Our baby girl is here! Ellie Ghee Yeon Yoo joined us on October 22, 2016 at 1:59 am weighing 5 lbs 11 oz and measuring 18.5 inches. Ellie surprised everyone by making her debut 5 weeks early. One minute I was sitting talking to a coworker about a meeting we needed to have next week to discuss my maternity leave and the next thing I knew my water had broken and I was standing in a puddle!
Our first month with Ellie has been the fastest month of my life, with some very long nights sprinkled in the mix. Ellie spent her first week in the special care nursery and while she seemed fine most of the time, I was a wreck having to leave her when I was discharged. Luckily, the hospital was close and we were able to work out a plan where we could be with her most of the day and night. Bringing Ellie home was the best!
If you missed it, Tae created a video of her first week that you can watch here. We are beyond thankful for a healthy baby and love that she is here with us.
At one month, Ellie is still a pretty easy baby. Her favorite things are eating, being chest to chest, and being cozy. Currently, Ellie also likes to be wide awake in the night and sleep the day away. Ellie’s least favorite things are diaper changes, changing clothes and not getting her food fast enough!
