First Time Here?

March 4th, 2006

Hello everyone! We recently sent out a large batch of birth announcements. Along with the obligatory cute baby picture and birth information, we also included an invitation to our little corner of the Internet. So many of you are probably visiting this page for the first time. Welcome!

Let me give you the lowdown. We decided that this would be the best way to keep everyone up to date on Eleanor. And, equally important, this page serves as a repository of all our baby pictures. You can always access them (and other various galleries) by clicking on Pictures over on the right.

I actually created this blog on the day we found out that Tara was pregnant. So you can really start from the beginning if you go back far enough in the archives. My posts between then and Ellie’s birth were somewhat erratic, and there wasn’t much baby-related topics to talk about… but at least I tried to get something online. Well now Eleanor is slightly over one month old, and thus I have had lots to talk about. For the full blow-by-blow account of our lives since her birth, go back and read the blog. But I will give a quick overview here:

  • Tara was in labor for 16 heroic hours.
  • Eleanor was born January 31st at 11:40pm, weighing 8lbs 5oz.
  • Eleanor and Tara both recovered quite well and were released from the hospital after 2 days.
  • Eleanor loves to snuggle and won’t sleep if she isn’t right next to us.
  • Eleanor is quite mellow most of the time and doesn’t mind meeting new people.
  • Eleanor is becoming very observant, spending a lot of her time examining things around her.
  • Eleanor hates taking baths, but is getting used to it.
  • Eleanor’s eyes are blue/grey, but this may change.
  • Eleanor is exceedingly cute.
  • Eleanor’s parents (and grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, etc) love her very, very much.

That about covers it. I hope you find this website useful. It’s certainly been fun to document Ellie’s adventures so far. Keep coming back to see how she grows! For now, click here to go back to the main page.

    Sounds a lot like my youngest – the loves to snuggle and very observant parts.


    Adventure is a great way to look at it. Trust me, from now on your life will never be dull … it’ll be a lot of things … but dull will never be one of them. ;-)
