It's a Girl!

I am thrilled to announce the birth of my new daughter, Elise Marie! She was born Friday night, October 10th at 10:24 pm. She was 8 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. I did give in and let the doctor induce labor, but everything went smoothly. We are both doing well and getting settled here at home.

Congratulations, she's adorable! I like the name Elise...it was on my last for a while, but we've decided to go with a different name. Too bad you don't live here anymore...our little girls could play together while we stamped!

Congratulations! She is so gorgeous! Elise is a beautiful name.Enjoy every moment! It passes by so quickly. My baby is a senior in high school this year! How did that happen??? It seems like she should still be this little and our junior at UNC should be a proud, toddler big brother.
I love your blog, btw. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us.
Hugs and prayers,
Janet

Julie,She is a beautiful little girl! I was fortunate as well when all 4 of my children were born (3 boys,1 girl..my girl is my 2nd child..she is 30 yrs old now ! LOL ) that they were just grogeous ! Everyone said so...not just me !
Anyway, your daughter brought back some wonderful memories for me. Thanks so much. ( Their dad died in 2002.)

Julie, she is beautiful!!! Congratulations and glad you are both doing well. I get your blog in Tennessee and enjoy your cards. For some reason I haven't been getting them this week and was anxious to find out about the baby. I went back on my last blog and found you.
