Miss Ella Grace Locker arrived right on her own time - August 27, 2007. Only 6 days past her estimated due date. We were blessed with her presence at 9:13pm. She weighed in at a perfect 11lb. 1oz. and 22.5" long. She was greeted by her own personal papparazzi when her daddy walked her from the delivery room to the nursery to be weighed in. We were slightly suprised at how big she was - we were expecting at least 8 - 9 lb. but never in our wildest dreams did we ever consider 10lbs. and certainly not 11, but she is a great cuddler and we wouldnt' have it any other way! She quickly became the talk of the hospital and was called "The Queen" by all the nurses. She broke the record for the doctor.
Pink is already her favorite color (as you can tell) and her favorite position is the "baby burrito"! She is very laid back and only let's you know when she absolutely needs something - other than that she is happiest being held and just looking around.
Although we enjoyed the attention from the wonderful nurses at the hospital we are now home and enjoying every minute! She has already taken her first nap in her crib and now she is content sleeping on the chest of her Ya-Ya (my mother).
