Baby Girl!

November 25th, 2009 by Amy Alphin Leave a reply »


So two weeks ago, our good friends Brendan and Ellie welcomed their new baby girl into the world. It was wonderful to be able to share that experience with them. Sheryl, Tom and I were anxiously waiting in the hospital waiting room, literally dancing with anticipation , (ok Tom didn’t dance). We also brought Indian food for Brendan, and later Ellie, as they hadn’t had much to eat since Ellie went into labor. Finally, we got the call that the baby had arrived, “it” was a girl, and we’d be able to cuddle her shortly.

After we were allowed in, the new baby (as she didn’t have a name yet), needed to be checked out to count fingers and toes, and get a bath for the first time! Brendan did the honors.


The paparazzi was definitely out in force, especially after Sheryl’s husband showed up with yet another camera. At least she will be a well documented baby! Thank you, Brendan and Ellie for sharing the birth of your beautiful daughter with us! We can’t wait to take her hiking :)
