Hangin' at the Hospital

Here's a picture taken of Ellie and her Daddy just 5 hours after she was born. That's not just a goofy face, Daddy really is that happy!

Wait for it...Wait for it... NOW!!

Our beautiful baby, Elise Katherine, is finally here! She held out a couple of days extra, but when she was ready, she was ready. Katie started having contractions at 9:30 PM and Ellie was born 7.5 hours later at 4:55 AM on 8/31. She was 7 lbs 15 oz and was 20 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great. It is worth noting that Jason did it all natural with no drugs.

Fit for a Princess

Here are a few pictures of the baby's room. Kate's mom made all the bedding and window treatments and did an amazing job! And yes, for those of you who didn't already know, we plan on calling the baby, Ellie.

Get in my belly!

And the countdown begins...Kate is 38 weeks now. She is due August 28. She's still feeling well and hopefully the baby will cooperate until she's ready to join us. Until then, outta my way!

Tailor, can you let these pants out a little?

We're at the New Melle Golf Course for Jason's grandparents' surprise 50th anniversary party. Kate is 29 weeks pregnant. She may not look too big yet, but just wait...

Bust Out the PINK!

These are a couple of shots from the 19 week ultrasound. This was also the day we got the fantastic news that we were having a girl...finally Kate was able to start shopping for baby clothes! It was amazing to see how much bigger the baby had grown from the first ultrasound.

The Tadpole has Landed

This is our first picture of our baby, at 8 weeks. That's a good lookin' kid, huh?

Intro Bloggo

This is Jason and Kate's IPO into the blogging world. This blog was mainly created so we could share upcoming baby news and pics, but you'll get a little bit of our lives as well. Check back often for additions and updates. We are still slow at it, but should improve.

By the way, this picture was taken in the Blue Mountains in Australia's Hunter Valley Region during our December '04 visit.
