Welcome Edie Jean!

day2Hooray Hooray she’s here! Elizabeth Jean Stanley. 8 lbs 5 oz, 21 inches long, strong and healthy as can be! Went into labor about midnight Friday night. She was born Saturday morning at 11:42am. I think I willed it into happening! It was Jared’s last day of work and I was ready to go with the long weekend ahead and nothing else on the agenda but birthing this baby girl. I’ll  share more details about the birth another time but wanted to give you a quick update!  I was really happy to have a vbac (that’s a vaginal birth after a c-section) and the recovery has been a dream, at least compared to Henry’s. Her full name is Elizabeth Jean Stanley, but we’ll call her Edie (eedee) Jean. She’s fifth generation Elizabeth after me, my mother, grandmother and my great great grandmother. Jared snapped this shot with his phone as we were getting ready to leave the hospital on Sunday afternoon. I love it. I’ve been sharing more pictures on instagram if  you’re curious you can follow me there. So happy, relieved, and excited to have her here safe and sound!

xoxo, from our family of four: Liz, Jared, Henry, and Edie Jean


Awww! Congratulations! Sweet face, great name! My big sister’s name is Elizabeth Jean. 🙂

Heartfelt congratulations to you four! I am so thrilled for this beautiful gift along your journey to grow your family. Welcome to the world, baby girl!

Congrats pretty mama and love that you (and Kate) aren’t scared to show off that post baby bump. So refreshing

Congrats! I love the name and you look wonderful and serene with your (very hip) post baby bump!

Edie is a little beauty!

She’s beautiful! Congratulations! I also love the name history and nickname. Edie Jean is such a timeless name.

Congratulations Stanley family! Liz you always look beautiful but you have never looked more gorgeous than in this photo. Having a girl in your arms makes you sparkle. So happy for you guys. Enjoy every happy moment! Hooray for your little miracle.

Congrats you guys. Enjoy this magical time. What a little personality, you can tell.

And yay VBAC! I can’t wait to ask you all about it 🙂

Congratulations! So happy to hear you had a safe delivery and are recovering smoothly. You look gorgeous, and of course, so does Edie!

Congratulations! We were due the same week, but my twins came six weeks early. Its funny because they just passed 8 lbs, which seems so huge to me now (they were just under 4 lbs at birth). You look amazing without makeup, by the way.

She’s beautiful! I’m the 3rd Elizabeth in my family line and I think Edie is the perfect nickname for Elizabeth. I’m Ella, my mother is Liza, and my grandmother was Beth. Congrats!! 🙂
