We spent some time in recovery and were in our room by lunchtime, settling in to life with this newest little bundle. Meeting a new child is instant captivation. Months of wondering if it could ever be possible, despite everyone's assurances, to love another child so much, vanished instantly. She had my whole heart.
I'll take a few posts to share all the visitors and the beautiful, sweet, innocence of the first few days on Earth, but for now, I want to introduce to you:
Eloise Ann Hardy
May 20, 2014
7 pounds, 12 ounces
19 inches long.
She is named for Robert's maternal grandmother (Louise Bratton) and for my mother (Mary Ann Davis).
Eloise means "healthy" and Ann means "gracious, merciful." We are finding already that her health is among God's greatest mercies to us.
Thanks Be To God.
