She's Here!!!

I know, most of you already know she's here...sorry it has taken us so long to put up an update of our beautiful Baby E. She has been keeping us so busy! Amazing that something that little can take up so much time and take up so much of our hearts.

I'll post the longer birth story later, for those of you that are interested. But here's the short version - our doctor decided to induce at our 41 week appointment. She sent us upstairs right away, which kind of freaked us out...we went out, got our bags and called our parents on our way back in. I started an IV and Pitocin at around 2:45. By 12:07 Baby E was born.
She weighed 7 lbs 15 oz and is 20 inches long. She passed her APGAR with flying colors and looked perfect right from the beginning. All of her grandparents made it before she arrived so they saw her very soon after.

We were moved to another room and Baby E went with Daddy for a bath. (We have pictures, but they are getting developed - we didn't take the digital camera to the doctor's appointment, oops!). She came back and slept in the room with Mommy and Daddy, who were exhausted, but thrilled!

So far, this is her favorite way to sleep - arms up, just like Daddy used to. This is her coming home outfit - isn't she precious?!
