Esme's First Bath

Oh, the indignity of it all

A little privacy please

You know Mom and Dad are going to embarrass me horribly with these pictures some day. Wait a minute, who has access to this blog?

Showing off for Giselle

So my doula came to visit today which was loads of fun. And I was on my very best behavior. I started off awake and alert, followed by some cute squirming and then settled (or actually sprawled) across dad's lap for a good hour and a half or so. Giselle was very impressed. So were mom and dad.

Some more picture fun

Breastmilk please, shaken, not stirred.
Time to wake up. A good stretch seems to help.
You paparazzi are relentless. Enough with the pictures.
Up, up and away!

Time with Mom and Dad

We do all love to cuddle

Home Team

We're #1!

Weighing in at...

In the pink corner, hailing from Gramercy Park, Manhattan, it's Esme Gordon...weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz.

For those of you keeping score, that means Esme gained a whole 1 lb 3 oz in the last week alone. In fact, the doctor had to double check the scale to make sure she was reading it correctly.

That puts to rest any question of whether she's eating enough. To give you a sense of how much that is, it would be equivalent to me (Will)  putting on over 35 lbs in a week.

Whoops, gotta run. Esme wants to eat...

Welcome Esme!

Hi Everyone,

We are extremely excited to welcome our baby girl, Esme Eva Gordon, into our family. She was born on August 11, 2010 at 12:56 AM, ten days ahead of schedule. Upon arrival, she weighed 6 lbs 3 oz and was 18.5 inches long. Both Melissa and Esme are healthy, happy and doing well. We are already home and enjoying the family bonding time. Attached is Esme’s first candid. She’s a real cutie and we can’t wait for you all to meet her.

Lots of love,
Melissa, Will and Esme

p.s. If you aren’t familiar with Esme’s name, it’s pronounced EHZ-may
