my plans for a lengthy pregnancy were dashed recently; however, i have won the title of best father's-day-present-giver as a result.
violet jane rainey-ellis was born on sunday 6/21/09 at 12:10 am, just one day shy of her due date. she weighed in at a surprising 8 lbs 10.6 oz and is 19.5 inches long.
i know i promised some i would pinch the internet a little to let them know we were on our way to the hospital; but, there was a turning point saturday evening when my denial of impending childbirth was quickly overshadowed by violet's readiness to make an appearance. and i didn't want her grand entrance to happen on the living room floor.
we think she's pretty cute and already has a nice repertoire of faces and noises. she sleeps alot.
oliver hasn't quite figured out what's going on yet.
gory details to follow...
