It is with a very full heart that I ask you to please join me in welcoming the very beautiful and very sweet
to our wonderful world!
Shelby was born at 4:48pm on 12/12/12.
She weighs 8 pounds, 3 ounces and is 20" long.
Dee, Brad, and Buddy are over the moon excited, and everyone is doing well.
It was just over a year ago that Dee and I met for a drink after work. You can read my post about it here. While the post portrays it as a simple and lighthearted wine-tasting, the real truth is that it was much more than that. Dee confided in me that evening her struggles with infertility and the great lengths she and Brad had gone to in an effort to add to their family. I felt tears building up, and I couldn't help but to cry along with Dee as she recounted their challenges. So there we were in Georges Brasserie, two girls crying into their glasses of Beaujolais Nouveau. With that history, you can guess my supreme excitement when I learned that they were expecting! It was truly a "hallelujah" moment. Life is so good.
Shelby, you are one very loved girl, and I can't wait to meet you! Congratulations to Dee and Brad!
Lots of love,
April (A. Liz Adventures)
