We have Ella and she is amazing!

I'll write more detail about everything once I have a bit more time.  Overall she has been awesome!  Very mellow, no tears through us getting her, going a shopping trip, was happy playing in our room for awhile and ate dinner as well as snacks at the store.
She cried when we changed her diaper and each time we slowly removed her 3 layers of clothes (pants and shirts).  We opted not to attempt a bath tonight but did get her into jammies and after about an hour of on and off crying and both of us taking turns holding her she finally felt comfortable enough to actually put her head down followed by closing her eyes and going to sleep.  She is now comfy in the middle of our bed.  Must say and better transition than I expeted, though it is still day 1 :(
All in all an AMAZING day!  Lots more pics to follow, these are just a few of us at the store (from my phone, haven't downloaded the camera yet)
