Gigi Elia


Born June 2, 2010

At 3:56 p.m.

7 pounds 13 ounces  21 1/4 inches

Last Wednesday we welcomed our little Gigi into the world.  She is doing well and is a very sweet baby.  I am completely in love with her.  However, as much as my heart is filled with joy, parts of it are still so empty.  Having Gigi has made me realize all the things I will never do with Sophia & Ellie; all the things they will never be a part of, all the things I will miss with them, with two babies.  I have had a few moments where I thought, “Oh my gosh!  This is so hard with just Gigi, how would I have handled it with Sophia & Ellie?”  But I know I would have, it would have been challenging, but we would have managed and loved every second of it (well, almost!)  But for now I am just loving life, the good with the bad not so good, because it has brought us to where we are today…and that is a pretty good place.  I was feeding Gigi a couple days ago and looking at the girls’ sketch, trying to decide if she resembles them.  I was overcome with such a warm feeling and at that moment I knew my girls are so happy and proud to be a big sister to little Gigi.  I think they especially like that her middle name is a combination of their names.   I wish they were here with us welcoming home our new little on, but I guess they are doing that from above.

I will write more details and post more pics later, I just wanted you all to know she is here!!
