Introducing Ellie

  1. Jul 23, 2009 #1
    Eleanor Frances (aka. "Ellie") arrived Sunday July 19 at 7:22 PM, weighing 7 pounds 12 ounces, and measuring 19 1/2 inches long.

    She's astonishingly good, but I think I need to go change a diaper.

    Here's some pics I was attaching before the discovery. (Note: my spouse will want to make the disclaimer that we were NOT asked about the glued-on pink bow):

    A big "welcome" to Ellie. Does she have a PF user-name picked out?

    A big congrats, physics "mom" phd...feels a bit odd calling you a girl now, haha. How are you feeling?

    And to your hubby: a man becomes a father when he has a son, but when he has a daughter, he becomes a daddy...congrats!

    Anyhow, congrats. She's pretty cute for a baby. Most of the ones that I've seen were all red and wrinkly.

    Yes, she is good. That won't last, but in the meantime, enjoy. Congratulations.

    Congrats! She's a cutie.


    Physics Baby PF-BLOG is a good idea.

    Edited my original post to correct the weight... it was hard to type with one hand when Ellie was being held in my right arm (especially since I'm not a leftie)!

    Eleanor is a beautiful name, hopefully she will follow in her mother's foot steps.

    Welcome to the world, Eleanor.

    Congratulations to you and your family, physics girl phd. She's absolutely gorgeous and wonderfully strong looking. You are all very, very lucky to have each other.

    (Moonbear, I'll guess and say that the bow could maybe how they differentiate male and female babies on the ward. Although to what end, I don't know. But I've seen pink and blue jammies and pink and blue headbands and pink and blue blankets. Or, I could be totally wrong.)

    Yes, I could understand having pink and blue blankets, though, I'm not sure why they need to differentiate the boys from girls in the ward since it's far more important to know which baby belongs to which mom, and you'd know the sex of the baby as soon as you're doing a diaper change. But, it was more the comment that they "glued" the bow to her head that puzzled me. Maybe Physics Girl was just exaggerating on that point, and it was just clipped into her hair (though, makes me wonder...did the boys have blue bows? :rofl:)

    How perfect and sweet! Welcome to the world, Miss Ellie. I hope your life will bring you great happiness and many opportunities to do grand things, as well as many little good things.

    Oh yeah -- and that bow's STILL stuck on there. Babies aren't supposed to really get washed except every several days since they have such delicate skin, so Ellie's probably going to get her first home bath tomorrow or Saturday. (And note: although they say new babies are sweet smelling... as beautiful as I do think Ellie is, I also think she's a bit stinky... 7 poops today alone, and the milk GAS! I guess that means she''s getting well fed though!)
