    New pics are not up yet, but will be soon....

    Reese Helen Voliva, born 11/06/08 at 7:57 AM Central (planned C-sections are AWESOME -- both from the father and mother!) -- 7 pounds 3 ounces, 21 inches long. Nice, long finger built for pulling a trigger!

    As I have put in my e-mails to friends in family... mother, baby and big sis Reagan are doing great. Dad is trying to figure out how life will be with three women at home...

    John, I lived through two daughters, so you'll do just fine.

    Congrats, John.

    One of life's great experiences. We have two daughters and, now, two granddaughters. Your not done yet! Good planning to have this new baby at the end of the season. She should be ready to travel by spring.

    Bone.... definitely not a mistake on planning. We have to go through in vitro so Tara allowed me the approximate time to do the implantation! Not a coincidence that the little one will be 8 months old at Indiana State Shoot and 9 months old for the Grand...

    The second time around is pretty cool. Everything seems more relaxed and we can appreciate the first days more.... She is absolutely beautiful and a spitting image of her sister at birth.

    Thanks everyone for the well-wishes!

    John

    Congratulations John. But, beware on the three ladies at home - you are seriously outnumbered!

    Reagan and Tara have one now (I do also)... I am thinking I will get Reese one before the end of the target year -- probably at the Grand... 4 Lifetime members in one family!

    John,

    Congratulations on your new baby girl. My wife gave birth at 8:06 this morning, Saturday November 8th to a beautiful baby girl. Hope our girls get to shoot together in the future.

    See you at State.

    I recommend a BT-99 with the stock cut short. I also suggest using light 7/8 oz loads until she is at least 5 years old. She may also need your guidance on selecting the lady trophy or the sub junior trophy.
