Olivia Ruth

I can't believe she is here


or how quickly she came, once she was ready

I walked into the hospital at 10:00 am, not really convinced I was even as far in labor as my midwife said

An hour and a half later, 11:35 am I was holding my little (pudgy) baby girl


All whopping 9lbs 1oz of her.

Less than 36 hours later we were home

Really it was amazing

And now I have this amazing little girl



Our newest addition

That has always belonged right here



And I couldn't imagine life without.

A sweet little princess

Adored and protected by her brothers



Already daddy's little girl.


Now we adapt to life as a family of 5

And figure out how to make it all work

(like 3 carseats in the back seat!!)

  11. She's precious! Love her name! Olivia is the name of one of E's best friends and Ruth is the name of one of mine. Makes it easy to remember.

    She looks like she is smiling a bit in the photo on the scales. She's proud of herself. (And, WOW! E was 9 lbs 2 oz at 4 months old.)
