Meet Elle Rebecca, born December 7, 2008 at 3:39 p.m. She weighs 7 lbs. and 8.4 oz. and is 21 inches long. She has a head full of curly brown hair. And, most importantly, SHE’S A GIRL!
But let’s back up for a minute. Saturday night as Joe and Mel sat up with their three vomiting boys, Joe turned to Melissa and said, “Do not go into labor tonight.” At 5:30 a.m. her water broke. Everyone was asleep, so she let them get some rest until at 8:30 she knew it was time to high tail it to the hospital. And it wasn’t long before their first girl was born.
Joe and Melissa are ecstatic and exhausted. They sent me the picture above on my cellphone, but I am sure Melissa will be posting some more tomorrow.
