on a reduced-posting schedule for the immediate future. Thanks for all the kind thoughts, and I'll see you tomorrow.
