Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh

Haleigh was glad to see me when I arrived on Tuesday evening. Little did she know that the next day she would have a baby sister, and her life would be changed forever. For the better, of course.

Darci and Andrew posed for me for a tummy shot.

Haleigh got to spend a little time with her mommy before Ella's arrival.

She shared some kisses with Daddy.

And did some tricks.

She showed off her big sister crown... for a few minutes, at least.

And she shared it with Shelly when she stopped by with a Jimmy Johns delivery for Andrew.

Haleigh thought it was so funny to see Shelly wearing her crown.

Daddy shot some video, and before long,

Baby Ella was here!

 Don't cry, baby.

Time to get weighed.

7 pounds, 14 ounces.

Grandpa Charley introduces Haleigh to her baby sister.

Grandma Leslie shares the good news.

Darci, looking like she's just been for a walk on the beach. Seriously, how can she look that good?

Haleigh is wondering exactly what has happened here?

Darci and Baby Ella share Kangaroo Care skin to skin bonding time for the first hour after birth.

Haleigh relaxes in her stroller.

She's not quite sure what's going on here.

Grandma Leslie shows Haleigh the baby.

Haleigh sure has some funny expressions. Is that what you think of your new sister?

Baby Ella made her presence known.

Time to get her tiny footprints.

Look at those black toes!

Daddy and Haleigh watch the nurse get Ella all wrapped up.

Grandma Leslie and Ella Kathryn.

Daddy and his girls.

Haleigh shares some kisses.

Time to move upstairs.

A stop to drop off Ella in the nursery.

Grandpa and Grandma with sweet baby Ella.

Haleigh gets a little Mommy time.

Kisses for Mommy.

Grandpa Jim and Ella.

Granny and Grandpa and Ella.

Daddy shows Haleigh how to give Ella a kiss.

Sweet kisses for my baby sister.
Welcome to the world, Ella Kathryn. We are blessed.
