Ellie Sheppard

This poor blog has been negleted, but we are happy to announce that Ellie Sheppard was born on June 15th at 5:31pm. She weighed 6 lbs 14 oz. It was quite interesting to go into the hospital Monday afternoon knowing that we were going to be having a baby that day, instead of waiting at home for Lindsay to go into labor. We arrived and had to wait for about an extra hour since they had some emergency c-sections come up. Well they got Lindsay all prepped and away we went with the surgery. Everything went by so fast, we were in and out of the operating room in about 45 minutes. That night Hailey came by to see us and saw her little sister for the first time. At first she wanted to give her a kiss, and then she wanted me to hold her instead of holding the baby.

Well the next day Hailey came back and visited again, and this time all she wanted to do was hold and kiss Ellie, and show us where Ellie's eyes, ears, nose, toes, etc. were at. We were able to go home Thursday afternoon and have had a wonderful time with our family all home now.
