Elinor is born!!!

Elinor was born in our home today at 5:14 PM.  She was 19.5" long and weighed 7 lbs 5 oz.  Maxine did amazing and thankfully the labor was very quick.  Apparently she wanted to be a summer baby.  Both mom and daughter are resting in bed now.  Elinor has been nursing like a champ and she has a very loud cry when she's angry but is otherwise very calm and sleepy.  She looks a lot like her mom's maternal grandmother so far but babies do tend to change a lot their first few days.  Welcome to the family Elinor!!!
