Joel Andersen Leuschen entered the world on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, in the afternoon. He weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20 inches long at birth. He is just perfect!

Grandma and Grandpa Hinze arrived in Washington, D.C., to help his parents and big brother, J.B., with all the great new changes that come along with a new baby in the house!

J.B. loves his new little brother, but it takes some getting used to. Grandpa Hinze reports J.B. likes to poke his little brother in the eye!

While in DC, J.B. got a little spoiling from Grandpa Hinze.

Grandma enjoyed her time with JB and baby Joel as well. She also prepared freezer meals and was happy to be in D.C. during the cherry blossom time!

After a week, it was time for Grandma and Grandpa to head back to Holdrege. Hope to see Janelle, Joel, JB and James again real soon!
