Finally some pictures of our Princess!

Ms. Ella Ripley

We took a picture of her next to a loaf of bread to show how tiny she is.

Big Papa Sita and his baby girl

Ella is just like her mommy...very sleepy.

Sleepy face.
Still Sleeping.
Finally! Here are a couple pictues of our little Ella. I am not sure how to do a picture collage yet so this will have to do for now. Ella was born on July 18th at around 1:30 pm. She weighed in at a hefty 5 lb. 12 oz. and was 19 in. long. Everyone was shocked that she was so tiny, because her dad is well...... not so tiny. We took a picture of her next to a loaf of bread to show how tiny she is. We can't decide who she looks like, we just know that she is the cutest thing we've ever seen!

Harry Potter is my guilty pleasure (Sita)

So I come home on July 21st. It is my third day as a father and, while I am extremely excited to be a father, I can't wait until my copy of the 7th and final book of the Potter series arrives. While most would probably be pondering the trials and responsibilities of first-time fatherhood, I wanted to know whether or not a fictional wizard would be killed in the search for magical objects to save the magical world. Now as sad as that may sound ; it kind of gets worse. I received the book on Saturday afternoon and I finished the book Sunday night. While I took the moments to kiss my daughter and tell her I love her, the rest of the time was dedicated to the book. I won't drop any spoilers, but I will say that I was right about Snape. To make matters worse, I dragged my wife to the midnight preview of Harry Potter 5 O.O.T.P. We didn't dress up or anything, but I did kind of feel like my mom had dropped us off at the theater. I also couldn't help feeling that all of the other people there weren't exactly the cool kids at school.

Pictures on the way...

The most annoying thing to see, or rather not see, is no pictures. Of course we want to hear about your life and cute kids and how they walked from one side of the room to the other and stared at the wall while looking so adorable, but the big draw is generally at least one picture. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture of our daughter (to the 3 people who look at this Blog) it was taken on Sita's phone which is, for lack of a better word, "ghetto." Our current camera that we own has pictures ranging from Oct. of 2005 to present day. It's kind of like looking into a time machine except it only shows you 25 days out the last 2 years of life. Since Ella arrived, we have managed to take more than generally common of us and we will post them once we figure out how to work this computer stuff. They are adorable and not just the ones of Sita, but the baby's are way cute too....oh and Shay's are way cute too. So anyway they are on their way for all 3 of you to see and anyone else who happens to fall upon this little Blog.
