Better Late Than Never.....Right?

Dr. Kleinpeter, Olivia, and Daddy

Olivia is here!! She made her debut on Friday, October 15th at 11:08am. She weighed in at 7lbs., 1.8oz, and she was 20 inches long. When they first showed her to me, I immediately said, "She looks just like Daniel!" But, I will let you be the judge.
Being as this was a planned C-section, there is no interesting labor story to tell. Everything went very well, and we were so happy to come home! Daniel went to stay with Gigi and Poppy for a few days so we could have some time to adjust to having little Olivia around. And Grandma came to stay with us to help out since I had strict instructions to take it easy, not lift anything heavier than the baby, and rest as much as possible...not to mention I was still on pain meds. It was such a blessing to have her here helping with laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc. We are so thankful to have this sweet baby girl as a part of our family!
