Ella is here!
Yesterday (Tuesday, September 6th), Stephanie started having really light contractions while at home with Jonathan. She’ll tell you all the birth story later, but we left the house around 7:30pm and by 9:42, Ella was born!
She is so cute and we just absolutely love her. We’re so excited to have her join our little family.
One benefit of going to a birth center was that we got to go home just a few hours after Ella was born! Everyone was checked out and given a clean bill of health, so we put Ella in the car seat and headed home.
It’s a tradition (meaning, we did it last time, so we thought we’d do it again) to take a picture in the car on the way home.
So, one thing that is different is we are home instead of at the hospital. We would love for you to come and visit us and meet Ella. Since we are here with Jonathan, we’d like to help him transition into being a big brother this morning.
We would love to have you visit us today between 3 and 7PM. That will give Jonathan time to adjust, take a nap, and be ready for visitors, as well as let us settle in a little.
We live close to Flamingo, just north of Sheridan Street. Call me and I will give you directions rather than posting my address online.
