Elsie has arrived!

We are very happy to share the news that we have a new daughter!  Elizabeth Dorothy Phipps (we are going to call her Elsie) was born at 3:50 pm on Tuesday the 10th.  She checked in at a svelte 9 lbs 15 oz and was 21.5 inches long.  We are all doing well, and having alot of fun getting to know each other.


  1. She is the cutest baby girl I've ever seen!!! I am so excited to meet her! I was jumping up and down yesterday I was so happy. Love you!

  2. Congrats, Kristi & Jack! We're all excited here. Take care of that princess! Jim, Mary & the Girls

  3. Hey Jack and Kristi - Congratulations! Glad to see that you and the baby are both doing well. Any chance I'll get to meet her in October?

  4. I just got the notice from Troy about the baby. Congratulations and God Bless! She is beautiful! Get your rest while you can. Your ears had to be burning because we were just discussing over the weekend when your due date was. Troy,Wendy,and the clan

  5. Kristi and Jack, she sure is beautiful, just like her mom. Jack, you look like a natural.

  6. Congratulations!! So wonderful to hear the good news, I am very excited for you and Jack. I hope to meet Elsie some day and catch-up with you guys.

  8. Wish we had the blog link before yesterday! Congratulations to you both! I see Jack is already twisted about her little finger - get used to it...
    Keep posting lots of pictures so we can watch her grow.
