Carly here. I’m Laury’s sister. Laury asked me to send out an update to everyone, letting you know that she has been overwhelmed with joy over all of your comments, messages, tweets and emails about her new addition! She is so thrilled to have such great readers and friends and really appreciates all of you! Ella is amazing, Laury has so many stories to tell you once she feels a bit better. Labor and delivery went beautifully and baby Ella is as healthy as can be and breast-feeding perfectly, however there were some complications later that night with Mom. I can assure you that everything is okay now, thankfully, and I’m sure Laury will share more details with you soon! Since then, it has made her recovery a little tough. Any energy she does have is put into the baby and focusing on getting rest so she can get back to her old self again!
Our mom and I visited Laury, Michael and Ella ( and Munchkin) tonight and everyone was glowing. I spent the whole night alternating between holding E and then posing her for beautiful pictures. This little girl is so photogenic and such a camera ham. She was so well-behaved! The best part was that my mom crocheted these AMAZING hats for E and put some great flowers on them which looked absolutely adorable and kept her head nice and warm! I know Ella loved them so much; she could not stop smiling! We plan on opening up an online store soon called ELLA’S HAT SHOP!
Now… to hold you over while you patiently wait for Laury to get back to 100%, ENJOY THE CUTENESS!!!!!!
Thank you so much for all of your kind words and thoughts for Laury and Ella! It means a lot to Laury and I know she can’t wait to get back to posting and share all of her stories and details about Ella! She feels terrible that she hasn’t been able to respond to each of you individually.
Happy Mother’s Day to my sister and to all the Mommys out there!
