Elsie Eva Garner

She is finally here!  Elsie arrived Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 7:18am weighing in at 10 lbs 7 ounces and 23 inches long. I think she looks exactly like her dad but I'll let you judge for yourself.

Elsie in the hospital.

Here is Elsie just before we left the hospital the next day.

I am so glad that my beautiful mother was here to help out.  She is such a good birthing coach and a great support.  Thank you mom for taking care of us.  We miss you so much and wish your trip was longer!

Elsie went on her first walk around the neighborhood today.  Here she is all bundled up against the chilly fall wind.

The boys love their new baby sister.  When Campbell came into the room at the hospital he walked straight over to Elsie and held out his arms to hold her.  The boys kept repeating, "she's so cute".  I think they are going to be protective big brothers and hopefully she can mellow them out a little. 

She is so cute even when she is crying which actually isn't often.  It has only been three days but she is such a good baby.  We feels so blessed to have her in our family.
