we are beyond excited to introduce you to our daughter, nora eloise!
ellie was born on december 26th at 7:24 p.m. (after 30 hours of labor that began on christmas day!) she weighed 9 lbs 4 oz (!!!!) and was 21 inches long. we are so, so in love. we're going to spend some time getting to know our little family of three, but i'll swing by with photos & be back to posting soon!
all photos above were taken the morning we left the hospital. ellie asks that you please excuse her mom & dad, we hadn't showered (or slept...) & mom wearing dad's grey t-shirt was clearly a strong fashion choice. my favorite face is the one where i'm kissing her & she already knows how to go "oh mom!"
we're so grateful for all your love & encouragement on this journey.
much love, ryan, mary & ellie!
