Cali Anne Briggs

Hi family and friends!

It's time for our semiannual update (hopefully we get these coming a little faster). This one was prompted by the birth of our first baby girl, Cali Anne... named after California and our time here at Cal, and Anne after both of our baby sisters. We are so happy to add a girl to the family. At birth, 6:49 am August 22, she was a healthy 8 lbs 8 oz, 21 1/4 inches long. There was a brief complication, as we waited for her blood platelet count to rise, but she made her platelets really fast and avoided a blood transfusion and a long stay in the NICU. Everyone came home on Friday and we are enjoying crafting a new schedule for these kids. The boys have been very sweet with Cali so far.

We may add some more updates later, but for now I'll get this up with some pictures.
