Introducing Frances

Mom and baby after 18 hours of natural labor including 3 1/2 hours of just pushing! So worth it!

Welcome our baby girl to the world!

Frances Elliott Williams
November 6, 2012 at 7:10 am
8 lb, 14 oz, 19 in

She’s perfect, healthy and happy! Below snapshots from her first week!

Frances 3 days old.

Going home outfit! Dad bought the hat, sweater and booties at Bonpoint in Paris for Mother’s Day!

Frances loves sucking on her fingers and always has her hands near her face. She was delivered with “telephone arm” with her arm bent by her ear.

Sleepy smile on her 1-week birthday!

Frances trying to wake Dad up. She’s not actually sleeping with dad and mom was there to monitor. She sleeps in a bassinet to our bed.

Frances wrapped in heirloom blanket from Beekman 1809 with a beautiful cotton blue Brahms Mount blanket below.

  1. what a gorgeous baby, and of course her ‘going home’ outfit is so lovely. Am looking forward to your new posts as you feel able – naturally, laundry will take centre stage for several years!
    Enjoy these fleeting moments, as babies grow so quickly.

  13. oh bring it on those crazy days and sleepless nights of joy and tears and every nappy getting quicker and every feed smoother until the magic of dream-feeds and first smiles and first grips and oh I could go on and on. Enjoy this time and well done to all. A little miracle happened.

  14. Congratulations to you and your beautiful new baby girl, Katy! I’ve been reading your blog for a couple years now, and I was starting to worry (because that’s just me, plus hadn’t seen you post for awhile). So I am so, so happy that you and your new little one are all happy and healthy!! Many blessings to your family, Katy!

  17. The nursery has all of its parts but it hasn’t been put together yet. She’s in our room in a bassinet for a couple months so I have sometime. Looking forward to sharing more.

    We have 3-4 other house projects in the works (laundry machines!) that I hope to share in the coming weeks/months.
