sorry for the long silence on my end…things have been quite, shall we say, “interesting”. hah!

it was a long, challenging end-of-pregnancy and a pretty harrowing birth (particularly for her momma!), but me and the mister got the greatest gift EVER at the end of it all: our new little baby girl, poppy beatrice. she was finally born on 8/19.

it may continue to be quiet ’round these parts for a little while, as we all get adjusted to our new lives with one another. πŸ™‚

thanks for all your well-wishes and kindnesses. i miss you all tremendously.

    Congratulations Tricia! She’s absolutely gorgeous – so pleased to hear that all is well, and to meet your beautiful wee girl!
    Poppy is such a brilliant name, in fact it’s one I’ve always been fond of, should a little lady choose to bestow herself upon me one day…..

    Lots of love to all three of you, and here’s to a good long, well deserved rest!

    hooray! Poppy is lovely. Your photos remind me of the first morning I woke in hospital after my daughters birth to see her sweet little face through her clear crib and I thought – Yes, finally we are together.

    Congratulations with your sweet babygirl! I’m a big fan of your photos on flickr and blog, and these last day I checked your stream and this blog almost every day, was so curious! Well, you have a beautiful daughter now, and I’m really looking forward to see her in all the beautiful little clothes you made her! Have a lovely time with your little family!

  8. Casey

    OH!!! Tricia–I’m so excited for y’all! She is gorgeous, just like her momma. πŸ˜‰ And I love the name you picked out for her! Poppy is so apropo for someone that is going to be surrounded by such exciting color and design.

    My congratulations to you and your husband! I’m just so happy (I have a big grin on my face right now! ;)!

  9. Anna

    I was just thinking of you yesterday, and wondering if the new little one was here yet. What a sweet face! Congrats!

    Let me be the first to say it here, though I’m sure I won’t be the last: Tricia, she’s GORGEOUS! Look at that pout. I wanna eat her for breakfast. And what a superfantastic name. Believe me, I don’t say that to everyone. Poppy Royal is definitely someone I’d want to be friends with. Congratulations! And we miss you, too. Gobs.

    oh! oh! when i saw on my bloglines queue that you had updated, i started to do a really freakish hand-waving routine. thank you for updating us! your little girl is lovely and i wish i could knit her a sweater.

    yay!!! i’ve been waiting anxiously for the news and here she is – absolutely gorgeous and with the cutest name ever : ) love her pouty lips!

  23. AnnaBananaCupcake

    When I saw these photos on flickr the other day I just gasped and was so excited that Miss Poppy (perfect name by the way) had finally made her debut. I couldn’t help but to think about how fast it all seemed to happen… reading your blog for so long, then hearing about your pregnancy and watching you grow in shape and with the excitement we all felt. I know time will fly and soon enough we will see her in little dresses and tottering around creating magic. I can’t wait! Congratulations from the bottom of my heart.

  24. Summer

    I have been waiting to hear the big news- congratulations, dear! You are such an inspiration and I’m sure your little one will be the most beautiful and fashionable girl! Xoxo.

  27. angiemontreal

    gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, you must be soooo happy and proud! Take your time getting back to us, one look at that little sweetie and how could we not understand!

  28. sarah

    congratulations, tricia! I have to admit, the only thing that stayed my hand from typing and asking “is everything okay?” was worry that maybe something had gone wrong and your silence was grieving. I am SO glad that you both made it through safe and healthy and happy. Congrats again!

  29. Liss

    Congratulations! She’s beautiful, and so are her names. I’m glad all went well. I wish you all well in settling into this new phase of your lives together.

  35. katie

    Wow what a beautiful baby girl! I freaked when I read her name as just the other day, quite possibly the day she was born, I was thinking about what a unique, pretty name Poppy is. I kind of got the chills when I saw her. Anyway thanks for the update and I wish you all the very best. PEACE.

  36. m.bibelot

    i left a comment on one of your photos this morning, but i had to come back because i seriously can’t stop thinking about your little bebe and her wonderful name!! i’m so happy for you and your family!

  37. Laura

    Congratulations, Tricia! Poppy is a lovely little lady, and I’m thrilled for you! Do you check your info*at*bitsandbobbins e-mail? I sent a message there a while back. I think we went to HS together, and I’d love to reconnect once things have settled down at your place.

  38. Tammee

    She is beautiful, beautiful!

    And her name – I really like it. On anyone else Poppy could be a hard name, but somehow with what we know of your vibrant personality, I feel like it really fits. (I know you asked no opinions, but I wanted so much to share how much I am happy for you and your newest addition to the royal family!)

    Congratulations, and it’s nice to have you back online!

  39. lulu
