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 :-)


  1. She is beautiful! Congratulations Annie & John!

  2. Welcome Elaine Grace! You are so beautiful!

    Congratulations to the new parents!

  3. What a perfect looking baby. She is so cute! Congratulations! As a mother of three, I know all too well how quickly this time will pass by, so be sure you savor every minute! Looking forward to seeing more updates on Elaine on your blog!!!!

  4. What a beauty! I have to say that John has been gushing about Miss Elaine to us on the bus, and we love it. :)

    My daughter was also an emergency c-section due to the cord wrapped around her neck. All turns out fine, though, and she will be 21 this November. Your little bundle will be just dandy, as well.

    Congratulations to your family.
