Welcome Eleanor Jane!

March 5, 2010

I’m reminded as I sit listening to my newborn daughter’s nose whistle and occasional snorting that the wait is over and that Ellie Jane has finally come to join us!  She’s just pushing 22 hours as I sit here writing.  Yet again I have one more reason to love Mavis Beacon for teaching me to type without looking at the screen so I can spend my gaze on looking at more worthwhile things. 🙂

For those who weren’t able to watch the Facebook play-by-play, let me sum up our labor experience simply by saying that it was very positive.  As usual, Kate was amazing through labor and delivery and just like Jude, Ellie was perfect through the whole delivery, though a little squirmier than we’d have liked toward the end (which prolonged the pushing somewhat).

Besides meeting a couple of the big names of her life to come, Ellie also got to meet her big brother for the first time last night.  It was great to watch him meet his new sister and give her some big [gentle] faceplant-like kisses on her cheek.  🙂  He’s going to be a great big brother–now I just have to teach him how to handle and shotgun to ward off his sister’s suitors…

In the mean time, welcome Ellie!  You are so precious and so beautiful!
