Amelia Lindley Dilger

Amelia Lindley Dilger

Born today at 2:01am. 9 lbs 6 oz, 20 1/2 inches. Erin’s labor wasn’t a picnic, but she’s doing fine now, and so is our new baby girl.

Happy Birthday, Amelia. And you too, Madelyn.

Update 10/27 9:45pm: Everything is going great. We’re hoping the girls will come home Wednesday morning. More pictures on Flickr. Best wishes and our thanks to all who’ve commented.

Update 10/29 11:15am: Amelia and Erin came home today. Both are super, and so far Madelyn is adjusting well.

    Oh Bradley–Congratulations–and give Erin a big hug for me. Amelia is such a beautiful name, and I am sure that she and her sister will find many refreshing activities–and have a beautiful sister-to-sister relationship. Nothing beats that. I am so happy for you, and I will teach, so worry not! Bonnie

    Amelia is a great name. It was on out list too. 2:01 is a great time to be born. I’m glad everyone’s well. Sorry about the tough labor. I suppose you’re going to skip the Halloween Concert this year.

  22. Lisa K. says:

    She is beautiful and so is her name. Welcome, Amelia!

  23. Doug Huff says:

    Congratulations! Cute kid – and I like the continuity of the full name: all three names have three letters (I, E, and L) in common.

  24. Sonya & family says:

    Yea! I cannot believe the girls will share a b’day! How rare is that? I also cannot believe Erin had over 9 lbs. of baby in there! We’ll stop by soon (for a minute) just to say hi & bring a dish in a week or two. I’ll be in AL from Oct. 30 to Nov. 8. If you need me to keep Madelyn when I’m home, I’d be glad to. Congrats! We wish for a sleeping, nursing champ for you!

  25. Dorothee says:

    Congratulation to you and Erin and Madelyn!
    I hope mother and daughter get a lot of rest and pampering.
    They sure need that.
    Call us if you need help with diaper change, baby sitting or anything else.
    I mean it!

  26. Mollie says:
