It's raining babies

While Mother Nature has really shown us the crazy this week, she was also kind enough to bring two sweet new babes into the world as well. On Monday, my friend Kaly and her husband Rick welcomed Ann Emerson to the world. Annie is a long little thing, and it's clear from the pictures and stories on Kaly's blog that they are head over heels for that six pounds of sweetness. 

On Wednesday, my long-time friend Kara and her husband Chris welcomed Sullivan Christopher to the world, just in time for him to experience his very first Midwestern tornado warning. Sullivan, lucky dog, will be going home to two big sisters, Riley and Delaney. I would by lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to the stories that are to come out of the Lydon household. Riley will surely mother the heck out of him, and Delaney, well, she will likely just heckle him.

While I am beyond excited about Kaly's and Kara's new little bundles of joy, I must say that I will miss being pregnant with these two wonderful girls. This was Kaly's first pregnancy, so I was occasionally called upon for advice, which I found to be flattering and affirming, but mostly alarming. Kara, on the other hand, has been around the old pregnancy block before, and it was extremely comforting to share this pregnancy with her as well (Mary Clare and Delaney are less than two months' apart). I could -- and can -- always depend on Kara to provide reasonable answers and advice. And when you're pregnant, that kind of sensibility and support is priceless. 

And so I send my best to Annie, Sullivan and the amazing people they get to call mom and dad. Baby Lindh can't wait to meet all of you.


  1. Oh, Debbie...aren't you sweet?? Thanks so much for the shout-out to Sullivan!! I, too, have enjoyed sharing this miraculous event called pregnancy with you and look forward even more to mothering our second children together. Can't wait until baby Lindh makes his/her arrival...he's/she's entering a pretty special family and is a lucky little one!
    Love ya!

  2. You made me cry! You are absolutely the sweetest! And if you think your advice giving is over with the pregnancy, you are SORELY mistaken, sister! You don't know what kind of floodgates you opened with your readily available wisdom.
