Jason, Elisabeth & Ian are happy to welcome into the world Imogen Annabelle Haggard.
She was born June 11, 2011, at 5:40am. She weighed in at 7 lbs 2 oz and is 19.5 inches long.
Imogen is an English name and is pronounced Im-a-jen. It means “maiden” or “innocent”. Annabelle is German and means “beautiful” or “favored by God.”
Everyone so far who has heard the name Imogen (except Elysia, my fellow English Lit major) has said, “So how do you spell that?” We imagine, for this reason, Imogen will grow up to be quite precocious and particular about how her name is spelled and pronounced. We like that.
Labor and birth went smoothly. Quicker than with Ian, but more of the story to follow later.
Please pray that rest and breastfeeding go just as smoothly!
