World, Meet Elaine Grace

Change has arrived in the form of a bubbling baby girl, Elaine Grace. She came a little earlier than expected - May 16th instead of May 30th, but I guess that is why they are called 'Estimated Due Dates'. Because I have an acrobatic baby, she managed to turn a few somersalts while in utero and wrapped the umbilical cord around her neck, twice. As a result, she was a c-section baby and entered the world with a perfectly shaped crown. She weighed 6 pounds and 3 ounces when born and has already put on a few additonal ounces. Eating is a pasttime that she savors. She has both John and I completely wrapped around her long little fingers - she enjoys being held at night to sleep as any bed is simply too uncomfortable for her right now. She is so small and precious we indulge her.

So, welcome to the world, Miss Elaine, you have certainly changed our lives forever :-)
