It’s a girl!
Eloise Celeste arrived Thursday, July 26th at 4:44pm, rockin’ it out at 6 pounds even, 19.5 inches long and three weeks early. Ellie was just way too excited for her first photo op with mom and dad, apparently, to wait any longer. Her delivery started like a dream and ended like a nightmare, but we are all on the up-and-up now and excited to start settling in at home. Eloise has my eyes, Mike’s mouth and a flair for dramatic entrances, being classified as a preemie because she arrived just one day shy of 37 weeks and full term. Leave it to our little one to keep things interesting! We are absolutely overwhelmed by the love we feel for Ellie and couldn’t wait to share our daughter with you. Thanks to everyone for the amazing well-wishes, thoughts, support, prayers, great parenting tips, genuine excitement and love. We are so blessed.
