Elle.  I sure love this girl.  She is so sweet and so sensitive.  A true 'mama's girl'.  She begged and begged to be at Lily's birth.  I thought long and hard about it and talked with her about exactly what was going to happen.  I decided to let her join us.  After I had my epidural and was not in anymore pain I had a friend bring her to the hospital.  She was sooo excited.  She came just in time and stayed through the entire birth.  She told me that since she was the first person Lily saw (true) that Lily thinks she is her mom.  She was standing on a chair next to the doctor holding Jon's hand during the delivery.  I remember her with a big smile on her face saying, "mama, I see Lily"!  The nurse was also very sweet with Elle and let her help give Lily her first bath.  Needless to say, Elle is in LOVE with Lily.  I mean, true love.  I think it will be a day she will never forget and one that will bond her to Lily forever.
