Little Olivia met her parents on September 10, 2015 at 11:01 pm weighing 8lbs 4oz. While Mommy and Daddy are surely patriots, mama was certainly not going to mess around with pushing her baby girl out before the clock struck midnight, after a long 24 hour induction. It was a joy to watch Mom and Dad partner up to bring her earthside. I loved how they joked with one another. Laughed out loud together and quietly determined they would get baby girl out and it would be with out a Cesarean, she just needed a *little* more time. I can’t recall a birth I attended where a first time mommy pushed a baby out so quickly! The best days are certainly Birthdays and Olivia’s is no exception!
I loved the salmon (or is it coral?) sports bra mama wore that complimented her skin tone perfectly. You can still look gorgeous at a hospital birth Mommies! Seriously, though… this moment when mom first lays eyes on her baby girl, there is no greater moment to see. This is one of my favorites because Mom is just awe struck and speechless with a tear running down her cheek. I hope she never forgets this moment.
