We are so excited to announce that Eliana is here! She was born 6 days ahead of schedule (no complaints there!) on Monday August 4th. She entered the world...um, singing...at 6:48 pm. She weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz and was 19 inches long when you include her oh-so-stylish conehead. We've decided she looks like a pretty good mix of both of us. She has my nose and hands, while Eric passed on his feet and sleeping position. We'll see about all the rest as time passes. If you are interested in a (much) more detailed account of her birth, go here. Here are a couple of pictures for you to salivate over.
This is the dress my mom bought for Eliana to come home from the hospital in. Isn't it just precious? I know I'm supposed to sleep when she sleeps, but the most sublimely beautiful thing on this earth is my daughter's face. Especially after she's just eaten. I can't resist holding her and gazing at her.
