This is Elijah James Esser. He was born yesterday – June 17th – at 9:02am, weighing 7 lbs 4 oz. Mommy’s water broke around 2:30am and the rest happened so fast that it felt like a dream. Fortunately we made it to the hospital quickly, and had tons of help! We will be sharing Elijah’s birth story with you within the next few days. For now we are enjoying every moment of lying around, kissing, cuddling and admiring our beautiful baby boy! The past two days seem surreal to us, and although we are sleep deprived, we couldn’t be happier. We have lots to share with you, and all of that will be coming soon. Forgive us for making you wait for pictures… we are utterly in love with our little man, and therefore a little distracted!
Here are some pictures of Eli…
We are excited to tell you about the birth, the hospital, and our experiences over the last two days!
Thank you for all of the emails, texts, visits, messages, gifts, snacks, meals and love that we have received since yesterday.
All of you are greatly appreciated!
