And FINALLY! Without Further Ado...

Ellery Anne Elizabeth
Born May 13th, 2008 (her due date)
6lbs, 4 ounces
19.5 inches long

And in this picture she's yawning, not screaming, I swear :)

She's a perfect blend of husband and I both, though I see more of him in her, than of myself.

And here she is about 30 minutes ago, just after we walked in the house, for our first night at home.

Right now I'm operating on about 3 hours sleep in 3 days, so I'm going to feed her, then crawl into bed while husband watches her until the next feed.

For now, all I will say is she's perfection, a joy, a dream come true, all I've ever wanted, and the love of my life.

And I will be back soon with more of the story.

Love you all, sorry for the wait.

She is just precious and I knew it was a girl all along. I swear! **giggles**

I love her name. Ellery. Havne't heard it before and I just love it. It is beautiful, of course, just like her! How did you come up with it? But she will always be your "butterbean" ;)

My daughter's middle name is Anne.

Congrats to you both.

Gosh, this made me warm and fuzzy today! Babies are heaven sent, aren't they?
