Welcome to this world, Elle Jasmine

August 5, 2011 at 1:12am,
Mark and Katie met their long-awaited, precious 
Elle Jasmine Ritter
for the first time.
6.5 lbs of beauty, grace, peace and love in a baby.

J and I went to visit our friends and meet Elle Sunday morning before church
when she was only 55 hours old.
We enjoyed blueberry muffins and coffee bean together
as we watched their little girl squirm and smile and coo and sleep
and chatted about life, labor, moving, friendship, and change.

And of course, we took a few pictures.

I love how Mark and Katie celebrate together. They had the entire house decorated for Elle.

Meet Elle

their family... exhausted but so peaceful and joyful

Congratulations, M and K.
We are truly so excited for you.
Thank you for letting us share in your joy with you.
Your little girl is beautiful.
So honored to watch you grow as parents together.
We love you!
