Celebrating Ellie

169a

This week, I got to hold tiny Ellie. Ellie is just a newborn but she has already accomplished a great feat: she tenaciously stayed put through her momma’s 16 weeks (!) of pre-term labor — including DAILY contractions. She did her family proud by not appearing until well into Week 39 … on Thanksgiving Day. Amazing. For all this and more, I present —

 /\/\/\/\/\/\/\   a few celebratory chevrons!   /\/\/\/\/\/\ 

It just seems appropriate.

[Hyacinth Quilt Designs was helpful to me in learning how to plan out the stripes for the chevrons.]

Welcome to God’s beautiful world, little Ellie! And congrats and love to Lori, Steve, and Aiden :).
