THANKS!

Welcome to Earth!

25 July 2009

Great news travels fast in the email/facebook world, Justin sent 1 email to our parents to be forwarded to family... and then when we got home, we had about 20 new messages from all ya'll... It was a fun welcome home! But news is apparently a little slower in my blogging world. But anyway, guess who decided to make an early appearance...


This little girl of ours,
ETTA



And WOW is she fun!

I will write more when I have another hand free...
For now she was born Wednesday night, and weighted 8 lbs 5 oz and was a little over 20 inches long. She has already changed so much, but here are a few pics to keep you satisfied, until I get more than... 6 hours of sleep in a 36 hour period.

Here she is after happy hour in boob land.
Check out that double. And that inch long chocolate brown hair.
According to Grandma and Grandpa, Daddy has a miniature version of himself in his daughter.
But don't worry, Mommy gave her a tiny momento of herself, the space between her first two toes... a very useful feature, I might add!
Our first photo session after her bath.

Nap time with mommy this morning. It is hard for mommy to sleep when she just wants to look at the little faces this princess makes while she sleeps.

Daddy time at the hospital, and Mommy taking the little present home from the hospital.
Flowers from G and G and Justin's brothers and sisters.

Getting a shot with eyes open is not easy quite yet. They are really only open from 12:00 am to 5:00 am.... and the camera crews aren't around.
The thinker.
More to come. . .

Hooray!! Congrats! I was just thinking about you and hoping she had come. I love all that hair! Hope the recovery is going well.

She could not be any more gorgeous!! I am thrilled to hear the news and seriously - how can you close your eyes and sleep with that cute baby to look at!! All our best!! And PS to Justin - Shawn is speaking at a conference in Amsterdam in Sept. and I get to tag along!! I am so excited to have my own personal tour guide, everyone I ever met at a mission reunion told not of the great spiritual experiences with Elder DuBravac, but of his famous P-Days!

A Tale of Two July 25, 2009 at 8:02 PM  

YAY! I was so excited when I heard she was here. Congrats on the baby bum you now have to pat over your shoulder.

InkMom July 25, 2009 at 10:20 PM  

I was gonna say "Yay!" too but MommyJ beat me to it. We have problems like that a lot because we share a brain. (My half is bigger.)

Anyway -- happiness! And please take naps whenever you can. On my behalf.

So excited for you to finally have your little one here . . . she's beautiful. And you're right -- the double is impressive!

Rice Family July 25, 2009 at 11:14 PM  

Congratulations! We are SO excited for you. Your sweet little angel is here!

kmetzsch007 July 26, 2009 at 12:01 AM  

Congrats you two, she's a doll and I just wish I could hold her. I agree she looks a lot like Justin but things can change in a blink of an eye.
can't wait to see all the blogs to come.
Shirley and fam.

Awww! She is such a cutie! I love all of that hair! I don't know how I missed it on FB, but Congrats nonetheless--even if it is a little bit belated! Just enjoy that sweet little baby while you can, they grow so fast (not like that's a news flash, I'm sure).

What a little miracle!! She's absolutely perfect and looks like she's right on time, not early! I can't wait to hear all the details as well as the fun surprises as you get to know your beautiful daughter.
