Presenting…Isabelle Tara Andrew De Vivo

Belle was born on Saturday, April 17th, at 11:28 am.

She was 6 pounds 4 ounces

And 19 inches long

She came out with a fierce loud wail

And didn’t need any help from the doctors

After everything we went through in this pregnancy..

It turned out that she is absolutely healthy!

Her heart is perfect and her chromosomes are perfect

In just 4 days she has brought indescribable joy to this little family

She is absolutely perfect.

And very attached to her mommy!

She’s got a fiery temperament, just like her mother

But is sweet as candy, just like her brother

Her daddy can’t deny her – she looks so much like him!

And is a replica of Nathan when he was born

So far she’s been a super easy-going baby

Very alert and aware

Looooves her breast milk but hates having her diaper changed.

We are so thankful for this new gift from God

And if you were wondering what Nathan thinks about this whole thing…

He doesn’t know quite what to do with her

Fortunately he has good friends giving him good advice

And now for some action videos taken by grandma:







You can see more videos on Grandma’s Youtube Page



  1. She is stunning! I’m so honored you would name her after me 😉

    Congratulations, my heart is warmed by “meeting” her! I just adore that picture of Nathan holding her, but not sure what to think! Can’t wait to see how much love and joy she will bring to your entire family!!!

  2. Congrats and I have been waiting to find out the great news!!! I kept checking your blog and so glad everything is going great. Thanks for sharing!!!


  3. Congratulation. She is gorgeous.

  4. It was funny reading over your post, Vera hated diaper changes and loved the boob, she still does, we are having problems getting her to take a bottle. I’m so happy for you all. Ryland still doesn’t know what to think of his baby sister, it will be funny to see what Nathan does. Now take it easy.

  5. What a punkin….thanks for sharing. LOVE the pic of Nathan holding her w/ pouty lip. Congrats!


  6. Congrats Marcela! I am so blessed to be able to follow the journey of you and your family. I have learnt so much from you in the past 2 years! You are the first person I turn to with a new different therapy for Billee.
    Enjoy the joys of being a new mum and also enjoy this different journey of being mum to a ‘healthy’ baby. You are welcome to check in with me anytime for advice on this one!!
    Love to you all XXXXX

  18. Absolutely Beautiful!!! Congratulations to you and your family. I’m amazed at the first photo – you could get lost in it! She is a beauty!

    Oh, and the photo of Nathan and Belle….made me laugh out loud. Love it!!! That is a keeper.

  19. Que Dios bendiga a toda tu familia Marcela, Isabelle es una princesita preciosa, es muy linda, y lo maravilloso es que esta en perfecta salud, se parece mucho a su papá. Gracias por compartir este momento tan maravilloso con nosotros. Me encanta la foto de mi niñito con su hermana, es una carita de no saber que hacer, lo adoro. Amiga, los felicito por estos 2 grandes regalitos de Dios, les mando un gran abrazo y muchos besos, y ahora solo a disfrutar a tus hijotos maravillosos!!!!
    Belle es muy despierta, estoy muy contenta y feliz de haberla conocido, gracias amiga!!!

  20. So happy for you guys! She is so beautiful! I think she looks like Nathan in some pics and Owen in others! That pic of Nathan holding her is so adorable I can’t stand it!

  21. BIG CONGRATULATIONS! She is beatiful and really looks like Owen. But I am a little worried about the fierce personality you are talking about. It reminds me of a little naked baby girl crossing the street in my parents house and I barely caught up we her. I won’t mention the other stories just make sure you put all the baby safety stuff in your house and then some more.
    Love you and you can’t imagine how happy I am. Can’y wait to se3e you all. Love Tia Abuela
    (God it does sound old, but worth it) Martha

  22. Awesome amazingness!!

  23. You did it momma. So proud of you. Many people don’t realize the guts it takes to go for number two after having a child with special needs, and you did it beautifully, start to “finish” or should I say start?

    Love her already.

    Also. That face from Nathan (so sadly sweet). Get used to it, you’ll see it alot. But you will also see just as many big smiles.
