We Love Lucy

Great leaping dairy cows and sweet raspberry jello.
Lucy Laree Tolman was born at 4:17 PM on June 20th, 2007. Her parents arrived at St. Joseph Medical Center at 6 AM, and the Pitocin was started around 7:30. Thankfully, Becky received her epidural just a couple hours later, so the majority of the labor was relatively painless. A little bit after four, Becky was told to push. And push she did. Becky, somehow, with the stern resolve of a Norwegian seamstress, and in blatant violation of several of Newton’s laws, squeezed an 8 pound 1 ounce baby out of her sacred orifice without any cutting at all.
Lucy has 2 blue eyes, a wisp of dark hair, a hardy appetite, and head shaped like a yam. Actually, her head has already started to mold itself back into a more human shape.
Enough words. Here she is.

All 20 inches.
Interesting. Very Interesting.
The glorious, triumphant goddess of fertility.
The Fantastic-er Four
Sam does love to hold her,
but the statement, "don't touch her eyes"
is going to be a theme in the household.
