Eliza Live!

I still haven't had a chance to get Eliza's entire birth story down, but I thought I'd share this video of Eliza from her second day of life.

Btw - thank you sooo much for all the sweet comments! We also think our girl is pretty darn beautiful, but we might be biased :) We are so in love with her; it is overwhelmingly powerful. Things are going great so far, I think. Eliza is a really good nurser (yay!) and we've been able to get some 3 hour stretches of sleep in between feedings a few times, which feels great to mom and dad! Trying our best to follow the "when she sleeps, you sleep!" motto... well, we try. She is just so cute to look at when she sleeps, we don't want to close our eyes! She is currently sleeping peacefully against my chest in the Baby K'Tan. Wearing her brings tear to my eyes. I've been waiting so long for this (and every other, for that matter) moment.

Have I mentioned how in love I am? Oh, maybe I have...

What an awesome video- I am so glad that Eliza is finally here and a part of your family. Also please don't mind this totally off-topic comment but your nails look great! Obviously Eliza had my full attention for the video but I couldn't help but notice how good your nails look:)

Aaawww, I love those newborn sounds, can you believe I'd almost forgotten them already? She is such a little darling, I understand why you're so in love with her! :-)
P.S. I second what Ash said - I thought, wow, whe's just had a baby and her nails look fantastic! LOL!

You are so blessed to have such a beautiful daughter. And her sneeze! how adorable. I cannot believe how moved I am by watching your video. =) Congratulations Ella!!
