Becca Bramell is in the house....

Well, we finally have our baby girl. She decided to be punctual and come right on her due date!! The doc said only 6% of babies are actually born on their due dates, funny huh.

Here's the short version: Rebecca Leigh Bramell was born at 9:29 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22 via emergency c-section. She is 6 lbs, 9 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.
The long version is that my water broke on Tuesday at 1:20--while I was at work, of course. Nothing like a little excitement to get everyone riled up. Then I went off to the clinic, where they sent me right on downstairs to the hospital and admitted me. I "only" had about 2 hours of hard, horrible labor before the doc decided that Rebecca wasn't handling it well. She had three different episodes where her heart rate went way down. It was really scary when it seemed like the entire hospital staff came running into our room at once to check us.

At about 8:55 the doc said he wanted to get her out, and at 9:29 he did. It was so fast and unexpected. You all know what a planner I am---this was NOT in the plan. But we are so thankful she is fine and all is well.

Here are some photos of her. Of course, she's perfect. Please feel free to tell us you agree.


  1. OH she is beautiful!!! I am so happy for you and can't wait to meet our newest Hog!

  2. Rhonda you are right, she is perfect right down to the lungs. You can tell by looking that her lungs are in perfect condition. Love you guys, and can't wait to come over for a visit.

  3. She's so beautiful! You just had to join the C-section crew...ha, ha! I'm so glad that you all are doing great. I can't wait to see her in person!

  4. Congratulations! She is precious. Cherish every moment. They grow up so fast. Rayleigh graduates from preschool on Thursday.

  5. Congratulations Rhonda and Lee! Enjoy and treasure every second. It seems like last week we were taking pictures at the hospital of Makinley and now she's tap dancing, jumping on the trampoline and going to preschool... Blink and they're not little anymore. We all love you and wish you the best! Let us know if you need anything. Can't wait for you to come visit! Love ~ Chuck, Sherry, Cori, Lesli, Matt and Makinley
