She is finally here!

Introducing the newest member of the Munkeby family..Eliana Michal Munkeby! Eliana joined our family on Sept. 2nd at 1:16p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 7 oz and measuring 19 1/4 inches long. Eliana has adorable little features and dark brownish/reddish hair. She has long fingers and toes and has already captured our hearts. Ethan met his little sister yesterday and is intrigued by her but a bit leery at the same time. He wanted to touch Eliana but only from a safe distance. I am so glad he has been able to stay with Aunt Jamie during this time and that he has really taken to her. Jamie has definitely been a blessing to us! Eliana and I are both doing great. The pain from my c-section does not seem as bad this time around even though it is still painful. I am praying for a quick recovery.
Thank you all for your prayers. Here are some pictures. I will download more very soon.

Our lovely surgery gear!

Happy parents with baby Eliana
