Meet baby Elijah Josías! Our newest edition to the family was born Monday afternoon, right on his due date, and we couldn’t be more smitten. The public hospital birth was smooth and quick, as baby E. arrived less than an hour after I checked in at the hospital, exactly as I’d hoped! Birth story coming soon, but in the meantime, here are the stats:

Congrats to you and your beautiful boy! You look great as well. Hope you are enjoying and getting the rest you need, too.
Thanks, Holli. I really feel like recovery is faster this time around, though I’d have never guessed, since he came so fast and required stitches. Praise God for a healthy baby & to be at home enjoying him as I recover. Hope you have a blessed week too!

congrats! that picture of baby e and your hubby nose to nose is precious!!
Thank you Blair! My mother-in-law had a blast shooting a handful of photos for us yesterday. That’s one of my favorites too. My husband is a super father & I love watching him play with the kids…so heartwarming!

Congrats! I’ve been pretty much stalking you on social media to see how things were going. So glad the birth went as you planned. He is beautiful! Can’t wait to see more of him and Big Sis together. So sweet 🙂
Summer is crazy about the baby! She likes to help burp him, diaper him, kisses him constantly. It is adorable!!
Congrats sweet friend! Hes adorable!!
Kerrie Williams says
Oh, beautiful family! Such a lovely little boy. Congratulations.
CONGRATS!! So exciting, and glad it went so smoothly! He looks adorable:)
Oh my goodness! What a cutie! Aww, he’s so tiny!! Congratulations! Your family is beautiful!
He was remarkably tiny, it’s true. Makes my little girl look huge even though she’s still not even 2 years old. I must say though, for the birthing process, smaller is probably my preference…healthy of course 😉
Congratulations, Jelli!!! I am over-the-moon excited for you and your beautiful, growing family! Elijah Josias is gorgeous, and fits right in with your lovely tribe… Honestly, rejoicing and elated for you!!! Much love, and will be praying for you during these next days. God bless you, beloved friend…xx
Thank you so much, Tehila! We definitely appreciate all the prayer support we can get. So glad you stopped by with such an encouraging message today.
Congrats!!! Such a cutie. Hooray for newborn sons. Enjoy your baby snuggles.
Congrats!!! I can’t believe you have the party up this week after having a little one on Monday… Girl you ROCK! Enjoy your new addition and thank you for hosting such a great link party every week!

Raven, to tell you the truth, I had another post scheduled for the mixer this week that I’d written waaay in advance and planned to use. Since baby was born & I just couldn’t resist sharing the news, I “had” to change it. Thanks for visiting.

Congratulations on your bundle of joy! =D What a blessing. Thank you for hosting this link party; my first time here. I love how you’ve titled it, and mark that the purpose is to build a community among moms. =D
Yvonne, I’d so happy you came to join us this week. It’s always a pleasure to meet new mamas among us. I hope you find a few new friends at the mixer and do come back again soon! Have a spectacular week.
He is perfect. Baby news is the absolute best kind of news… and a birth that goes just as planned is a bonus!
Congratulations to all of you,

Congrats my love!!! Sending lots of love and cuddles. How adorable! xoxo P
missed this while traveling, but congrats!!! only 5% of babies are born on their due date, so maybe he will have a knack for playing the lottery or something! not that I’m recommending that 😉
Congrats! You made it! Love his name 🙂 Looking forward to the story, too!
