A healthy baby girl!
Since we came home from the hospital we have been very busy. I won't bore you with too many details, but here are a few pictures to bring you all up to date on what we have been up to for the past 7 weeks.

I had to put some pictures of Ella Tate's nursery on is my favorite room in the house!

Didn't my friend, Kathy, do a WONDEFUL job painting the chest of drawers!
