Great Great Grandma

Ellie met her Great Great Grandma Rowe for the first time. It's very exciting to have five generations of women all together at the same time.

The Proud Cousins

Ellie was very excited to meet three of her second cousins...Emmaline, Elizabeth, and Mary Catherine. Elizabeth was even thoughtful enough to share the baby holding duties, saying to Emmaline, "You can hold her feet!"

Just a Swingin'

Swinging has become one of Ellie's favorite pasttimes...unless she gets the hiccups, that is.

Our Little Angel

Isn't she just the most beautiful baby?!

Tuesday, September 12, 2006


Ellie has graduated from the sponge baths to the baby bath tub. She enjoyed this bath much more than the previous ones.


Ellie was wide awake when we laid her down on her new activity mat, but within seconds she was asleep.

No important milestones here. This is just a darn cute picture.

Splish, Splash...

Ellie's first bath! She didn't care for most of it, but she loved getting her head scrubbed.

The Gang's All Here

Ellie had lots of visitors in the hospital. Everyone had to come see the new arrival. She even got a special surprise with an appearance from her Uncle Andrew, all the way from Arizona! Ellie is looking forward to spending lots of time with all of her adoring fans.

Glow, Little Glow Worm...

In the nursery, Ellie was exposed to high levels of gamma radiation. She now has super strength and turns green when she's angry. Actually, she turns a little yellow, but that's from the jaundice, not because she's angry. She was slightly jaundice and had to stay in the Bili bed for most of the first couple days. Which was tough on Mom, Dad and all visitors because we couldn't hold her that often. She's doing much better now and is getting plenty of hold time.
