Olivia Rose

6 lbs, 6 ozs
8:04 p.m.

She is asleep on Jeff's forearm right now, her too-big hat over her eyes. We are in a state of shock and bewilderment and exhaustion and joy.

Will post the details soon.

Thank you, all of you, for your support and kindness and encouragement. We are overwhelmed.

Obsessively stalking your blog pays off! The first glimpse of your beautiful daughter... she is as lovely as her parents.

Welcome, beautiful O!

Much love from the south.

What a beautiful little girl!

I rather expected you would call her WaterBug or JuicyFreshTomatoBug or LiveBug around these parts. Glad to know she her lovely given name instead. That's a gift to us, thanks.

Wow, if I didn't have my own little girl, I would say she's the prettiest baby I've ever seen, but since I do, I have to say she's definitely the SECOND prettiest baby I've ever seen. Gorgeous. Congratulations. I can't believe I've been reading your blog for about a year and a half now. And here you are, a mom!
