...and introducing Baby McGee as "baby" July 13, 2016 7:43 AM   Subscribe

Hey! Say hello to Eyebrows McGee's brand new daughter, Anna Lucia. Seven pounds, five ounces; nineteen inches bow to stern; conspicuous lack of eyebrows but we'll let that slide until at least Q4. Here's mother and daughter, chillin'.

Sorry but that baby's a Melanie Brienne Gibson if I've ever seen one.

That's a good-looking baby. I'm going to go ahead and write up a performance plan for the eyebrows, cortex. Q4, you say? What are we looking at, 50% improvement?

Congratulations to all!!

In the form of ONE ASYMMETRICAL BROW, I presume.

Congratulations, Eyebrows! She is beautiful. May her reign be long and her justice swift.

Bit of a drama llama, tough pregnancy all through and made her appearance a couple weeks early in a high-speed c-section my husband almost didn't make it to the hospital for! But we are over the moon and her two big brothers could not be more delighted!

It's like she heard I finished Kon-Mari-ing the house and figured that was her cue.

Hello, Anna Lucia. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, Anna Lucia—God damn it, you've got to be kind.

Current MeFi Baby Count: 29.

Congrats Eyebrows and Dear Theodosia, as well as her siblings Hercules and Mulligan. Here's hoping that the birth story doesn't beat out "I had to miss seeing Hamilton with the OBC" as a way to guilt her when it becomes necessary.

Loo-sha, the English way, but we also like loo-see-ya (Spanish) and loo-chee-ya (Italian), so any is fine! We knew picking it she'd be hearing it all three ways so we'd better like them all. Anna is like Hannah, not like they say it in Frozen. :)

I probably have more free time than you, Mrs. Pt, because my husband has been with the other kids so they send the baby back to the nurses between feedings because I'm still in bed from the surgery, and she came so early and fast there's nobody here to visit me until tomorrow! And this is my third breastfeeding go-round so at least I know what to do ... I remember the first being a lot more time consuming!
