Ellie Mae Ruelas

Just wanted to share some more pictures with family and friends besides cell phone pictures :) 

My water broke on Tuesday night, the 26th at about 11:45 pm. 

 Me during the long wait of labor
She was finally born on June 28th, around 3 am. She weighed in at 5 lbs 3.9 oz and was 18 1/4 inches long. Not too bad for being 5 weeks early! I only got to hold her for about 3 seconds before the NICU doctors took her. Ismael went with them and took these pictures to bring back to me so I could see.


 I had to wait for about two and a half hours for my epidural to wear off before I could go and see her. This is my first time getting a good look at her.



First time I got to hold her- June 29th- the best feeling in the world! The nurse was so nice to let me for a minute. We still won't be able to hold her for a few more days.

 Yep- looks like her dad!!

I will get up more details later- right now we are too busy soaking up time with her and going back and forth to the hospital. It will be a couple more weeks before she is out. Thank you for all of your prayers. We really appreciate it and feel everyone's love. I wish all of you could meet her- believe it or not, she is even cuter in person!
