Happy one-week-old birthday, Ellie!

In one week, Ellie has:

  • Kept four adults (Mom & Dad, Grandma & Grandpa Fonder) busy with an all-hands-on-deck approach to keep up with her.
  • Had her first visitors in the hospital on her second night in the world … Kelly Berens, Anne & Andrew Hanson.
  • Had Grandma & Grandpa Fonder drive from Wisconsin to see her on her first night home.
  • Expressed her opposition to being in the world by emitting what has become known as the Ellie-goose call.
  • Hiccuped. A lot.
  • Had her first trip to the pediatrician.
  • Had her first sponge bath.
  • Became an expert swaddle escape artist.
  • Received lots of presents including a March Madness fruit bowl from Erin & Aaron, flowers and yummy food from Sam & Jen, flowers from Ellen & Oliver and her first shopping spree courtesy of Great Uncle Jordan and Great Aunt Kelly.
  • Met Daisy & Riley, who are protective and curious, respectively, about the newest member of their pack.
  • Met her first Hill auntie, Mary, who brought Miss E some great Badgers and Packers socks and new books.  
  • Had her first calm-ish night leading into her one-week-old birthday.
