At Last.

By now, I'm sure most have guessed that Baby Beep Beep has arrived.

She sure has.
After three hours of labor, twenty eight minutes of pushing, Evelyn Nanette was born on Wednesday, December 3rd at 11:53am.
8 pounds, 4 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long. Perfect in every way.
Our hearts couldn't be any more full of love and joy.
While J said all along it would be a girl, I was skeptical. But I should have known it was a girl.

Only a girl would create such drama even in utero.

Six months of morning sickness requiring me to be on prescription meds.
Varicose vein issues.
Spending the last month impatiently waiting for any day to arrive.
And of course her quick and dramatic arrival to the world. A drop in my blood pressure, a loss of her heartbeat and a quick field trip to the OR, where just as the anesthesiologist told me I was going to go to sleep the doctor shouted that they found the heartbeat after all. Sending us back to our room to deliver naturally.

She was worth every single part.

"My baby sister."


"I love her."

"What's her name again?"


"She's so so cute."

She is here.

Making our family complete.

At last.

Yay! You had baby beep beep! I was going to call you on Thursday to see how you were, but I decided if you really had gone to the hospital I didn't want to bother you. Hope you enjoy these days of getting to know the new family dynamics.

Samara & Jeff,

I am very happy for your family.

Your mom would be honored to share her name with a new life in your family. This little girl will have a special angel in heaven watching over her.

I am also glad that your dad was able to see her and hold her on her 1st day of life.

Thank You for sending me this announcement of her birth.

Smiles,
Linda Fuller
