Ellie Jo Crocker
7 lbs – 19 3/4 in
June 24 at 8:27 pm

This post was supposed to be just a summer update, but somebody had other plans. Ellie Jo heard Daddy’s voice at the airport on Wednesday night and by Thursday night she was comparing her long fingers and toes with his.

I spent the whole day Thursday convincing myself that she wasn’t coming two weeks early so the actual “labor” seemed to only last about 4 hours. Robin called the midwife around 5:30 and by the time she arrived it was time to set up the birthing pool. I have to say, water is wonderful! Ellie Jo was born into the water and it was the most amazing experience.

Our new little family has been enjoying getting to know each other and we look forward to the rest of the summer!

    Congratulations to you two; what a blessing that Robin made it home when he did! It’ll be a great story for her to tell about her birth when she’s older.
