Elsa is 2 weeks old today.  She is such a sweetheart and a very good baby, letting her mom get some sleep!  

Hooray! I'm sleeping.

Lauren and Michael surprised us by driving home early from their summer in Florida.  They drove through the night to get back and see little Elsa.  What a great aunt and uncle!
Aunt Reghan is here for the week, visiting from NYC, it has been great having her around. Kayce & Taylor are also here visiting from LA.  We had a cookout together in the mountains last week. 

The hikers

My mom threw a birthday party for the grandkids while Kayce was here.  They had a ball.

Welcome Elsa

Elsa Helen Holt was born on August 11, 2009 at 8:34 pm.  I had gone to the doctor earlier in the day and came home disappointed that I was still pregnant but a couple hours after getting home I started having contractions.  We rushed Greta up to grandma and grandpa Holt's and headed for the hospital.  We got there sometime after 6 and she was born shortly after.  My doctor made it in time, he called it a "McBirth" - just a drive through.  I was definitely surprised to deliver an 8.13 pound baby.  I really don't know how she fit in me.  She is doing great and we are so happy to have her here.  Greta is excited to have her baby sister here.  She has been giving her kisses and soft love pats.  Thanks to our friends and families for all your love and support. 

Right after she made her entrance.
