Welcome Home Ella Eve Wylen!

Our big news is that on July 3, 2010, our baby girl, Ella Eve Wylen was born! She made a bit of a surprise entry into the world, as she wasn't due for 3 more weeks, but at Ema's 37 week appointment we found out that my amniotic fluid level was dangerously low, and I was admitted to the hospital immediately. After a sleepless night of monitoring the baby and being pumped with fluids, nothing much had changed, and so Ella was born a few hours later, at 11:40 a.m. She weighed 6 lb, 3 oz and was 19 inches long at birth, and had a full head of light brown hair and dark blue eyes. She looks like a teeny tiny version of Avi as a newborn, but Ema thinks she looks more like Abba. So far Ella is doing well at home, and we are grateful that Nana Cheryl was able to come out to Seattle right away to help take care of all of us, and that Aunt Daya was able to come for a visit as well. Saba and Savta will be here in just a few days, too!
