Hello Baby!

If you follow My Baking Addiction on Facebook or Instagram, you may have already gotten a little glimpse of our sweet baby girl – Estelle Blais.

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.

EDITED_67_elleresizedElle was breech and due to my elevated blood pressure and the insane swelling that had settled on me from the waist down, my doctor decided to schedule a c-section 2 weeks early.

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.

elleanddaddyI 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.

How completely lovely that you wished to share with all of us during this most incredibly emotional time in your life. Take care and just remember, one day at a time. But most of all, remember each night ends and another day begins the rest of your life. I know it’s very “oh brother” but it’s so true. She is lovely and she began with her parents…………

My mom told me the same thing “you’ll see when you have your own kids” I’d roll my eyes at her everytime she said it. But as always, she was right. I truly believe there is no greater love than parents and their children. It’s the absolute best feeling I’ve ever had. Nothing better in the world. Enjoy your baby girl, she’ll grow up in a blink. Squeeze her tight and every single day tell her you love her.
Congratulations on your sweetest creation yet!
