I totally had every intention of introducing you to Elle in the days following her arrival, but I honestly didn’t want to take my eyes off of her. And as it turns out, recovering from a c-section and then a tooth infection 3 days after giving birth is well – for the birds.
Elle made her appearance on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 9:24AM weighing in at 8 pounds 7 ounces and a whopping 22.5 inches long.
She’s perfection and it’s hard for Eric and I to imagine our lives before her.
In the days before Elle’s birth, my mom (Granny) tried to explain the emotion and amount of love that parents experience after having a child, but she stopped short, paused and simply said that it’s indescribable and we couldn’t agree more.
I want to thank those you that have reached out to say congratulations through social media and email. We’re soaking it all in – every single sleepless second and couldn’t be happier or more in love with our baby girl.
