“I grow babies and food. Sometimes in the same proportions.” ~ Nell Timmer
Ted Timmer and Nell Orgozaly Timmer are thrilled to announce the birth of Graham Michael Still Water Timmer, born on July 26, weighing 7 pounds and 10 ounces.
Truly the baby of the family, Graham has four older siblings: Henry (9), Jasper (7), Emmett (5), and Mira (3). All five children were born at home with midwives, but Graham came so fast that the midwife didn’t arrive until 30 minutes after he did!
Nell Timmer believes they are the only family in the Garrison Union Free School District with five children. Ted Timmer is the youngest boy in a family of four boys and one girl.
Nell has two younger sisters and Graham was born on her youngest sister’s 28th birthday. Nell notes: “We grew up in New Jersey and we have a picture of her (all stretched out) next to a 21-inch-long zucchini from my dad’s garden, so I was trying to recreate that picture — but the squash borers got to my zucchini!”
