i promise josh isn’t choking our baby in that first photo although it might look like it. that’s just some fancy burping hold they showed us at the hospital (along with things like ‘how to hold a newborn’ which i needed major help with.) i just die over eleanor’s chubby cheeks as she is being burped. they are precious.
a lot of you have been asking a few similar questions so i thought i’d just answer some of them here…
we didn’t give eleanor a middle name. she just has a first and last name. we like it a lot.
i bought eleanor’s cute bows and flowers in her hair from lou&lee on etsy. i think they’re the perfect size for newborns.
i mentioned how much i love knowing that eleanor is sealed to josh and me forever in this post. many of you commented and emailed asking what that meant. it means i know that God has a plan for us, his children, and through that plan, families can be together forever. i find great comfort in that.
anyway, i wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words and love expressed here as we welcomed our eleanor into the world this past week. i really love the blogging community and all the people i have met here who are so genuine, giving and supportive. so thank you.
