Thursday's Child...

A Puritan Rythm about children...

Monday’s child is fair of face.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
Wednesday’s child is full of woe.
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving.
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

(More modern verisons say...
But the child that is born on the Lord's day
Is bonny and happy and wise and gay. )
I'm not sure where this adventure is going to take us, but I'm sure it will be a trip! Elisha Britt arrived at 11:45 on Thursday, January 22. He weighs 7 lbs and 12 oz, is 20 1/2 inches long. We are all doing fine, and can't wait to leave the hospital and go home!

Looks beautiful. Great job Dani. You guys look so happy!!

IS THAT RED HAIR??!?! or at least some shade close to it?!

Dani said...

Sara and Hannah, I think he has brown hair, the nurses think he has Auburn colored hair. Either way, it's definately got some red when you hold him in the sunlight next to the window.

OH My Gracious, What a cute baby. I think I have love at first sight. He is just adorable and is just right for a borrowed Poppa. God has Blessed again. I am so thankful that everything went well. We love you guys and are so happy for you. With all of our kidding aside, I can just feel that my little Brother Gary is going to be a great Daddy. And the newest Britt is going to have a wonderful Mommy. I can't wait for my "Britt Fix" time.

Dani, I just read your post again and realized that you wrote it less than an hour after giving birth?!?!?! Wow, you are Wonder Woman!!! lol :-D

Lori, just so you know, I did cheat a bit. I had everything typed up before hand. I only had to enter the time, weight, and length. Then add pictures.
