Wow. What a week you guys. What a week.

Let me introduce you to baby Elle, born June 12th at 8:17pm.


She was 6lbs, 3oz and 20" long. I'm sorry to have kept you waiting on the blog for the update.


Each day I tell myself I am going to post pictures and share my thoughts about this wild ride (that's new to me) called parenthood. And as each day passes I realize about the best I can do is take care of baby Elle, sleep for an hour here and there, and tweet to stay in touch with folks when I need a minute to wind down (it's handy because it's 140 characters.. very, very speedy for this mom-on-the-go).

Baby Elle is a wonderful little gem and I'm loving every last second with her. I love snuggling her, taking way too many videos and pictures of her, and just getting to know her. My husband has been a rock, can change a diaper about 5 times faster than me, and goes out of his way to make sure we're both taken care of. Man. I'm a mom and he's a dad. It's pretty surreal, to be honest.

I'm heading downtown here in about 40 minutes to meet my geek idol Wil Wheaton who is on Live @ 7 tonite. The husband, baby Elle and I are all going. It's our first real outing and a good test of what it takes to get out of the house with a baby.

Then later tonite, the husband and I have a special one week birthday party we're having at exactly 8:17pm. Just him, me, and baby Elle.

Happy birthday my littlest weasel bean. Mama is in love.
