Well, after lots of waiting (well, not really, but it seemed like lots of waiting) Eleanor Ruth Hammonds arrived on Sunday June 8th at 6:27 pm. She weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 53 centimeters long. Contractions started Friday night, so that part was long...however, everybody is doing really well. Eleanor is so precious and adorable and... I could go on, but I won't.
After spending 5 days at the Maternity Home (getting spoiled and waiting on) we came home Friday afternoon and Eleanor has settled in really well. She only wakes up once during the night. (Long may this continue!!!) We are still getting spoiled and waited on by Jill, who leaves Monday. Who will cook dinner then???
The plan is to upload photos and show Eleanor off, because she is just so cute, but because we have such a slow internet connection the photos aren't uploading - very frustrating!! However, I'll keep trying...
