SHE IS HERE!

HAZEL  JANIECE RIVADENEIRA
daughter of Sergio and Kira
born February 9, 2011
Sergio asked me if I knew "her" name...I said yes, Hazel. He asked if I knew her full name
yes, Hazel Rivadeneira...
He said no... I was a bit confused..
He said her name is Hazel Janiece Rivadeneira, I could only say, "really" are you sure?
I never thought of someone else being given my name...I was honored...I cried...
Her info board:
She came with a head full of dark curly hair. But that isn't much of a surprise
her mommy and daddy both have dark curly hair.
When Sergio was done holding her, he went over to Kirk and handed him his newest granddaughter.
I am so glad I got this picture.
So, what do you think?  Here she is only a few hours old.
and here Hazel is 24 hours old and home from the hospital.
Welcome Hazel to a family who already loves you.

Oh my gosh...she is so ADORABLE!!! I love all that long dark hair (my babies were all bald). Congratulations to you and Kira and Sergio. What an exciting event! I hope Kira and Sergio plan on coming to the reunion next year. Hazel and my Noah are less than 3 months apart...that'd be fun!
