….may I introduce to you, my sweet Internet friends, my new daughter, Amelia Grace.

With her daddy…

With her youngest body guard…

And lastly, with her now neurotic and freaking the fuck out mother. Who could probably use some vodka right about now.

We’re home now and doing fantastically, save for the PANIC! that I seem to have coursing through my veins. What, me hormonal? Tomorrow, we’ll call the neurosurgeon (am not planning upon getting used to that phrase) and arrange an appointment to see when she’ll be having surgery to remove the hernia.

While he seemed unconcerned, this wasn’t HIS daughter’s head he was talking about, so you’ll have to excuse me now while I go drool over a bottle of Valium while stroking it lovingly. Thank you all so very much for your kind words and prayers. If anything has helped me, it is that.

  7. Aunt Becky,

    She is so amazingly beautiful. Seriously, she is perfect. Her big bro looks so proud. Beautiful children. Give ’em smooches for me!

  8. She is so adorable. Congrats again. She seems well worth the wait. I am praying the MRI will all prove to be full of FAT and all will be over before you know it. Home safe and sound. Keep well until then.

  9. She is possibly the most beautiful newborn I have ever seen. Congratulations! and good luck with the medical stuff. I am sure it is just a scare that will get cleared out in a week or two and end up being nothing to worry about.

    I love the look on your son’s face – so great!

  17. Becky, she is beautiful and I am so sorry that I missed out on the birth story! I wish I could have been one of the ones who helped you through your panic, but now I am going to help by telling you to breathe and try not to worry and enjoy her, cause she is GORGEOUS!!


  18. Becky, she is GORGEOUS. Congrats.

    And I hope that all goes well with the doctors. We are no strangers to babies and medical probelsm, unfortunately. I know how stressful and panic-inducing it is. Hang in there.

    You have a beautiful daughter.

  19. Whoa, Becky, I haven’t read your blog in a few days and I missed all of the excitement. Congrats on Amelia! She is beautiful! I am so sorry that she has a bump on her noggin – but she will be fine, I’m sure. Good luck with everything!

  20. Congratulations! She’s beautiful! I fell a bit behind on my blog reading over the last week, so I missed all the drama-I’m so glad she’s doing well. How scary that must have been for you and your husband! I’m sure it’s still scary, but you know that you have lots of people thinking about you and praying for you, and hopefully that counts for something.

    P.S. For what it’s worth, I was a Wednesday child, and I am not full of woe!

  21. She’s beautiful! You better watch out, though…I’m sure she’ll have your wit to go along with those looks! 😉

  22. Becky, many congratulations to you and Dave on the birth of your daughter (yes, just tuning in now…). She is absolutely lovely. I will keep her and her pretty little head in my thoughts.

  23. She is adorable and perfect and I am so very sorry that you have to worry about her right now… instead of being able to enjoy every minute of having her around… ((hugs))
