I have decided to take these first few posts to summarize the last 3+ years since Michael and I started our adventure into parenthood. Why? Because I have a type A, all or nothing personality. ;) And because it will be nice to have all of our memories in one place.
I had originally intended to make this a brief summary, but once I started looking through all of our pictures it was way too hard to just pick a few! I still chose less than 1% of our pictures, so I'd say I did pretty good.
Introducing Clara Grace Ellingson...
20 week ultrasound when we found out we were having a GIRL!
with my cute, sweet hubby at 37 weeks
39 4/7 weeks - 2 days before birth
This was minutes after Clara was born at 11:05 pm December 15, 2010, the best moment of my life thus far. I'll never forget how there were about 10 people in the room and as soon as I started talking to her she looked right up at me. She recognized my voice! Thank you God for blessing us with Clara Grace!
