Introducing Bebe Deux

Presenting, the newest member of the Baldwin Babes... Laura Kathleen

After a long saga (which I will detail later), she arrived on February 28, 2015 at 9:33 p.m.

She is 8 lbs, 2 oz and 20 inches long; blue eyes, black (?) hair and APGAR scores of 9 and 9

She was 41 weeks, 2 days at birth; very serious, snuggly and sleepy in first 24 hours out

Her nicknames currently include: Lady Laura, Ladybug, Concerned Citizen of the World, Grumpy Cat

Mother and Father are ecstatic! Sister is mildly ambivalent.

Welcome, darling Laura! You are dearly, dearly loved!


  1. 1. I love how she's looking at you in these pictures!
    2. At first, I was all "You nicknamed your daughter Grumpy Cat?!?!" ...and then I saw the last pic of her - yup. Grumpy Cat expression (but oh so much cuter on her!)
    3. Can't wait to hear more about Grace's ambivalence ;)

  2. What a beautiful gift to your family, Julie! What a beautiful gift to the world! I haven't heard a little one named Laura in quite some time - I think it's very lovely. I hope you are recovering well.

    1. I agree it's a lovely name. Well worth a comeback. ;-)

      Congratulations on your sweet baby girl! I hope you're both well.

  3. glad the wait is over - another beautiful daughter, glad Dad was able to take off and be there for and with you. you could always nickname her Kat in relation to her middle name. Ladybug is cute also. big sister hopefully will take to her and become her protector - might be hard to adjust not being the center of attention and love from mom and dad.

    Oh Julie, what a lovely addition to your family! She's just as precious as her big sister. GOD has certainly blessed you and Will, again! We love you all!!!

  5. congrats! shes beautiful! love that sister is ambivalent! In the family picture, it looks like will did the delivering.....

  6. She's so lovely! It's funny how I can already see a sisterly resemblance between her and Grace. Also, her grumpy "What is the world and why am I out in it?" faces are cracking me up.

  7. Yay baby Laura!! Grace's face cracks me up!!

  8. Congratulations!! Praise God! She is beautiful, and it looks like she is smiling at you in that first pic. :-)
