The 6th Co-op child, Miss Elizabeth Laura Eddy (AKA Ellie) made her way into the world this morning. I learned of her arrival via text message on my morning run and attempted to race back to the house to get up to Spokane and meet this new baby. My "race" pace was short-lived, so I jogged back leisurely instead. With Dori's help, we got ready and loaded the kiddos in the car. Dori headed home and we picked up my Grandma A. so we could all go to Spokane together.

At 8lbs, she is smaller than I expected. With all those big Eddy babies, I'm a little disappointed she's not a twelve-pounder. C'mon, Kevin and Amy. Really. I thought you always grew them big.
But, she is a beautiful baby who feels just right in her Ninang's arms. It's amazing how I can see similarities with each one of her siblings in her face, but she looks like her own little person.
