This is Ella Meredith Jones, she was born on May 18th and was very healthy, and we are happy to have her in our home. She loves the bath, or shower which is nice. Mackenzie loves to hold her, rock her to sleep, pop her nuk back in her mouth, and loves to help me hold her bottle. I think Ella and Mackenzie have had a bond since the beginning of time. Just after we had Ethan I had all the kids ready to go out the door and for my own sanity I always look around to make sure I have everything... and everyone. I asked them if we had everything and Mackenzie looked up at me and said "We need a baby girl in our family". I think she's been waiting for the day her baby sister would be here in our home, although she didn't have to wait very long. We are blessed every day by our children.

What a sweet little girl. Thanks for posting these pictures. I loved the story of Mackenzie 'wanting' another sister, it is too sweet. You and Tim and such great parents - I don't know who else could handle so many young kids as well (and calmly) as you do. Kudos to you both :-)

Erin, you inspire me when I see your beautiful young family of seven together at the dinner table, or the extra time you spent placing your girls' curls for church, or CALMLY responding to a kid-"fight" at the mini-pool. When you take time to help out Erin with meals and "twins-duty," and substitute for us and the Baileys at church, you demonstrate how to truly place others needs ahead of your own, without "letting yourself go" (because you still always look beautiful). :)

Erin,
Ella is beautiful, and I love the signature Jones's cheeks! I can't wait to meet her, and I can't wait to really catch up with you.
Love ya girl!
