My Official Baby Announcement by Emily Riedel

Hey everyone!

Baby Evelyn Isobel Trokey was born at home to Emily Trokey (Riedel) and Alex Trokey in Homer, Alaska on March 29th at 9:00 PM.

We usually call her “Evie” or “Evie Bell” or “Baby Bear.” She was 8 lb 8 oz when born and is objectively the most beautiful girl I’ve seen in my life.

The last few weeks have been scary, incredible, and really, not that hard.  I don’t know what everyone is going on about when they say newborns are tough! (calm down moms, I’m joking) 

I’m grateful that Alex and I have had some time to spend together with our daughter and learn how to take care of her before things get too crazy getting the Eroica in the water and hunting for gold.

Evie is as healthy of a baby girl as our OB-GYN has seen. She’s feeding well, sleeping well, and growing by the day. We’re so excited to bring her home to Nome!

  1. Congrats Emily and Alex!
    Watching season 16 when you announced you were 8 mos. pregnant, the first thing I thought of was “I hope she names her Goldie” (like Goldie Hawn). She is quite beautiful (Evie, that is!). You’re gonna have to keep an eye on that one! My best to you and your beautiful family!
