Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

She fits right in..

The other day, Alex and I were goofing off with the camera on my phone. We were trying to get a picture of the 3 of us where everyone was looking. After several unsuccessful attempts, Alex wanted to take a silly picture. We took a few, had our fun and tried again for a nice group shot.

As we were looking through them, we came across this one. HILARIOUS!!! We knew that we were making faces but didn't know that Ellasyn decided to get in on the action.

She fits right in!
I will definitely be enlarging this and framing it!

Ellasyn is such an amazing, laid back baby who smiles all the time. Some say it is gas. I say no way should something so gross get the credit for causing something so beautiful. She must be talking with her angel friends & letting them know she loves it here. That has to be it...right? :)


Finally, a blog post, lol!
Finally, our baby girl made her much anticipated arrival.

Ellasyn Claire
Dec 21st @ 12:42 pm
weighing 6.13 & 20.5" in length

To say that we are completely in love is a total understatement! She is wonderful & such a blessing to our family.
We are so incredibly blessed!

This is where I will ramble & record some details I don't want to forget;
6:00 am: checked into the hospital at .1
7:30 am: water broken & pitocin started at a 2
8:30 am: epidural administered at a 3
8:45-11:00 pm: nap on and off, measured at a 4
12:00 pm: woke up to extreme pressure. Nurse Robin checked my dilation & I went from a 4 to a 10 in an hour. She begins to prep the bed & room and calls Dr. Yancey.
12:15 pm: Robin has me do a practice push. As I am pushing, she has Tripp take a "look" as the baby is crowning. She asks me to stop pushing so that Dr. Yancey can get there.
12:25: Dr. Yancey arrives and we start pushing. Tripp counts for me, a little too fast at first, lol.
12:42: After six rounds of pushing, Ellasyn was born. One. Of. Our. Greatest. Moments. Ever!!

Tripp & I were the only ones in the room as she was born. My friend Tami was there in the beginning and afterward & captured some amazing pictures for me. My brother Jay, his wife Amy & there two children brought Alex to the hospital and were in the waiting room as the baby was being born. My mom made it right after she was born.
