I lied.

In my last post I led you all to believe I didn't know when our baby would be born.
I lied.
I was induced yesterday and we are now four!
I will post the story and pictures after I have a nap, but for now I'll let you know that
Brooklyn Adia Franks
Born: October 12, 2006 @5:40pm
6 lbs 13 oz
21 inches long

Has joined our family. We're thrilled, but next time there won't be a baby pool cuz you guys were way more right than I expected, (an overdue girl), and we will be trying for another as Nick needs a son!
Ciao for now.

What a beautiful name! Thank Nick for calling - sorry the cell dropped the call before we got finished talking! I expect to see pictures really soon but I can't wait the 12 days until we see you all in person! Take care and rest lots.

What does Belle think of her new little sister?

Heidi said...

Congratulations! I have to agree that you have picked the greatest name. (I am a little partial to that as I too have a Brooklyn). Little girls are the best!

Congrats Amanda, Nick and Belle. As for trying for a boy... My aunt tried 6 times for a girl. She had five boys then she finally got her girl. I don't know if you want to be pregnant that many times before you get a boy. Wow. If so then all the power to ya. I am very happy for you .
