We are the parents who say...please welcome our daughter Elizabeth Adele, aka Libby.
Like we always do, she squeaked in under her deadline, making her debut just as the last rays of daylight clung to June 23.
Details and pics to come later, sleep to come now. And let the gender prediction gloating begin.
Also, my apologies to Illiterati readers -- the hospital is blocking me from logging into Typepad, so I couldn't put a notice on TLB's blog.
Update: here's out little girl peeking out at the world--
Oh, super awesome!!!!
I'm so happy for you guys. And Elizabeth is absolutely my favourite name. Well, played, Brando. Well played.
Congrats -- can't wait to see the pictures.
Congratulations! Terrific name. I know only wonderful Elizabeths and this ensures the streak continues.
So happy everyone is healthy and safe. It's been a long road for you here, and now you're getting on a newer, funner, more sleep-deprived road.
Libby shares a birthday with June Carter Cash, Frances MacDormand, Joss Whedon, and Glenn Danzig. They're in good company.
Congratulations! We are looking forward to seeing pictures of your bundle of joy.
And gloating indeed -- AG said that was no pee pee on the ultrasound, TLB. :)
I am really happy for you and TLB!
What great, great news! Wow. Congrats to you both. And congrats to Libby for hitting the parental jackpot.
Congratulations! I hope all of you (especially mother and sweet babe) are resting well.
Brando- have your feet touched the ground yet? I bet not. :)
Congratulations, you three! Rest up (as best you can with a newborn). I can't wait to talk to you about sweet Libby - who, by the way, you can still call the Libbinator!
Oh yeah, and Halley called last night and left me a message that the baby was born and everybody's doing OK, but never said whether it was a boy or girl! I'm glad you have a blog to refer to for these minor details!
Congrats! I'm so happy for the both of you.
Yaaay, Libby!! Can't wait to meet the wee one. Congrats to both of you. We love you; take care of yourselves and enjoy holding little Libby. You can't spoil a baby!
Yes!!!! Very excellent, indeed! I will be constantly visiting this blog for updates. I can't wait to meet Libby!
Oh, how great, great, great! So, so, happy for you guys. Truly am. It's a special, special time.
(Why do I keep repeating myself? My record is skipping here...)
Enjoy it all. Congrats and love.
p.s. *Love* the name Libby.
Today is the first day of the rest of her life.
Congratulations! She'll be a stranger to you for, like, a second, and then you'll wonder how you ever could have not known her. (If that makes any sense.)
BIG congrats to you both!!! Remember: the swaddle is magic. -Jason, Kelly, and Gabriel Zech
woot! I'm pretty damn excited for you. Looking forward to seeing piccy and hearing all the details....
As to gender, I'm like stephen Colbert; I don't see gender.
Which has led to some pretty tense situations in bars, let me tell you.
But it also means I'm just as happy for you either way, cuz it really don't matter. Still your child
And Montana, I will be thinging about the babe all during Summerfest. HAH!
Congratulations!!! Welcome LIbby!!! When's her first blog post? :)
I know that Libby is going to be an amazing blogger herself.
Congratulations! I am so excited that I can't think of anything to say except that! Wow!
Von, it's more like, what is going to be her blog name?
Let's hold a contest!!!!
Hope everyone's doing well!
Yea! a girl. Let the drama and eye rolling begin. No. She'll be lovely just like her mom. too bad you don't live down the street anymore so my girls could babysit and spoil the hell out of her.
Daughters are the best (for dads anyway).
Salutations and felicitations to ya, Libby! Ya done got yerself launched!
And congratulations to ye weary Knights Who No Longer Say TBD!
Much continued joy to all!
Excellent news!!! All happiness and congratulations to you and TLB, and WELCOME Libby!! We've been waiting for you for a long time.
Welcome, little one. So glad you made it.
Brando and TLB: You are now the knights who say "Libby-Libby-Libby-Libby-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z'nourrwringmm.
I have to say, the last week has had me reliving the coming of the man-cub. Good times.
and Libby, WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF TOMORROW(if you look at the time zones)!
Awesome. I am so happy for you guys. Libby is an excellent name!
Uh, when you get a second, I got this picture of your dad I can't wait to show you.
Congratulations from a long-time lurker!
love the name
Thanks everyone. It was a fun day today. TLB is recovering well and Libby is just a spectacular addition to our lives. She's so sweet and already throwing off smiles (even though we know those are involuntary, they still rock).
I hope to post some pictures tomorrow or Thursday.
Congratulations from a long time lurker.
Now it is time for the poop! The pooping of your lives!
Involuntary smiles are some of my favorite smiles. Congratulations! Daughters rock. I recommend them.
Oh, the joy that awaits the three of you! Aggravation too, but worth every minute. Congratulations.
And this is somewhat timely, too.
Congratulations! I'm very happy for you.
Chuckles, this is a family blog now! Clean up your language!
Yippee! Aunt Bossy says Welcome Libby!
That's got to be the most chill--and gorgeous--newborn I've seen. She looks so wise and knowing. She's all, "Birth? Whatevs." You guys are in serious trouble.
she's so beautiful!!
She's so gorgeous, guys!
You both done good.
What a sweet looking baby girl. She looks like she's all ready to play some video games and watch the Cubs.
She looks nonplussed. "THESE are my parents? Sheesh!"
She looks more like:
You take a photo of me again Pops, and I break that camera when I get enough strength.
What a cutie!
What a beautiful babe. She does indeed look like an old soul.
eeeeee ooooh awwwww.
that is the textual tendering of the sounds I just made. It wasn't pretty or dignified.
"Your baby is cute as a fluff ball!" --Max
"I can't wait to see the baby."
Aww, she's adorable! Looks like she's listening very attentively to all the advice and wisdom from Mommy and Daddy. Obviously brilliant.
She's super cute, so she's clearly getting her looks from mommy.
libby looks great! however, the look suggests that she is not pleased with your subjecting her to intense pulses of light
I didn't know you guys were having a baby!
So, they like have a baby and then never post again. Man.
What's that about?!
I know, I know AG. We've had baby and company and lack of sleep, but I'll be back today.
wow is she cute and adorable
Congratulations! I've been silently following your baby journey for a while. I know what it feels like when it takes longer than expected to have a child. All the worry, concern and hope is totally worth it in the end.
