Elysse Jayne Beadle was born this afternoon just past 4:00. She is 19 inches and 5 pounds 8.5 ounces. She has quite a head of hair! Very dark hair, and plenty of it, both of which are somewhat unusual in our families.
She is a very good eater. She ate quite a bit between 5:00 and 7:00, and then again just before I left the hospital at 8:30 she decided to eat some more. Perhaps she knows she needs to catch up from not taking in enough over the past month.
Tonya undoubtedly will post more details later, but for now, here are a couple of pictures and a video.
