Introducing Eleanor Grace


I don't have a lot of time to write, but I wanted to thank you all for your good wishes - and most of all for the support you've all given me through this journey. Nora is 11 days old and things are going well. I had a touch of the baby blues over the last few days because I felt so overwhelmed and trapped in the house, even though Andy was being wonderful. Then my mom arrived last night, and today she forced me to get up and shower and leave the house like a normal person, so I feel much better.

At the breastfeeding clinic we went to today, we learned that Nora has gained almost one full pound in the last week - she's now 7 lbs 7 oz, 15 oz higher than the weight she left the hospital at and 8 oz up from her birthweight. We've had a few hurdles with the breastfeeding, but it's getting better all the time, and I guess I'm doing something right!

OH! She is BEAUTIFUL!

I'm so glad to hear that things are going ok. It's rough in the beginning. Hang in there mama.

Beautiful, Beautiful!!!! Oh Congrats--I'm just so happy for you. She's so gorgeous!

I want to hear about when they placed her in your arms for the first time. That had to have been so amazing. (When you get a chance, of course)

She's positively adorable, NK! I can't believe all that dark hair... just right for bows. :)

Hang in there... the first couple of weeks can be rough, but you'll do great!

Thanks for updating us.

So beautiful! I've been waiting for pictures! I am so happy all is well and things are ironing themselves out. I couldn't be happier for you--and my husband, too. He asks everyday if there is any news. And love the name Nora--that of my m-in-law and niece. Can't wait to hear more. Congrats again!!
