The Reason I've Been Away

I do hope you will excuse my absence from this blog of mine. For the past month my attentions have been completely focused on this little one:

Eleanor Rose Hardie
Dec. 17, 2009
6lbs. 7oz. 19 inches

Absolutely Perfect





I hope the sweet memories of newborn days stay clear forever. I hope the sting of sleepless nights fades quickly.

No promises about when I'll be back, but I will....

Perfect indeed! And so very sweet. Lovely photos. Let me know if you need anything at all.

Breanne said...

Oh my goodness! She looks so much like you, especially in those last couple of photos! Beautiful girl!

Whitney, she is beautiful. And such a gorgeous name. You never meet any skanks named Eleanor. Make sure you take pictures- I was so consumed with trying to be a perfect mom that I didn't get as many as I would have liked. Pictures should almost always come first!

Kelli Nicole said...

Love these pictures! It was so great to see you and meet the little one!

Nate said...

She looks like a Mini Whit! Excellent photos, too.

Bonnie said...

Oh, she is gorgeous - and we have that same gown for Lydia. Aren't newborns fun? And won't it be great when we can sleep for more than 3 hours at a time?

Hope everything is going well, Whitney.

Kelsey said...

Yeah, kudos as well on the name picking, I loves it. Your baby is adorable! And you know I'm not lying because you know I would tell you straight up if your baby was ugly. She's not.

I think it's great that Eleanor has a momma with some sweet photography skills. I have a camera with a lazy shutter. Love love love the pics.

Deb said...

Photos of Eleanor, Hooray! She is so cute! I love these photos, though even with your great talent, they probably don't do your precious baby justice. Wish I could meet her in person. Congratulations again.

Oh my dear, she's absolutely beautiful! I'll excuse your absence, if you pleasure us with more pictures. [: Congratulations.

She's so darling! Aren't babies the best thing ever? I'm so excited for you! Good luck- Cherish the memories, they grow up so fast! I look at Nathan now and realize he is no longer a little baby anymore, but it sure is fun to watch them grow!

Congratulations from the Branches - she's darling!
I remember wishing someone had told me two things about newborns - listen to their sounds and notice their sweet smell. They're amazing little things and go away so quickly. :)
