Happy 0th Birthday Elise!

On March 9th at 10:16 PM Elise was born!

She was three weeks early and weighed 6 lbs, 7 oz.

She has reddish eyelashes, blond hair at the temples and brown hair in back, and dark blue eyes for now.

Here's the short story of how it all went down.

First: Mary was in labor(not pictured)

Second: Elise was born, warmed up, given some oxygen, wrapped in a blanket and put in Mary's arms.

Third: Elise was then washed and measured and given some medicine while we stayed in the hospital for a few days and then went home in her first car ride!
Now Mary feeds her and I lay around with her on my chest while she sleeps.

More pictures to follow sometime soon!
