Nice to see you keeping the Trish and Frank we met in MD. Frank's groundedness is exactly what Trish needs as she occasionally just floats up over the clouds in her enthusiasm. Also like the humorous presentation of Frank's loyalty to his company, sticking to those cars even if it meant driving in lesser vehicles. Chrysler didn't offer a bigger car than the 300C back then, did it? I seriously dislike the C, liked 300M much better.

Very nice last two chapters. Contrary to popular jokes, the men don't always hit the floor during birth and the women aren't threatening to do great bodily harm. Swearing I have heard on many occassions. I'm trying to remember, but I think that a baby's lungs are developed enough by seven-seven and a half months to survive being born by eight months. (I'm living proof of the eight month thing; I blame Mom.) Thirty four weeks is a tad worrisome, but by 36 the baby will be fine. And I could be wrong about the month the baby's lungs were developed enough to survive beign born early; it could be around six months, but I'm too lazy to check my nursing books.
I liked how you blended all the important people to Harm and Catherine into the groups meeting the newly born Elizabeth. I was surprised that you included Mac in congradulating Harm, but the tone sounds about right. She might have been rememberign the pact they made about if they weren't in a relationship in five years from A.J.'s birth. It was also nice with how you wrote the SecNav pretty much ordering Harm to stay home and enjoy the newborn baby. Life will be interesting for Harm, Catherine, and Mattie now that little Elizabeth is now in the formal world. There will be now sleeping through the night for a long time.

Oh wow - we finally get to meet everyone in the family.
No description of Elizabeth. What are they doing to call her for short? Beth? Liz? Lizzy?
What colour eyes does Catherine have? If they are blue, then chances are Liz's eyes will also be blue - unless her real father had brown eyes, but since Catherine is not talking about him, we don't know.
Funny also how no one has asked Trish and Frank just how they got to DC so fast... His private jet probably.
Anyway, its good to see just how much Catherine and Harm are in love with each other - and are not afraid to show it - even if Mattie does have to keep making a big deal of it.
Now, are we going to know the results of that test and proof that Liz is in fact a full term baby? Does this mean the man that Catherine though was the father is NOT actually the father? Did Catherine have multiple sex partners?
You've already indicated that Harm is not the biological father - even though his name is going on the birth certificate. I hope their blood types match or Liz is going to be most upset when she finds out in High school.
That's usually when kids do blood typing experiments for biology class.
I'd also like to know when Catherine becomes pregnant by Harm for real and she can give him a son.
But first they need to get through this 6 weeks moratorium (ban) on sex...
That might be hard on Harm.

My suspicion for lack of reviews is that many people are on their holidays, summer vacation, etc. TR for example went from 12 reviews per chapter to 4!
It can't be anything else, still it's incredibly frustrating. :(

Thrilled to see this excellent chapter, just love your story and you are so descriptive in telling this story. Welcome baby Elizabeth and it was a fun read as Harm and Mattie helped in Catherine's delivery. Mattie will be a great big sister. Glad Catherine's mom, Bud, Harriet and little AJ were in the waiting room when daddy Harm introduced them to little Elizabeth. Looking forward to Harm's parents meeting everyone soon. Thank you so much for this great story.

Go Turks! :D
I'm guessing you're wrapping this up? Can't wait for your next offering! :D

Hey - welcome to the world Elizabeth Patricia Rabb!
Something tells me this baby is NOT a premmie.
My son was born at 9 months and was 9 days past the due date.
He was 7 pounds 13 oz and 21 inches long.
That's just 1 oz lighter than Liz and 1 inch longer.
I think she is a full term baby and someone got their due date wrong.

Great chapter. Nice to see Elizabeth born this chapter. I had a suspicion that Catherine was in labor from getting out of the pool and onward through the day. It's hard to be original when decribing a birth and you did a great job. Now Harm's relationships will be clear to those that work for him at the puzzle palace.

Just catching up, my father has been very sick so I was unable to check out my favorite story "GiaT!" Just love your story of Harm,Catherine and Mattie. I really enjoyed this wonderful chapter, especially the visit to the Roberts' family. Way to go Catherine, such a classy lady and I really feel she and Harriet will be good friends. Also enjoying the love that Catherine and Harm are showing eachother. Thank you for your email Trevor and I should be able to follow-up sooner now that my dad is on the mend. Looking forward to your next chapter.

Nicely done - good job with Mattie talking to little AJ and the bookcase scene. So
Harriet wants Mac and Harm to become friends again eh? Will only time will tell.
Like the dynamic with Harm/Catherine/Mattie. :)

Good chapter, though I'm experiencing my War and Peace Syndrome... I want to read more about the action (in this case, in the office, at JAG and at the fiverounded bunker) than about the goings-on at home, it guarantees a lot of action. ;-)

Very nice chapter and reunion with the Roberts clan. Liked how you have Harriet accepting Catherine's & Harm's relationship.

Another great long chapter. Must say Harriet's really grating on my nerves, glad managed to shut her up, before she caused an argument. Waiting on next installment.

Nice chapter; I liked how you handled Harm and Catherine coming to Bud and Harriet's home for lunch. I also liked how you had Bud carefully handling his wife to make sure she wasn't going to do something that they all would regret. The conversation between Harriet and Catherine was well written and diplomatic considering how Harriet was portraied in the show. I would say it was true to form. It was cute how Mattie took to A J. It will give Harm practice for when she really starts dating. Here comes the Sig.
