Introducing Lucia Therese

Lucia Therese made her dramatic appearance on Sunday, May 17th at 8:31 PM. 

She is the largest of our babies in terms of weight at 8 pounds, 1 ounce but the shortest in length at just over 19 inches, a whole 2-3 inches shorter than her two siblings! She is a precious, beautiful, content little bundle and we are so happy that she is finally here!

If I'm feeling brave, I just may post her birth story in the coming weeks. It's a pretty good one.

Thank you for all the love, prayers, and support! She was certainly worth the wait!

P.S. We've had a lot of questions about our baby's name, so 
here is a pronunciation guide: Lucia (loo-see-uh) Therese (te-rez).


  1. I kept stopping by to see if she was born yet. A beautiful name for a beautiful baby. Congrats to you and Paul. I hope she doesn't keep you up too much at night. The very best to you and family!

  2. Congratulations!! She is adorable!

  3. Congratulations, Monica! It's now 2 boys and 3 girls in the house. Yay!

  4. Congrats! I'm happy to hear everyone is happy and healthy!

  5. Congratulations!!! I kept checking to see if there was an update! I'm so happy she is here! I love hearing birth stories (they are each so unique!), so I hope you do feel brave enough to post about it. :)
