Elina Marie 9lbs 4 oz

Well it has been so long since we have updated. We have had a crazy few days. Elina Marie came into the world March 26th at 6:16am after a 3 1/2 hour labor. Thats right folks that was a quick entrance! Luckily we were planning a home birth, because we probably wouldn't have made it to the hospital. Everything looked good for the sweet lil one, but two hours after the birth, we noticed a dusky color in her face and labored breathing. She ended up being airlifted to Providence and we will be here a week. She is such a trooper, a strong lil one. She is nursing great, and is finally breathing great without extra oxygen. She is definitely on the mend.
We have felt so much love, prayers and support from family and friends during this time, and we sincerely appreciate it!

Meanwhile Eden is having a blast with both sets of Grandparents. She isn't quite sure what to think of her baby sister. We wish so much to be at home with our two girls, but since that has to wait a week we are so grateful to be near to our family that loves and dotes on Eden, and makes her feel so special during this unusual time.
