Never Fear, Gigi is Here!!!

We were released from the hospital Friday morning and arrived home at about 10 in the morning.  Matt and I settled in and started are life as a family of three. Once we had unpacked, fed Elle and put her down for a nap we were laying in bed together (supposed to be sleeping...Rule #1 Sleep when Baby Sleeps) talking about how nice it would be if Tricia could come visit.  We quickly decided it would have to happen so with help from Benny we tricked/convinced her to come visit.  She was booked and on a plane that same day.  I don't even know where to begin to thank her for her visit.  She was so helpful and we were so grateful to have her around.  It was so  much easier with a third set of hands and I was able to rest so much more than I would have been able to had she not come.  We went shopping and bought all kinds of great things for Baby Elle.  Not knowing the gender forced us to hold off on getting baby clothes until she was born, but we have quickly changed that.  Elle was the perfect little shopper, making me very excited for many more trips!!!

Matt and I also want to send a huge thank-you to both of our families and friends for all the love and generosity we have been blessed with.  All the coffees, magazines, meals, flowers, gifts  and love have not gone unnoticed.  We are so grateful for everyone of you and so happy that you all love our Little Elle as much as we do already!

We took Elle to the doctor today for her first check-up and they said she was perfect.  They apparently measured her wrong at the hospital and she is actually 19 1/4 inches long.  She left the hospital at 6 pounds 12 oz (which is a 10% loss and perfectly normal) but is already up to 6 pounds 14 oz so well on her way to being  a healthy baby girl!
