  2. so cute! sorry about your looong labor...i know how that is! can't wait to meet her!!!

  3. You beat me in the length of the labor by 3 hours, way to go!!! :) So glad to see pictures, she's beautiful! Again, congratulations.
    Enjoy every second.

    Congrats to you both!
    Good job, new mommy!

  5. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you both. I'm praying for you - Sarah B.

  6. You are so amazing, Bonnie. I am still in awe of what I witnessed today. Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me be present for the awesome event. You and Travis were a beautiful team. I hope you are getting even a little, tiny bit of sleep tonight. Remember to take naps when you can and to have as much patience as possible with the nursing. It can be so hard.

    One of your best skills during your long, hard labor was using your voice to tell us all what you needed. I want to encourage you to keep using that even now after your baby is here. You will have many loving visitors in the coming days and it will be fun to see them and show off your gorgeous girl. Just remember to use your voice from time to time to say, "Hey, I'm really glad you could come, but I have to sleep/nurse now." Keep advocating for yourself, just like you did during labor to perfection.

    You are a superhero, lady. Congratulations. Can't wait to see that baby in the next few days. We'll be over soon...

  7. Welcome to the world Miss Lydia Ann; it's a grand place!! You picked great parents!!

    Congrats Trav and Bonnie!! Now the adventure really begins.

    Love and kisses from Virginia Beach!!

    BTW - Trav, Alden has discovered Mentos and Diet Coke! That's all I hear about now!!

  8. Congratulations!! What a beautiful addition to a beautiful and wonderful family.

  9. Congrats on the new arrival of Lydia Ann! Sorry we missed Trav's call on Sunday morning (we were at church).

    Enjoy each moment, they grow up so fast:) I can't believe our first is going to be 9! We have no doubt that she'll definitely be "daddy's little girl"!

    We're counting down...about 90 days left until our little one enters the world.

    Hopefully, we can see Lydia soon. We'll certainly let you rest a bit first:)

    Angel & Ryan, Emily, Ryan II, Joseph, and baby
