We would like to pass along some long overdue "Congratulations!" to our relatives and their newly larger families. To those babies born a while ago...talk to Sofia...she took her time and delayed this post.
Meghan (Kevin´s sister) and Justin Lockman welcomed Samuel Ewing Lockman into the wide world of Baltimore Maryland on October 11th 2007.

Hilary (April´s sister) and Nick Wizbenski welcomed their second child, Karina Autumn Wizbenski on February 11th, 2008. All reports are that big brother Eli is just as thrilled as his Grandma is.

Most recently, "Congratulations" go out to Marisela and David (Kevin´s cousin) Feige-Parraguez. Their first child, Sofia Marie, was born around 9:30pm on Thursday March 20th, 2008 (on the first day of spring!). She was born by Cesaerian after the induction didn´t work. Both parents and baby are doing fine (at least they were when she was born...they are probably sleep deprived just now:).

Our thoughts are with our family from afar....and in light of the number of dirty diapers available for changing in the family, afar doesn´t always seem so bad. No really...we do look forward to meeting all the new family members when we come back home. Congrats again to all!
