Crib Note – Paul William Blazar

Paul William Blazar will be celebrating future cake dates on July 29th. The dark-haired, blue-eyed boy is the son of Lauren and Aaron Blazar of Mission Hills. Will, as his friends call him, was 20 inches long at birth and weighed six pounds, 13 ounces. This precious baby is the grandson of Elizabeth and Paul Uhlmann III of Mission Hills and Mary Hunstiger and William Blazar of Minneapolis, Minnesota. His doting great-grandfather is Henry W. Bloch of Mission Hills. Paul William is named for both of his grandfathers and for his late great-grandfather, Paul Uhlmann, Jr. His big sister is Sophie Uhlmann Blazar, who is four and one half years old. Sophie described the day he was born as the best day of her life!
