Hooray 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
