Res Completa: Elin Green

Not 8 hours after I insisted to Amy that I was sure I had another week to go, it became quite clear that I did not.  And 6 hours later, at 5:36am on Monday, October 20th, the day after her due date, just in time to start the work week, my dear baby girl was born.


Elin Green, 8 lbs, 13 oz, 19.5" long
(Elin, pronounced "EE-lin", is from my Swedish side; Green is a family name on Neill's side)

For the past two weeks, we've been spending our days cuddling (because how could we do anything else??)


And enjoying getting to know each other as a family of four.


We just love our little lamb.

She's beautiful and I love the name - enjoy all your snuggles! I'll be in your old neighborhood this weekend, too bad this trip wasn't a year or two earlier ;) Enjoy all the snuggles and think of knitting girly things (in addition to all D's manly ones!)
