7 pounds and 8 ounces, 19 3/4 inches long...

Elliette Julie Upton

It was a bit of a rough one--the initial cesarean went just fine, but Shawn continued bleeding too long. This meant a second trip to the operating room and a redo of her inner sutures, but it's all good now. :-)

Let me be the first to congratulate the happy family on the birth of this beautiful little pink bundle of joy.

Ohhhh she is so very beautiful. Did the boys take it well that they have a baby sister?

Glad to hear that they were able to take care of Shawn with no problem.

God is Good!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! She is pretty sweet looking, eh? Elias, at age 4, was interested, but Euan, 2, was much more interested in the excavater truck given him by "the baby"-- Elias was also upset because they didn't call the baby "Serena"...

God is good--all the time! (and now breathing a loooong sigh of relief...)

Serena? Where did he get that name from? I didn't realize they were going with all E names till now. I don't think I've ever seen Elliette before. You must be VERY PROUD, having your name in the middle. Congrats again, Grandma!!! ;)

Congratulations! I am so excited for Shawn and Jon (and you, too!). She is absolutely perfect, and Elliette is a beautiful name. Give Shawn and Jon my love!

Thanks, all!!
Serena is the name of a little girl in Elias' class--apparently she's okay, if he wants his sister named after her--
