Elora is here!

At 3:20am on July 16th 2012, Elora Rose Jarrett celebrated her birthday! She was born at a healthy 6lb11oz, 20 1/2 inches.

That's 3kg in metric...

She did so well in the birth, crying almost immediately after her escape, and Apgar scores of 8 and 9. She is in perfect health, doing everything a baby should do - no problem with feeding, and pooping to make Daddy proud.

Bathtime is funtime.

Mommy is very happy to have her baby out.

She's been such a trooper in her first few days. She hasn't complained about the various visitors holding her, slept like a baby (heh, see what I did there?) during the epic five minute car ride home, and will sleep for hours at a go... at least during the daytime.

Many thanks to Grandma Judy, who came up from California by train to help us; without your support it would have been a much harder few days. Also much thanks to Megan for coming up in the middle of the night to help us through this delivery.
