#1: Isabelle!!! Author: Biff83, Location: FloridaPosted: Sat Sep 01, 2007 11:19 pm ---- At last.
Isabelle arrived today 1 September 2007 at 5:31PM ET. 8 lbs, 8 ozs, 20 inches long with a nice head of black hair. Mom will be a little sore for a while but she, baby Isabelle, Daddy Matt, nonna and nonno are all doing fine. I'll post some pics tomorrow or Monday. We're whipped. We've been at the hospital since 4:30 this morning and need to crash.
Congratulations!!! I have been thinking about you all day! And Carole and I and Riccardo and I were online about the time your daughter was giving birth and talking about it!
Can't wait to see the pictures!
Give her our love and big kisses to Isabelle! (And to everyone else too..)

(The stork says 'Sorry, had to do a detour and was a bit late and my apologies about the blue ribbon but its definately Isabelle in the basket')
So glad to hear the good news
Congratualtions to everyone
The waiting has been a worrying time for all the family (and I think that includes us too at Gente) but now that you've had Isabelle in your arms and I bet given her more than a few kisses I know you'll believe that all that worrying has been worth it.
Big Hugs to All xx

Congratulations Biff to you and your whole family. We were all on pins and needles waiting to hear from you. Go enjoy (and spoil) your new granddaughter. Start by showing her the family tree!
Biff, a sincere welcome to the newest member of your family!!!! Beautiful name for a little angel
I'm sure you and your wife are very proud grandparents
#15: Re: Isabelle!!! Author: Biff83, Location: FloridaPosted: Sun Sep 02, 2007 10:37 pm ---- Isabelle is even prettier today than she was yesterday. Although not born on the 31st of August I do think you all were right that her gg grandfather Peppino played the role of guardian angel in bringing her safely to us.
Mom and Isabelle are scheduled to come home tomorrow afternoon so we'll try to download the pics from our digital camera on the kids' computer and post a few then.
From all of us, hugs, kisses and God Bless for your prayers.
