Mazel tov! And good work on that fast labor and delivery. Can't wait to hear the birth story and see some pictures.


Great work Linda! What a happy, happy day!

That was fast! Congratulations to the entire family! Charlotte is a gorgeous name. Congrats congrats congrats!!


Yay! I should have known you would have such a fast labor. I absolutely love her name and I can't believe how BIG she is! E& L are big sisters:)


Woohoo!!! God Bless you, Indigo family. And can I just say "youch!" :)

Wow. Thanks be to God!



Welcome to the world, Charlotte! Good job mama, congratulations many times over! Can't wait for pics and more updates!


Congratulations! So many coincidences (not that you care.) Today is my birthday and both of my kids were exactly 10 lbs. 1 oz and 22" long. Charlotte was also our girls name, but we had two boys.

I'm so happy for you all.


CONGRATS! See, baby Charlotte is accomodating already. You said you were worried about a 9/11 birth. She held off for just over 2 hours.

FWIW- Maya was born on 9/10. I was in the hospital (9/11) trying to relax and rest while bawling my eyes out because the only things on TV were memorials.

Little girls, little girls, everywhere I turn I can see them.
Little girls, little girls...

Sorry, Annie.


Three sisters! How wonderful! Congratulations to you all!


Excellent news! What a joy:)


I go to bed and you're in labor - wake up and you're hours into a new baby. Wow! And congratulations! Such wonderful, exciting news! (And OMG, that size, that speed - yeesh!!!)


Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures and I can't wait to hear about E and L's reaction to their new baby sister. I'm so happy for you guys.


Congratulations to all! Love the name, and I can't wait hear more!

I just checked your blog to tell you that I was going out of town and you better hurry to have that baby.

I am so happy for you! I never would have guessed 10 lbs. I felt bad that I had put such a big baby on my original guess.

Wonderful news and good job waiting until the 12th.


Yeah! Congrats!! So glad to read that baby Indigo has made her appearance. Hope everyone is doing well and can't wait to read more about the adventures of L, E and baby C!


Congratulations! What a speedy arrival too!


Congratulations!! Welcome to the world Charlotte.


Yay! Big huge congrats!! More coincidences (with such an audience I guess they are bound to happen) Today is my E's b-day as well (six... sniff sniff) and my delivery with my L sounds very similar to to yours. Four hour start to finish, going in demanding pain meds only to be told it's too late. Youch!

So happy for you and yours. What a wonderful day.


Congratulations! I love the name!

Today Wendy

I love the name Charlotte!! I love that I was wrong and she's a girl! I think Linda is my hero (10 POUNDS??? No drugs??)! YAY Hooray and welcome baby!!!! This news just makes my day. Can't wait to hear the birthstory andE and L's reaction to a new sister.

Yea!!! Congratulations on the lovely, healthy girl and a terrific labor. Blessings to the happy family.

And, by the way, 10 lbs? Overachiever. Well done.


I'm really glad to hear that both mom and baby are doing well. Congratulations.



And of course you had a girl...because I was convinced you were having a boy, and I am always wrong!!


Holy cow, that's a huge baby!! As big as my six-week-old!


Three girls! Oh, what a blessing! I can't wait to see pictures so I can use more exclamation points!


Oh my gosh! Absolutely wonderful! Cute name! Thrilled to hear everyone is doing good! Take good care!

Looog time reader,



Congratulations to the Indigo Girl Family!!!

Welcome to the world, BIG baby girlie Charlotte! :) Did she make it on her due date? And I love how you missed 9/11 :)

I can't wait to hear about the big sisters and their reaction to the little one. Just yesterday I was thinking girl. It was boy for the whole time, but yesterday I thought, nope, it's a girl...

I can't wait to hear how it all (all 4 hours) went down.

Congrats again. Enjoy your miracle :)

Sarah in Ottawa

Congratulations! She has a great birthday -- same day as awesome husband and my childhood best friend!


Oh, and nothing makes a drug-free delivery of a giant baby less super-hero-y.


Congratulations!! So happy for you and the whole famliy. The "big" girls will adore Charlotte. Glad for you for the fast labor and quick pushing (although how you pushed out a 10lb baby I'll never know!!) All the best.....


Congratulations Linda and A! What an amazing labor!


Congrats on missing the 11th! A nice compliant baby maybe?
I laughed so hard reading your quote of I just gave birth to a toddler.... that is exactly how I felt 2 weeks ago when I gave birth to my baby girl weighing 10 pounds 8 oz... but the great news is that she is my best nighttime sleeper ever... hopefully Charlotte will be the same for you!
Congratulations, can't wait to hear how much E and L love her.


Wow! Talk about timing! You got the first day of pre-school in, AND you missed 9-11! And you came within hours of your due date. Damn, you're good! And yay! On the fast labor!




Congratulations!! Hooray for fast labours and safe deliveries.
I'm in shock that she's a girl- I love the name.
My girlfriends daughter is named Charlotte but they call her Charlie for short because she is a little tomboy.
Charlotte already outweighs Lachlan by 3lbs and he is one month already!!!


Excllent birth day Miss Charlotte! Congratulations E,L Linda and




Fantastic news! I bow down to you for giving birth to a toddler. My friend had a 10 pounder also. The great thing was you didn't feel like you were going to break her since she was so big! Just have to remind yourself that she is a newborn and not holding up her own head yet! BIG CONGRATS from the other side of the state!!!


Congratulations, I'm so happy for you and your family! And I love the name - it was one of our top choices, too, but we have yet to produce a girl!


WOW...congrats!! I don't think my 5 week old is 10 lbs yet!!!! Can't wait to hear what the grils think of her!


CONGRATULATIONS! I am so thrilled for you! What wonderful news (as everyone else, I have been checking for news!). LOVE the name :)


Awe I can already hear them fighting over clothes before school starts. And I can already see Charlotte trying to copy everything L and E are doing. And I can already hear them making plans to have a sister reunion to NY city when they are adults because they are missing eachother so badly. It's perfect. Charlotte is an absolute lovely name. Although she will proably become C soon in the blog world. I will smile knowing how charming her real name is.
Happy hospital food!


Congratulations Linda and family! Such wonderful news!


Congrats to you and the family. I'm sure the girls will love their new baby sister :) Charlotte is one of my favorite names for a girl!


Congratulations! I am doing a happy dance at my desk.


Congratulations! So glad to hear everything went well.


Welcome sweet baby Charlotte!


CONGRATS!!! I am glad that you signed up for that speedy delivery!!! Best Wishes to you, Andrew, E & L, and their new baby sister!! Love the name!~!!

Betty M

C9ongratulations from a lurker!

Jen A

Congratulations, Linda and family! I am so happy for you. I've found you to be a great and inspiring mom to L and E, and I know Charlotte will be just as lucky.


Congratulations, what a wonderful addition to your family. Welcome baby Charlotte!




Delurking to say "wonderful news! yea!" I checked last night before I went to sleep and thought "maybe she'll have her on 9/12 - my husband's birthday!" Indeed!

Miss X

Huge congrats!!! What a lovely name!


Many congratulations!


What wonderful news! Congratulations to you, Andrew, E and L, and welcome to the world Charlotte!


Congratulations on your new baby girl! I love the name! My first child was 9lb, 4 oz so I know just what you mean by giving birth to a toddler! They put him on my chest and he lifted his head and looked at me!

Again, congratulations! I hope the girls have an easy time adjusting to having a new little sister.


Congratulations!! Another princess!!! I was for sure it was a boy! Ha ha! I'm am always wrong.


YAHOO!!!! So glad she's here and all are well! Congratulations!!!!!! I'm thrilled for all of you!

Lisa C.

Awesome! Congrats to the whole family.




Way to go! Love the name Charlotte. So happy for you.


Warmest congratulations on the birth of your new daughter! Lovely name. Glad you are both well. I have three girls and love it: a lot of drama, but a whole lot of fun...
