BIG Congratulations to Uncle Severin and Aunt Colleen who welcomed Carolyn Jean Hanou at 12 noon on Wednesday, April 24th. Though the Colorado Kerschens weren't able to be in Maryland for her arrival, Grandma and Opa Hanou were! And Casey, Rob & Keira almost were - they missed Carolyn's arrival by 4 days. Carolyn took her time getting here. Poor Colleen started feeling contractions around midnight Monday night. You can't tell by looking at the proud new parents, but Severin and Colleen slept very little in the 35 hours it took for Carolyn to make her debut!
We love the family name - Carolyn was my grandma's name (Carolyn Stockover Lerch ) and Jean is Colleen's mother's name.
|Carolyn's deep blue eyes are striking. She is so alert and only 3 days old in this picture!|
