Baby Ella is Here!!

The newest addition to the Tait family has arrived! Ella Marie Tait was born on Monday, February 25th at 5:23 p.m. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and measured at 20.5 inches.
Ava is already turning out to be a great big sister. She especially loves singing to the baby....make sure to check out the video below for a peek at her awesome singing skills.
**As for the delivery...I'll spare you all the details for now, but let me tell you, it was amazing! I can honestly say it was the most exhilarating experience of my entire life. It was extremely intense, but well worth it. David was the best labor and delivery coach that a girl could ever hope for. Poor little Ella was a little bruised on her face because she came out so fast, but other than that, we are none the worse for the wear. :)

So.... now we can start this new chapter in the Tait household. Wish us luck!!

That baby is absolutely beautiful!! She doesn't look wrinkled and ugly like 99% of newborns. We are gonna come meet her tomorrow if that's ok... I'll call you to see. Congratulations again, and job well done Kimmy! (p.s.- I want to eat Ava in that video!)

She is so beautiful just like her mama and her sister! Congratulations Taits! I am sure she will be just as sweet as her big sister (the video is adorable!!). We can't wait to meet her!

Congrats!! She is absolutely beautiful. We want all the details. I love labor stories. You need to post everything. Glad she is doing well. Ava is adorable as well.

That is so wonderful. I always send Hendrix in to sing to MilaBelle when she's crying, it's a great way to give yourself another moment to finish whatever it is you're doing. Eva's already has the big sis job down. Happy to see you home. You're going to love this time. If it's hard know it's not just you, one to two is an adjustment. We can't wait to meet her, as soon as all our germs have passed we'll be there.

Yahoo!!! Wow, that was fast. Congrats. I'm so glad everything went well. I can't wait to hear the details, I'm sure I'll be fascinated. Ava is so smart. I'm impressed she knows her Twinkle Twinkle ABC's! :) Oh and Ella is a doll... literally. She looks like a doll, I love it! Good job. :)

Awww! Congrat's! She is BEAUTIFUL! Good luck with the adjustment of having two! I'm sure you'll be fine! I agree, we need some details ;)

She is adorable...let me know when I can come meet her!! Sounds like you did great in the delivery!! Only Kim would describe child birth as "exhilirating"...I prefer to use phrases such as, "that sucked" or "that freakin' hurt"....but we've already established that I am a MUCH bigger baby than you!! : ) I love you!! Great Job!!
