congratulations, lisa!


Here is Lisa holding Margaret Valentine Clark, who was born yesterday Jan. 3rd, at 1:03 p.m.. She's 7.7 lbs (our smallest baby!) and is very healthy and pink. She's a very good baby. Very quiet. We are thrilled!

Lisa can blog later about the delivery, but she did an amazing job. It was a fantastic delivery and Lisa feels great.

If you would like to leave her a message, please do so here. Even if you don't really know her. She would love that!

Gorgeous baby, and Lisa, you are not allowed to look that fabulous so soon after delivery!

And in the words of our nurse after they weighed Madison. . ."Oh, I LOVE seven, seven!"

I hearby award you the gold medal for delivery! (Who said "there aren't any awards!"?)

AzĂșcar said...

Congrats Lisa! Special congrats to Topher because witnessing a labor is harder than actually delivering. Right?

Hip hip hooray for Margo! We can't wait to meet this newest Valentine-Clark.

You are both so stunningly lovely! Oh, and L was also a 7 lb 7 oz baby -- Margo's got a great future ahead :)

NicksMom said...

Only Lisa would have her make-up all perfect and look so gorgeous! I don't know who is prettier you or the baby! I am so happy for you. Lot's of love! Oh, and send the boys on over any time. They let me know in no uncertain terms that no one is to come to your house for three months!

Kacy said...

I just have one question: Why did you lie to me about being pregnant?

Emily said...

Congratulations! She is beautiful and so, so perfect.

Jennifer Latimer said...

Shawn said...

Ohhhh, how I LOVE babies! Your little one is soooo beautiful and reminded me of my kids---with long dark hair...

By the time I get out to Utah again, she will be sitting up, probably.

That makes me sad...

Congrats! You are beautiful and creat beautiful children!,

Shawn said...

Oh, and I spelled "create" wrong----I hate that!!

Love you guys...

Josh said...

CONGRATS! She is darling we can't wait to meet her. And when you come home, Tivo has a new episode of Friday Night Lights for you to watch during a late night feeding.

All is well in the world.

I took the "even if you don't really know her" as a personal invitation to comment.

Congratulations! Beautiful picture, 2 beautiful girls!

Andrea said...

Hey Lisa,
Blog stalker here. I know you but you don't know me (Marty/Richard Patch's sister). Love you and your husbands blog- so darn funny. Congrats on your new little one! And milk that help all you can...you know the drill... the RS will bring you more casserole's if you fake a cough. :)
And you do look fab in your photo.

Erika Gunn said...

Yay Lisa and Chris! She's gorgeous. I can't believe you have 5...I am too scared to have 1!
I really wish that we lived closer to each other. That way, I could kiss that sweet baby or yours and we could start our own theatre company with Campbell and Latimer too.

compulsive writer said...

Yay! She's lovely and so are you Lisa. I'm so happy you're not pregnant anymore.

I hope she's a good sleeper!

Scott M. Stringham said...

Congrats, guys! One more mouth to feed = more food stamps. Yay!

Really, I love kids; you guys are lucky to have another.

Lyle said...

Para bems! Any time a baby comes into a good family is a good thing. Beign cute [the baby] only makes the moment even better.

cynthia said...

She's beautiful. I love the dark hair! Congratulations on both the new baby and being able to effortlessly tie your shoes again (I am still undecided about which I enjoy more when I am done being pregnant).

Love you!!

Am'n2deep said...

I don't really know you, but I read somewhere that you really love messages from strangers. Technically, we did met at lunch the other day--b.'s cousin. You were a hoot!

So anyway...

Good for you and baby Margaret! She looks beautiful and so do you!
Congrats!!!

Am'n2deep said...

I meant, 'meet'.

(So much for good first impressions!) :P~

katheryn said...

You are both just beautiful. Congratulations and a big hug!!!

Ok, you're at five. I haven't even started yet. We got a dog this weekend. I think that's a big step for me.

You get an award for SuperMom. Girlfriend, don't you know your awesomeness raises the bar for me?????

love to all of you!

SusieQ said...

Congratulations!! What a beautiful baby girl. Glad to hear everything went well with the delivery. I've been reading your blog and also your husband's. Sure enjoyed your movie "Stalking Santa."

Denise Roylance said...

Congrats! I'm so happy for you guys! She is beautiful, I love all that hair!

Hm. I think when I'm ready to have my baby, I'll eat some crispy honey chicken. Maybe that'll do it. Congratulations!

Gina said...

She is a yummy, yummy baby! You're the BEST big sistah!

Leisha said...

She sure is purdy! Congrats!

The Garden Maiden said...

Fresh from heaven and oh so beautiful!

(Lisa you look more like big sister rather than mommy of five in this picture and just post birth!!! Mom's do get a burst of celestial energy on this occasion, but really girlfriend.)

Julie said...

And to think you were at lunch just the day before....

She's gorgeous! (And so are you!) Congratulations to all of you.
