We Didn't Name Her Snake


As much as Jack tried to persuade us to go with Snake (at least for a middle name), we opted for Elise Katherine instead. Elise made her entrance Saturday, January 3rd at 1:34 pm. She weighed 8 pounds, 11 ounces and was 22 inches long. She looks very much like her big brothers.

Labor was quick and uneventful, just the way you'd want it. I checked in at 7:30, was hooked up to pitosin by 8:30, five hours later I pushed three times and Elise was here.

Congrats Beckie and Sean (and Jack and Wesley too!) Elise is beautiful, and I think she'll appreciate that you didn't name her snake! :)

Haven't checked out your blog in a while, I love the picture of Elise as well as the fall pictures in the leaves. Hope all is well!
