Back to Blogging

Silly me. I thought I would be so bored with a baby. One day I will get around to posting a very condensed version of Eli's birth experience. Jeff never did update this news: Eli ended up getting Jaundice and had to be under lights for the past three days. Today we were finally told he's free from the tanning sessions and we can hold him as we please. Eli's had a rocky start but everything is going super good now. So until further updates, here are some more pictures to satisfy your Eli cravings.
We can't tell my mom thanks enough for coming into town for a week to help us out. She's really helped us fix up our apartment and she's kept us well fed. She also keeps reminding me not to be such a paranoid first time mom.
The comb over.

Fresh out of the hospital.
One of the big reasons I liked the name Eli is because it is such a masculine name. There are so many boy names that are turning into girl names and I liked Eli because I don't see that turning into a girl name any time soon. We've had two appointments with the doctor and both times as they were calling us in they called him Ellie. Didn't see that one coming.

Kim's shirt is so perfect- she really is a champion. I am so glad everyone is doing well. Ellie is soo tan. He will for sure make all the other babies jealous with his tan. Glad to see him home. Love you guys!
