So many of you have e-mailed me privately to find out how Valerie is doing so I am now very delighted to announce:
IT'S A GIRL
Mother and baby doing great. The name is fluctuating between Julia and Nichole. She arrived at 9:55 this A.M. and weights in at 8lbs. and is 23 inches.
We are all thrilled.

YAYYAYYAY!!!! LOTS OF HUGS AND CONGRATULATIONS!
02-20-2002, 02:13 PM
Thanks everyone for all the well wishes. Valerie will be excited to read them when she gets home tomorrow. She had a pretty rough time refusing to take any pain medication and she is pretty small to have such a big girl.
JULIA it is..... I am chuckling at all the imput for the name since Valerie wouldn't give my husband and me a vote. It was her and DH alone.
Sneezles, say it isn't so 6'5" for Julia yikes!!!!
This will definitely be a BB baby.
Love to all,
p.s. Mamasue you live pretty close to me one of these days I am going to pop in on you and make you teach me graphics. That was adorable.
02-20-2002, 02:39 PM
Let's hope not but 6' would be great...start that girl learning to dribble ASAP! ;)
02-20-2002, 02:44 PM
ANOTHER CONGRATULATIONS TO VAL AND D.H VIRGINIA AND D.H ENJOY BABY JULIA!
02-20-2002, 06:57 PM
WELCOME TO THE WORLD JULIA!!
Congratulations to the proud parents, grandparents and family!!!
Julia is a beautiful name and of course, I think baby girls are just wonderful, since I have one of my own! :)
And Val--you have my complete respect, with not taking any pain meds!
Congrats and best wishes!

02-21-2002, 09:27 AM
WELCOME BABY JULIA! :)
02-21-2002, 11:07 AM
Congratulations on your new little bundle of love!
02-21-2002, 04:06 PM
thank you all so much for your thoughts and wishes...how wonderful to see all of these messages!
just a little correction...Julia is 8 pounds and 14 ounces. (and yes, she is indeed a tall 23 inches long...)
We loved both names and had a hard time deciding...perhaps our next baby girl (??) will be named Nicole (Nikki for short).
I went into labor at 7:00 pm Tuesday night, and left for the hospital at 6:00 am when contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. Wanted to spend most of my labor at home. I was just about fully dilated when I got to triage, so I started pushing at around 7am. Then the little bun popped out at 9:55am.
She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. DH is in love with her too. He was wonderful throughout the whole process - don't know how women did this without their DHs in the "old days." (Maizeyoats did it that way four times!)
I will see what I can do about getting a picture posted, but I am not sure.
Thanks again everyone!
02-21-2002, 09:12 PM
Can't wait to see the pictures!! Wishing the best to all on the birth of little Julia!!!

Valchemist, I hope you DH and Julia, are doing well. I'm wishing Maiseyoats and Grandpa well too. You all must be so excited.
