nineteen days

today is olivers due date. the twenty-seventh of march is the day i had in my mind for the arrival of my little one. honestly, i didn't even think baby would come until the first week of april. but baby ollie decided he would throw himself a surprise birthday party on march the eighth.

in a couple of days, i went from being very pregnant and expecting to be very pregnant for at least 3 more weeks, to instantly falling in love with the tiny boy the nurses placed on my chest.

cuddles; a couple days ago.

although the timing of his arrival was very unexpected, he came at the right time. i look at him now, watching him grow each day, and i'm so thankful that we've already had nineteen days with our boy, and that we get to keep him forever. as soon as brian & i laid eyes on him, there wasn't a doubt in our minds that he belonged to us. we love you, baby ollie.

for auntie erin, so she can see how gosh darn cute he looks in the sleeper she bought him.

can you believe he's ours? the thought makes me smile everyday!
here's hoping he continues to pleasantly surprise us for the rest of forever.



time is fluid. it moves so quickly; there is hardly a definition between night & day. little oliver changes every day. we took him to the doctor today and he has hit six pounds! go ollie! he is a rockstar at breastfeeding and we are so darn in love with this little man. we sit around and stare at him all the time. there is laundry in the living room and dishes in the sink, but can you blame me? look how cute he is. its ridiculous.

sleepy smiles.

cutest yawn in the world.

keep up the good growing, baby boy! you are cute & sweet & the best baby in the world.

our little boy has arrived!
oliver douglas was born on march 8 at 5:14 pm.
he weighed in at 5 lbs 7 oz and is 20 inches long.
he's our itty bitty ollie.


and we are so in love with him.


welcome, precious boy.
