Elliott makes his mark


Well, we made it! Elliott is 6 weeks old today. I had my 6 week postpartum check up at the midwives’ office today and I got an A+…well, an A- because my blood pressure is still somewhat elevated. They say that’s probably due to a lack of sleep! It was so good to see Sharon, the midwife who actually delivered Elliott, again. We shared such an intimate day in our lives with her and I found myself missing her after the delivery. Elliott got most of the attention, and everyone at the office got a chance to love on him. We also got to participate in a neat tradition that they do with the babies after 6 weeks. All of the babies they deliver have their footprints marked on the walls of the office. It was fun to sit in the waiting room while I was pregnant and look at all of the names, weights, and birthdates of all of the babies delivered by the midwives. And now, Elliott has made his mark, too! He was a very good sport about it, but then again, he is a good sport about most things!

Applying the ink…

…ready to go!

Elliott makes his mark!

All done!

Precious feet!

Sharon, our wonderful midwife!

Getting some love from Dora the office manager…

…and from Susan, the nurse!

What a fun day!


  1. What a sweetie! I love the pictures…I will call you soon, we still haven’t given Elliott his present!
