Congratulations, sweetie. What a beauty. Look at that hair. Oh my God. My girls — blonde as all hell. (I’m Italian to boot.) Y’all are so blessed. I don’t need to tell you to cherish this…..
    Much love, sweetie. *mwah*

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us, especially me. You and Angie (Moody Mama) both have gotten me as close to actually experiencing this as I’m gonna get. (41 is a little late to start, I think. Especially when the Him has been… gelded. lol…)

  17. Vickie

  33. Caitlin

    Congrats on the baby, it took my mom 24 hours of labour to have moi, too. She likes to mention that whenever I’m misbehaving. Looking forward to hearing the whole story when you’re up to it!

  34. mwt

    The Birth of Gabriella Mercedes is an aggressive action – the thrust outward with great impetus of a self from within a body into a new environment.

  35. Hilary

    She’s BEEEEUTIFUL!!! Congratulations! Good job Mama! 24 hours of labor?!?!?! WTF? But, I bet she was worth it.

  38. Jett

    I cannot WAIT to see her in beribboned dogears a couple years down the road. She’ll be the cutest thing, with those chubby cheekses! (not that she already isn’t, I’m just sayin’.)
    And a mess, because she has two big brothers! I just bet they are hella proud.

  43. fran

    And don’t worry, I won’t tell Gabby when she grows up that you tried to use your breast pump to get her out.

  44. Lisa

    Oh Yvonne!! She’s beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous. I’m so happy for you.
    I can’t believe I went to bed 15 minutes too early last night. I would have been one of the first instead of not even making the first 100 people to congratulate you and your family. Congratulations!!!

  54. breathe moxygen

    It all started out so innocently …

    but now I am lost somewhere in MT Plugins world. I haven’t installed any plugins on my blog as of yet and I thought I’d like to check out what they have. First I thought I’d download the manager since…

  55. Jenn

    She looks so serene and regal. I can already see the family dynamics at work… hehe..
    Good luck and God Bless.

  56. tammy

  57. Mindi

    Oh my gosh, she’s just beautiful – not that I’m surprised by that or anything. Congratulations to you, Tony, and the boys!

  58. robyn

    She and Nathan are exactly six months apart to the day! (And he was a 24-hour labor, too — those little 3rd stinkers!)
    She is JUST BEAUTIFUL Yvonne and family! You must be in pink heaven right about now…

  59. Harmony

    She’s so beautiful! You’re a lucky mom and she’s a lucky girl to have such a wonderful family! Hope you’re doing well and I know we’ll see lots more of her!!

  62. keith

    Congratulations Yvonne and Tony, and WELCOME to the blogosphere, young Gabriella!! You *DO KNOW* your mom is gonna hold this over your head until you’re about, oh, forty-something years old, right? ;^D
    Oh, did I mention she’s BEAUTIFUL???

  63. pink lotus

  68. Andreah

    CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so happy for you and your family. She is beautiful, just like momma!

  69. Chasmyn

    wahoo!!!!!! You can see here Mommy’s face in her…and her brothers. For heaven sakes, are you home already? Congratulations, I hope it all went smoothly.

  70. CJ

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! She’s beautiful and won’t it be fun braiding that awesome head of hair in a few years? :) I imagine your “3” boys are being VERY helpful and the youngest ones will protect little sis, cause that’s what big brothers do. Why in no time at all, you’ll have her cradled in one arm, holding a bottle to her mouth, while washing dishes and flipping burgers with the other.
    Enjoy all that MALE help now, maybe you’ll get spoiled along with little Miss Gabriella Mercedes.
    Once again, CONGRATULATIONS Yvonne, give her lots of hugs and spoil her every chance you get. You are so very lucky and she’s so very pretty. *sigh*

  71. Chelle

    Oh, she is just gorgeous Yvonne! You and your hubby sure do make pretty babies. Congratulations!

  72. L. C. Red Ruffansore

    I found the link at Gennie’s Dizzy-Girl…
    Congratulations, Yvonne!
    Such a beautiful little girl!
    Gabriella. May your days be full of love and beauty.
