Reagan Waller

This is Amy, posting for Mandi.

who delivered a beautiful baby girl at 11:21 this morning. I walked in minutes before the doctor (who was greeted by laboring mother with a loud "I Love You")...and felt blessed to witness the birth. Mandi was amazing in managing the pain without an epidural. She is my hero. And she made me cry.

This morning "Baby Girl Waller" did not have a name.
But I just got off the phone (4:56 pm) and they decided on Reagan.

She is a big girl at 21 inches long , 8 pounds 9 ounces


She has gorgeous skin and is extremely alert...already looking around to see what everyone is doing. And Reagan is already joining the ranks of Dad-loving girlies. Her eyes first opened when Nate came over to the scale and spoke to her. She truly recognized his voice.

The Proud Big Sisters

who were equally delighted with the Birth Day mini cupcakes (London insisted that their baby would need some cake to celebrate being born).

Welcome to the family, Reagan.
You are a definite Beauty.
Congratulations Mandi (you rock!) & Nate! I love you guys!

She is so PRETTY! And like Amy said very alert. I don't remember your other girls having that much hair. Like I said, OH SO PRETTY! Congratulations: Corey, Rachel, & Evan

Yay! I'm so glad you posted for them. She is beautiful and I agree with London that births should be celebrated with mini cupcakes.
