Welcome, Olivia.



We started with labor yesterday morning...19 hours later we are blessed with a beautiful baby girl. Mom did a fantastic job, and is doing great. Dad is happier than ever, and I never could have imagined what this could be like, and what it means to have your own child. Thank you for everyone that has been there for us, we love you all.
OK, I got the serious stuff out of the way. Now we can do a little jig for the HALLOWEEN BABY. I have big plans for extravagant and over the top Halloween Decorations, costumes, and celebrations for the next 18 years, and now can be fully justified other than my nerdiness.

Wow, just made it into the witching hour. Well done!

I really thought you were going to go with Mercury Volatile, but Olivia is a nice name too.

Congrats on your little Great Pumpkin!

I'm glad one of the first things she saw was and Iowa Hawkeye. Nice job on the shirt.

Of course she knew to come mid week, so as not disrupt a home game, and now she will probably be at her home to watch the game on the big screen. Now that's a smart baby!

Sharon is ooing and aaahing.

Glad mom and baby are doing well.

Love to the whole family,
Jamie and Sharon

Just here with her and Mom resting. She is an absolute peach, or as Cory put it, a very cute little Great Pumpkin. As was snoopy.

Jamie- She was punctual, and just in time for the Northwestern game.

Nick and Stephanie said...

Congrats you guys! She is a doll! We are so excited for both of you. Nicole, you need to pass some of those labor vibes my way so baby Proud will come and join the rest of us. Then the two of them can meet! Miss you guys!

That kid looks awesome! I thought maybe she would have fangs or something...maybe like red eyes. Maybe that stuff shows up next Halloween. Way to go Nicole...big props. It's good to see such outstanding people becoming parents. Enjoy!
