Introducing Harper Willow Timmerman

Annie and I are proud to announce the arrival of our first child – Harper Willow Timmerman. She arrived on 1-6-09 at 8:33 PM after nearly 24 hours of labor. (Annie was a trooper, although I must admit, I did a heck of a job running down cups of ice chips and counting to ten.) Harper weighs in at a healthy 7lbs 10oz and measures 22 inches long.

In related news…my heart melted.

Congrats. I found someone else with the name Harper. On the Show Wizards of Waverly Place there is a girl named Harper. As Jamie Says, “Willow” obviously was from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Mrs. M says:

I forgot to say that I really love her name… are you channeling Harper Lee and hoping she will become a writer?
