Hi Elizabeth Enjoy every minute with your little angel. It goes by so fast. I have an Allie Rae too ( Alexandra Rae) My baby is now twelve. Where does the time go? All the best to you and your family.

Mr. Packard

All those blogs are nice Elizabeth....My advise for your daughter is put a guitar in her hand when she about 3 and let her teach herself to play...Maybe she will grow up to be the next Jeff Beck or Lita Ford....you wont have to pay $90,000 to educate her and she will be in a position to support you and you husband someday.....if you're worried at all that she may be deprived the experience of a college degree all you have to do is take her up to SUNY Plattsburgh one weekend when shes 19 or 20 and when you pick her up on Sunday she will have had an entire college experience in one weekend...For about $200-$300......

And take LOTS of pictures!!!!

Elizabeth

Wow! Thanks for the great notes!
I have to admit that I wrapped all my Christmas presents this year with Alli in a baby bjorn!! I still haven't mastered the other sling ( she was also quite small so it didn't seem right) And I too have the utmost respect for moms-- it's like I'm now in a new club :)

Hi Elizabeth,

Welcome back and congratulations on that beautiful baby girl! She truly is beautiful just like her mom! I am so glad to see you back with Carol and Elisa. Tricia did a good job filling in for you, but no one can replace the energy that you bring to the table with Carol and Elisa. The three of you are amazing team together. Hang in there it will get easier. Just enjoy every minute because it goes fast!

Again, welcome back and you look amazing!!!

Elizabeth, your baby daughter is adorable. Congrats on being a mom! From one mom to another, it is a good idea to try and sleep when she sleeps. The first few months after my son was born, I was under the same notion as you, to get things done while he slept. By the time he woke up, I was exhausted with no rest time! Now, he is 18 months and I have learned this important lesson and I am able to take a nap when he does, which is now once a day. Motherhood is the most tiring but rewarding experience I have ever encountered. My mom taught me, "Life as you know it will never be the same" She was right! I have the utmost of respect, like never before, for all the moms out there. Never did I realize how much they truly do for their children until I became a mom for the first time. Again, best wishes!

Welcome back!
Congratulations...she's beautiful!
Here's a tip I tell every new parent: Try the Babies R Us brand of diapers called "especially for baby". They are half the price of huggies and pampers and are just as good. As a father of twin three-year-old girls, this helped us save lots of money.
Here's another tip: when things get crazy, just laugh about it. That's what my wife and I did when both girls cried at the same time!
Enjoy every second with her!

John

I don't have kids, but the rules I live by to get things done are that "if you asked about it, then you just volunteered to do it," and "if someone else volunteered you, that's close enough." Elisa falls into the second category. Sorry, girl.

Other than that, a couple of friends have told me that they love those baby slings. It lets them stay involved with the baby while they're getting things accomplished. The best of them are the slings that are less adjustable, not more (more stable for the baby and fewer points of failure); one size shouldn't fit all, and your husband may need his own.

Elizabeth

Family first is right!! And you are spot on when it comes to my co workers-- Elisa is AMAZING with Alli. All of Allison's best accesories are from the lovely Elisa, she spoils her rottten! ( and she spoils that neice of hers too..belive me!!) And Carol, don't even get me started-- I'm so lucky to have a balanced and motivated mom next to me everyday.. and Alli loves her!!

Robert

Elizabeth,

Welcome back and congratulations on becoming a mommy! I say that Allison looks cute. You'll do great! Taking care of her is important. You'll be a great mommy. I also agree that Elisa can babysit your daughter if she wants to.

Pat

Hey Elizabeth, welcome back!!!! if u needed someone t warch your daughter sometime, i'm sure one of your co-workers could help you out. congrats once again on motherhood.

tommy

Welcome home, M'lady. You look great! Webcams so she can see and hear you when she has to. If you're stuck for a sitter, my wife & I'll jump on that in a hot second. We'll send her back when it's time to pay for college.
