Congratulations she is absolutely beautiful. Is Eliana wearing the same little baby hat that was placed on Isaac when he was born in that first photo, the one straight after delivery?? It looks like it & i think that is the most sweetest thing ever. I'm sure her big brother was watching over her & guiding her safely into the world.

Desiree said...

I must say, you and Spencer make beautiful babies! 2 of the most gorgeous I have ever seen! Praying for your family. So happy for you guys and your new miracle.

OK, Stacy. Not that I am an expert, but I have worked with newborns and preemies for 24 years as a RN, so I feel like I know babies pretty well. She is flat out gorgeous!!!! I was praying so hard for her to be healthy, I never was concerned about her looks. But she is truly a beautiful baby. I know y'all are enjoying each moment with her. I am so, so happy for you!

Congratulations and praise God, Stacey and Spencer! She is one of the most beautiful newborns I have ever seen.

Stacy and Spencer,

I have been following your blog since shortly after I had a miscarriage and right before sweet Isaac was born. Though I have never posted, I thought of you all day on Thursday and was teary when your sister announced that Eliana arrived. My heart goes out to the four of you on this bittersweet journey of life. I am certain Isaac is going to be a wonderful presence in Sweet Eliana's life.

All the best,
Erin

Wow, she is an adorable little chiquita! The name Eliana is a popular Brazilian name...all that dark hair really makes her live up to her name! There must be some spanish heritage on the maternal side. Best wishes for a happy homecoming with your new little bundle of joy!
