New baby! // Favorite Things

Baby Ellie b and w

I’m thrilled to share that baby Ellie was born on Friday, November 7. She was 7lbs, 7 oz and 21.5”.  I can’t believe that she is a week old! We are thrilled that she is healthy, happy, mostly calm, snuggly, extraordinary beloved, and of course, the cutest baby you have ever seen.  :) I’m also glad the delivery is behind us and I am healing pretty well.

My big kids couldn’t be happier. I feel almost embarrassed at how much we all just adore her, but then I just think how lucky we all are, how grateful we are she is here, and how happy we ALL are that I’m no longer pregnant and sick. In fact, everyone’s biggest complaint seems to be that they don’t get enough time to hold Ellie. Its definitely a good problem to have.

Thanks for all of your well wishes, in the past and with her birth. I’m not sure if its relief, or hormones, or teetering on the brink of exhaustion, but I feel like our joy is complete.  I don’t know if I have ever felt that way before, so I’m just going to sit back and savor it.

Happy weekend, friends.

    She’s beautiful. We had two older children when our third was born. She is a senior in high school now and has been an only child at home for a number of years much to her delight. Prayers and thoughts to your newest addition and to your family.

    Congrats. She is amazing. I knew you made beautiful quilts but I hadn’t realised your skills extended to beautiful babies. Praying for peace for you all.

    Congratulations! Your little Ellie is so beautiful. So happy for all of you. I have to tell you too, that if I was there, I too would be demanding my fair share of snuggle time with her. Wow, there is just something about babies, especially when they have older brothers and sisters that you can watch and enjoy as they experience all the love and joy the comes with this precious little girl. I adore the picture of your son working on the burp cloth. We raised our grandsons and the oldest who is now 26 and in the military, still talks about sewing with grandma when he was younger…that time is so special to them. Thanks for sharing your joy with us. Hugzzzzz
