elliot oliver.



elliot oliver nielson
8.17.12 - 5:33 am
8 pounds, 6 ounces.  20.5 inches

he's here you guys!  and guess what?  i wasn't induced.  i went into labor thursday night & after eight hours of labor {the last two of which had a gloriously working epidural} little elliot joined our family.  i'll write all the birth story details sometime hopefully soon.  all my time has been spent holding this sleepy little guy, nursing every two hours & changing a never ending rotation of elliot & parker diapers.

i have so much to write about {how parker is adjusting!  how i'm adjusting!  nursing!  loving two kiddos!  getting a baby to not wake up every hour on the hour all night long!} but every minute i write here {while the rest of my family is in bed & elliot sleeps on my lap} is a minute i should be sleeping... because who knows what i'm in store for tonight.

for now i will say we are absolutely head over heels in love with the newest member of our family & things are going really well.  a week has already passed in a blur & i know the months will start whizzing by too.  i'm trying to enjoy each moment of this little guy as a newborn & hold him every possibly second & soak it all in.  i'm finding myself more confident as a mother this time around & taking each moment as it comes.

and so far, it's been absolutely amazing.  we are so, so happy.  love this little guy.
