We did a thing!

Meet Ellen Pamela Knees. She joined our family at 7:14 this morning, August 23rd. She is a whopper at 9 lbs 7 oz and 21.25 inches tall. Big brother Lewis is a big fan, and so are mama and dada. Everyone is healthy and recovering from a tough labor – and we could not be happier with what we got for our efforts. We love you, Ellen!

I’ll post the “birth story” at some point in the undefined, but hopefully not terribly distant future. With all the (literally) gory details. This will have to do for today!
