My name is Evangeline Rachel Bjorgen

I came to be with Mommy and Daddy Friday, January 16th at 11:36am. I was feeling pretty ornery, so I decided to make them come in after me, but after I met them, I decided that being with them wasn’t so bad after all. I’m 6lbs 10ozs and 20 inches long. Here’s some of my first pictures:
