She weighed 8 lbs and 5 oz and was 21 inches long. Not the smallest baby I've had, but also not the largest either. Here's some shots of Ella and Daddy.
By the next day, a lot of her bruising and swelling had gone down. They brought her to us that morning with a precious little bow glued to her head. Who'd have ever thought we'd be so excited to be able to glue something to our baby's head?!
The boys were pretty excited to come and see her. Maddox liked the fact that she had a lot of dark hair like he did when he was born.
Ella and Grandma
Before we knew it, it was time to take our new daughter home. Here she is all strapped in for her first car ride. Having not gotten to leave the hospital the last two times with a baby sure makes you grateful for being able to take one home with you!
Here are a few images of Ella since we've brought her home. We think that she is the most beautiful daughter we've ever had. The first picture is Ella in an outfit that we bought right after Caden was born. We were sure the next one would probably be a girl and since we loved the outfit so much, we went ahead and bought it. It really felt good to get to use it!
She is such a wonderful little baby. She eats and sleeps so well. What a wonderful gift that the Lord has given us!!
