Esther Joy


Here are a few photos of our sweetheart:

just after she was born, being checked over by the midwife


snuggling with Mommy


after having her hair washed up a bit

We are all in love with our new baby! The girls are patiently trying to let Mommy and Baby rest, but are excited to hold the baby any chance they get. Lucy can't wait to pick out the clothes for Esther to wear and says "Hi, Baby!" every time she walks past her. Julia loves to come up and touch the baby's soft cheek. Ross is staying home from work and doing a wonderful job of taking care of us. I've been pretty sore and nursing is quite painful right now so Esther and I are snuggled in bed for the most part. I'm sure I won't be able to resist posting more pictures soon though!
