On a recent trip to Water Valley, I was reminded that my blog hasn't been updated in almost 6 months. I will try my hardest to update you readers, but it may take a while. For now, here are some pics of Olivia's birth day:) She was delivered at Woman's Hospital in Flowood, MS on June 2, 2011 at 2:47 pm. She weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 18.5 inchs long. My sweet Amanda got to be Olivia's nurse after she was born. I was so honored to have her there. Rob was a great coach for me too. He was warned by a friend previously about how involved he would be in the process, so I don't think he was too frightened by it:) We had so many wonderful family and friends that came to celebrate with us on that day. It was a great day! There were 13 babies born that day so the hospital was PACKED. I was one of the last to deliver so all the nice suites were taken, but I got an upgrade the next day. More later....enjoy!
My sweet church, Pear Orchard Presbyterian, gave me a baby shower recently. Rob and I love our church and are so blessed to be a part of such loving people. It was a really sweet day. Mom came down to go with me. After eating and opening presents, some of the ladies read bible verses or just words of encouragement to me. They had them printed up on cards and gave them to me. Rob and I will have to keep them by our bed and probably read them nightly as we embark on the world of parenting. After that the woman prayed for us. It was such a special day!
My sweet friends Tanya, Kellie, Cortney, Kelley, and Jennifer gave me a baby shower in Taylor several weeks ago. I had so much fun and it was great to catch up with the Valley girls. It was held at my friend Tanya's beautiful home. I had so much fun and am so thankful for these lifelong friends.
I have the most wonderful friends!! I was blessed last Saturday to have a baby shower at Mrs. Pam Milner's home. It was so much fun....such a happy ending to a really hard week. Thanks Mrs. Pam, Amanda, Mrs. Cornelia, Carol Anne, Valerie, Hood, Kristi, Lindsay, Mrs. Lisa, and Carlin. Y'all are the best!
blessed with such a wonderful family!
my sweet momma!
