The Olivia Report


I guess it's high time I introduced you to the newest member of our family! Olivia Grace came to meet us  at 6:41 PM on June 27th at a big, strong 8.13 pounds and 20 inches long. She is one week old now and settling in beautifully. So far she is such an easy baby! Lots of sleeping, great at nursing and quite a snuggly little thing too.
Lucy is just madly in love. All my anxiety surrounding this transition was unwarranted. Lucy is sweet and gentle toward her baby sister and not a bit jealous. And it looks like Mark is doing just fine surrounded by girls and all their accoutrements as well. 


So I'm getting lots of rest and cuddle time and did I tell you yet how happy I am NOT to be pregnant anymore??? Little Olivia was all worth the uncomfortable pregnancy and less than fun labor & delivery, but I like her much more on the outside where I can kiss this sweet little face.

  9. Congratulations! She is so sweet.

    I swear pregnancy gets miserable at the end just so we will be willing to go through labor to get them out of there! Not that we really have a choice... :)

    Enjoy your new one.

  15. She is gorgeous! Congratulations.

    May I just say "thank you" for being so frank about not loving the pregnancy part of the process? Most of my friends loved the pregnancy part - I did NOT. Nice to know that there is another person out there who loves the baby, but maybe not the pregnancy part of the process. ;)

    Enjoy all of the time with your lovely girls!
