We welcomed our daughter, Simone Elise, last Thursday, June 11th, 2009, at 1:26pm. She came into the world a perfect 8 lbs 4 oz, 20 3/4 inches, and with a full head of hair! We cannot express the joy we are experiencing right now. Our hearts have opened to a place we had no idea existed. Here are just a few photos we took yesterday, rest assured there will be many more to come. :)







  • Congratulations guys! She’s GORGEOUS!

  • What wonderful news! Nicole and Brandon, we are so happy for you. The pics of you and her show such sweet precious love. Welcome, dear Simone!

  • She is stunning! What a small, coincidental world, Simone was born exactly one month before my Rowan’s birthday & weighing only 4 oz different from my two babes. Congratulations!

  • Gene and I are so happy for the both of you. She is beautiful and the pictures of you all are great. Love her a lot because before you know it she’ll be all grown up. It happens very fast. Best wishes to all of you. Congratulations!!!

  • Oh my goodness. Simone- what a beautiful little person, and a lovely name to match. The photo of Brandon’s face next to hers brought tears to my eyes. You articulated it so well when you said, “Our hearts have opened to a place we had no idea existed”. I resonate with those words, and it’s wonderful that you have found that same place :) Love you guys!
