She's here!! And she couldn't be more perfect!
Miss Elsa Louise is having her first bath and her hearing test so I have a moment to write a quick post (with my phone) about our BabyBear, who decided that July 1st was to be her birthday.
This was my easiest labor and delivery yet and I'm still in shock that she came early. Sam and Julia are so sweet with her. I could watch them interact with their baby sister all day, bu of course that isn't very practical! I think it's going to be a good thing that we have four baby kittens to keep them distracted when I need to feed Elsa!
She was 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 19.5 inches long. If you saw Julia when she was born, Elsa is the spitting image of her big sister. I will post pictures from home as I have learned that messages I send via Twitter just don't make it through. I am savoring this time with just the two of us in between visitors as well as the incredible care of all the staff here.
Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
