Welcome Eli!!

Announcing our newest edition!!!
Elijah Garrett Claypool was born on
March 26 at 8:52pm.
He weighed in at 7lbs 14oz, 20.5".
He joined us a very welcomed 2 weeks early!!

After 2 false alarm trips into the ER in a week, we were getting antsy for his arrival. Turns out, all I had to do was practice jumping with Jack (seriously...one jump did the trick), and my water broke at home on Saturday afternoon. It was a pretty quick and easy delivery, in fact, our nurse had gone on break thinking it would be a few hours at least before we met our little guy. She came back from break to quite a surprise.

As for Jack, he is going through quite an adjustment. We are definitely seeing a whole new side of him. We had been worried that he wouldn't really understand the new baby being home with us - especially seeing mommy give so much attention to someone besides him. He is having some jealousy issues, but we are hoping they will be short lived, and he will start to be happy about his new little brother. There have been a couple cute little moments between them, but for the most part, Jack is very suspicious of this new little bundle that cries and gets in the way of him crawling under the swing (because today he actually crawled under the swing - while Eli was in it - while it was swinging - and yes, it did hit him in the head...awesome).

Anyway, here are just a few pics of Eli's first days in the world...
