our girl



Olive
born November 5th, 2009
today 6 weeks old . 4lb 11oz

we are head over heels!
we left at 6am to drive 5hours south to Corning, Arkansas to pick our girl up. it sounds far, but a full day with my husband, no school (finished finals yesterday!), coffee, a beautiful sunrise, and the pure anticipation made it SO.MUCH.FUN!

while driving through st. louis there was a sign for olive blvd. i thought it was serendipitous...



this is our girl.

she was SO good in the car. we were bracing for a long ride home, but she just slept and cuddled the whole way! not even one accident (until we got home...)

her favorite spot to curl up is on my shoulders - must be nice and warm and feel safe, because she goes for it every chance she gets! we found it especially cute when she decided it was most comfortable to sleep upside down up there.

sweet baby girl!

OMG...can i tell you how much i adore this? you can tell how small she really is when she is with him!

such a good girl...all curled up in her bed for a nap!



she does not like to be out in the cold. she does her business and then wines and climbs your legs until you take her in.

how the heck are we going to live without her next week when we are in arizona??

told you...she slept the WHOLE way back.


she is so much fun to play with! her legs are still really uncoordinated so its funny to see her try to get crazy on the slippery laminate floors!



after she explored and ate she was tired so we wrapped her all up for a nap.

if this wasn't enough you can see more pictures of our first day here!

I was waiting all day to see pics of your baby girl. She is so adorable! Bring her to Oregon sometime to play.

what a FUN day! I didn't know you had to go so far to get her. I can't wait to see more of Olive! since she gets so cold you should knit her a sweater, a pooping sweater!

LOVE LOVE LOVE her! I am SO happy for you guys, she is going to make your life so full of love and happiness! Before you know it you guys will be saying, "What did we do before we had Olive?" I only wish I could meet her in person!
