Esther's First Bath

Esther's umbilical cord fell off yesterday and today she is one week old! 
To celebrate we decided to give her her first bath today:

 She was very calm and accepting of the warm water and whole "bath thing" until Daddy started washing her...
She didn't like that part...

She forgot all about the whole thing after we wrapped her up in her ducky towel and put her in the sun. She liked that part!

She's Arrived!

Esther Jane Pringle was born February 7th 11:31 pm (half an hour before her due-date) 7lbs 12 oz

She's beautiful! (I'm totally not bias because my husband agrees with me!)

Her middle name is Jane for three reasons:
1. My husband's middle name is John and Jane is the female version of the name.
2. It means "God is gracious."
3. Jane Austen, Jane Eyre... need I say more? The writer/reader in me could not resist!
