We went to church this morning and Eleanor did great. She slept through church while a few close friends held her for a bit. Since I didn't want to be taking cell phone photos during worship, I don't have photos of her with everyone. (That just means that you all will have to come see us soon, get some more Eleanor snuggles and let me take your pic.) I did take this one after the service.
Rhonda & Eleanor
After church and a quick visit to Grandpa Whimpy's, this baby girl was worn out!
Everything is going great and we are loving every minute it. She couldn't be more mine if I had carried her myself. Drew & I are experiencing something quite unique, I think. Eleanor is our third child, but she is our only child. It's not a plan I would have written myself, but it is beautiful and we are grateful for every little detail of our lives as parents... from that first day with Alex in 2002 to Emma's birth in 2005 to this new chapter with Eleanor.
A few people have asked, so I will share... we are at the end of day 8 of the 10 day period that Birth Mom has to revoke consent. We aren't worried about it, but we will officially be in the clear Tuesday evening. Birth Mom has been heavy on my heart all week and I continue to lift her up in prayer. I probably will forever. She made me a mommy again and that's not something I could ever forget.
