Blossom: Elise Marie

Elise Marie
January 1, 2009 (first baby of the year at St. Joe's)
7:14 AM
9 pounds 4 ounces
20 inches

Mama Rose says: 11 days overdue and with a required induction date scheduled for the following week, we aggressively tried natural induction methods to get things started. Went to yoga in the morning and acupuncture in the afternoon. By that evening, I was in labor. It was a long one (Tuesday evening to Thursday morning) and at times quite "challenging", but it was filled with a lot of music, laughter, and love – just as we wanted it to be and as it should have been. Rose and Florian can't sing the Blooma and St. Joe's praises enough and are thankful to have had such a caring and supportive community to lean on during the pregnancy and now during this "4th trimester." Thanks for everything!
