Elise Genevieve was born 9:09 pm March 20th. What a great way to welcome the first day of Spring! There is a lot going on (getting her Bilirubin numbers down, getting her to want to eat, etc) so I won't spend to much time on this. She had some respiratory trouble and a few other issues, but all seems to be getting better. Suffice it to say, I love my wife and my little girl! What an experience, what a tender time. I'm sure Yvonne will update this with more detail, but until then, here is a few pictures of our last few days. Thanks everyone for your love and support, advice, good will, and prayers! We need em, well, not Yvonne, but I know I do!
This is a few hours before baby arrival time. I just ate a JCW's bacon cheeseburger to bring good luck.

Just after my sister (who is a PCT) got to wash and check her out. Just a shout out to my awesome sister who helped more than she knows!
This is my sister Ellen holding her up for the family to see:
My little girl, yea, I love her! Click on the picture to check out her sweet hair. Daddy is proud.
