We are overjoyed to announce the arrival of Mari Beatrice, born on September 14, 2012 at 8:17 pm after 18 hours of labor. She weighs 7 lbs, 10 oz and is 20 inches long. Mom and Dad think she already looks like her big sister, except chubbier! Mari is a Norwegian name and a version of Mary. Beatrice was my paternal grandmother.
