Congratulations to you and your family! I would be tempted to try to work the feast day into a nickname or some such – but I’m Mexican, so there’s that.
Welcome to the world, Benedicta Maribel! Lovely name for a lovely baby.
Rest up, Mama!
Love the name – always wanted a Benedicta myself. She’s lovely, and happy that all is well.
So, she was just *determined* to make that her birthday, eh? It’s so funny that she just barely squeaked in. And… Congratulations!!!!
All babies are beautiful, Mrs. Fischer, but this one is especially lovely. Enjoy your day wrapped in heated blankets and eating food you didn’t cook. I love her name and she was born on the perfect day! Heartfelt congratulations.
Congratulations! She’s beautiful. God bless your growing family.
Congratulations! What a beautiful baby and she has an awesome name.

Hope you got those heated blankets! If I lived nearby I would definitely bring you some food you didn’t have to cook. Congratulations and many, many blessings!
Congratulations! God bless you, your family, and Benedicta!
She looks like heaven…Ohhhhh what a blessing. I suspect she is named after an epic, Carmelite saint???? 8 lbs 14 oz ouch. You’re a hero!
Congratulations! Hope you’ve got warm blankets and you’re eating some food you didn’t make!
Congrats on little Benedicta. She’s a sweetheart.
Oh, what a beauty! And a beautiful name to suit her. God bless you with peace and serenity for at least a few days!
She is beautiful! I wish I could bring a meal to your family, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
Welcome to your beautiful new daughter.
Congratulations Fisher family on your new baby girl! She’s precious
What a gorgeous baby! Congratulations!
She’s so cute and chubby. Perfection.

Congratulations to you and your beautiful family. Thanks for posting a picture so soon. You will continue to be in my prayers.
Congratulations on a beautiful girl!
She really is very beautiful. Best wishes!
The first baby born on Immaculate Conception! You win a lifetime supply of Miraculous Medals, don’t you? Congrats!
Congratulations! Beautiful baby, beautiful name. I have a friend named Maribel and I find myself finding excuses to mention her in conversation just so I can say her name.
Congratulations! Great name.:)
Congratulations!!! She is so beautiful! What a wonderful day to be born on!!!
Congrats to the whole Fisher Family! She is adorable and what a wonderful birthday she has. Enjoy your new addition to your family. God Bless!
Congratulations!! She is beautiful and you’ve chosen a beautiful name for her! Prayers for your recovery.
“You know, Mrs. Fisher, all babies are beautiful, but this one is really something special. [I wish I could send you some food] that you didn’t cook, and when you’re done, you really must take a nap.”
Welcome, Benedicta Maribel! Nice job, Simcha! May Our Lady wrap you all in her warm, warm, mantle!
Oh, how wonderful! She is just beautiful! Congrats to you and your beautiful family!
Good news! All blessings to you and your whole excited family!
What a lovely baby, congratulations!!! Is it just me, or does it look a lot like her mama?
Praise God! What a beautiful baby! I’ve been praying for a quick and (relatively) easy delivery for you every time that I’ve thought of you, which included yesterday. Now I’ll start praying for a smooth and peaceful transition, and for children who respond the first time you call their names…:)
Will you pray that MY children will respond the first time they’re called?? Heehee
woop woop! so happy for you, she’s lovely.
Good Job! Congratulations!
Congratulations! Prayers to you as you settle in at home.
I had a feeling this was happening yesterday….
I hope you are feeling well. Are those forceps marks on this lovely little soundly sleeping bambina? I hope things were not too difficult for you, but thank God you have made it through to the end and little Benedicta is here. Cute name but I keep thinking of that photo of Edith Stein at her profession and how beautiful she was..what a truly great intercessor she will be for this little one!
Sleep well, Simcha, you have earned it and then some.
Privileged to have been born on the feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Congratulations! What a beautiful and blessed family.
Adorable!!! Congratulations, new babies are so fun!
Beautiful, beautiful. Congratulations!
Many congratulations! Love the name (coming from the mother of a Benedict)!
Congratulations Simcha et al! Not that I’m religious or against birth-control or anything, but babies are good folk, y’know? And any baby being raised to know right from Kinkade is bound to turn out alright. Hope you find some sleep in the next ten years or so.
Beautiful baby; beautiful name; beautiful blessing! Congratulations to the whole family and double blessings on you Mom.
May Benedicta start sleeping right through the night soon!
What a wonderful birthday to have!!! Congrats to the Fisher family on their new baby!!! And Congrats to you Simcha, you don’t have to make dinner for the next few days (if you’re really lucky, the next few weeks!) That’s my favorite part about having another baby!!! J/K (sorta)
CONGRATS! And hey, that’s MY birthday, too! Not that you know me from a hole in the head, but still.
I’m feeling smug: your Benedicta a December child, like me.
Seriously, many blessings on the birth of this beautiful child. I know her brilliant protectress, Benedicta, will ask Our Lord to bless your little one with wisdom and grace.
Congratulations, blessings, naps and heavenly peace to you and little Benedicta!
Congratulations More Simcha-ness in the world, hooray
Absolutely gorgeous name… and oh my gosh, we get a mini-Simcha! Can’t wait to see what this one’s blog is like
Beautiful Baby! Beautiful Name! Congratulations!
Congratulations! I needed a beautiful baby shoot today to brighten my dour mood! Thanks!
Congratulations on your beautful baby girl, with the beautiful name!!
