Introducing our baby girl!

“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”

We are SO excited to introduce our baby girl!!! Welcome to our family sweet
Havilah Grace Kauffman: 

9 lbs 8 oz. 
21 inches 
Dark wavy hair. The cutest neck rolls. Favoring different features of us all. 
She began to let me know she was on her way a little after midnight last night. By 6:22 am she was here, transforming my heart just by nestling into my arms. And she came before the snow. Oh bless her for that. Her brothers just met her and adore her already. We are so beyond grateful. 

About her name: 
We absolutely love her name. It is mentioned in Genesis as a land rich in gold, and is Hebrew in origin. To me, it just sounds feminine and soft and gentle and beautiful. I love to say it, I love to hear it. We call her Havi for short. Jaden calls her Lala. Shaun chose Grace as her middle name, and I love the classic, beautiful, timeless feel it gives to her name, not to mention that the meaning of grace is pretty spectacular in itself. 
So the complete meaning is golden eloquence or beauty of form, kindness, mercy or favor. 

Sweet Havilah Grace we are SO glad you are here!!!!! 


  1. Congratulations, Jessi. What a beautiful and wonderful blessing.

  2. Oh you all look so precious! Love to you all and praises to God for this sweet little girl!! Congratulations!
