Emily's Third Week

More pictures of Miss Emily. This is going to be a recurring theme.

Lots of Firsts in the First Two Weeks

First bath, first walk, first time in a "billy bed" . . . . Check out Emily's first two weeks home from the hospital. She's so cute!

Does this hat make my head look small?

Here we are preparing Emily for the big trip home. We are lucky that the hospital let us go since Emily's head is clearly not nearly big enough for her hat. We promised we'd keep an eye on that.

Also, just to embarrass Emily in the years to come, here is her old man introducing her.

It's a GIRL!!!

I'm trying to come up with something clever to say but more elegant words escape me.

The wonderful and amazing Emily Jane Russell was born on September 10th at 2:40pm tipping the scales at 6 lbs 5 oz.

Here are some pictures of Emily and some of our family carefully selected to show how beautiful my wife is even after giving birth. Click on the picture to see lots of other pictures.

Mother and baby are both doing very well. Father survived the ordeal with minimal bruising although he smells like a yak since he's wearing the same socks he was wearing 36 hours ago.

Thanks for all your love and support. Here's a bonus video of Emily for those who have taken the time to read this far.

John, Sara and Emily

PS So, did you win the baby pool?
