Quinn Sadie Hardwicke-Brown

On July 22 Quinn finally made an appearance - our 4th child's 4th child - our 20th grandchild, 8th granddaughter. By noon on the 23rd she was home, surrounded by her family and blissfully oblivious to the joy and excitement her birth caused. Sara tells a harrowing tale of pain and tears and fainting husband but to those of us on the outside looking in, it was a healthy pregnancy and easy birth, with the best result possible.

Quinn's appearance was a surprise to all of us - our family has a history of bald or blond babies. A few have been born with a light skiff of slightly darker than blond hair, but this little beauty has a full head of black hair, at least an inch long. Now, at the age of 5 days, we notice that her feather-soft black hair is looking like she's been to a beauty parlor and had her tips frosted. The black is turning to gold. It'll be interesting to watch the transition.

Her feet are long and wrinkly.

Quinn with big sister Elly, who is still ambivalent about her feelings for the baby, gingerly consented to have her picture taken close to her.
