He’s here…

 

Elijah Mark

April 19,2010

11:37 a.m.

8 lbs. 9 oz.

21 inches

I can’t believe he’s here and almost a week old.  Today is our very first day all alone as a family of 4.  So far, we’re surviving quite well.  Both kids are even taking a nap right now… AT THE SAME TIME!  Very little spare time on my hands these days… but I did compile this slideshow.  I knew there would be too many pictures to upload each one.  We made a trip on the way home from the hospital to take his first photos with his cousin/BFF, EthanLaura came and took the most AMAZING newborn photos of our little man yesterday… I put the sneak peeks that she sent me at the end.

We are absolutely in LOVE!!!!  He is perfect and one of a kind.

I had visions of making a slideshow with that song....but chances are it isn't going to happen anytime soon. He's so precious. I can't decide if I am more jealous of the awesome photos Laura took or how great you look in the hospital pictures. You should see my hospital pics--I look ROUGH! I love the BFF pics of the boys. I'm so thankful they will grow up together. Can't wait to get them together again soon.

I'm pretty sure Lily stole the spotlight with that adoreable shirt and skirt at the hospital. She looked precious!

Those pics of the boys together are the sweetest thing. I think it's so neat that they will grow up so close!

That pic of Lily kissing Eli that your friend took was the sweetest thing. They look like angels!

I am so excited for you. And MAJORLY impressed that you have already made a slideshow. You are super woman!

good grief - you're an overachiever ;) the slide show is precious, just like Eli! I'm with Stephanie, that photo of Lily at the hospital is adorable! Love.
