Penelope Marielle

Penelope was born June 5, 2017 at 12:48 a.m. in the birth pool that wa set up in her parents guest room. 

Her mother labored fearlessly, never giving up, ever surrendering to the process, regardless of how long it took.  And it took a while.

Once Penelope was born, she needed a bit of assistance to initiate her first breath but after that, she had a story to tell.  And tell it she did!  Loudly and with vigor!

Penelope weighed 9 lbs 13 oz. and measured 22 inches tall.  She is her parents 6th child and their 2nd HazelTree Baby.

Look at those glorious cheeks!!!
