The highlight of my weekend was - without a doubt - the arrival of my precious nephew, Oliver.
...check out that mohawk!
Oliver Brian was born in the wee hours of the morning on May 26th (24 hours after labor started - my poor sis-in-law!). He weighed between 7 & 8 pounds and measured 20 inches long. He's perfect. Oliver is my oldest brother's first son, my ninth nephew, & the fourth nephew with a birthday in May! (Thank goodness for birthday calendars, right?)
It was torture not being at the hospital with everyone, and I'm pretty sure I drove them crazy with my countless inquisitive texts. Any updates? What's happening? Will you send me a picture of the room? What does the doctor look like? What are you doing? How many inches is she dilated? I mean centimeters! (They're never going to let that last one go, by the way.) I knew the fam was starting to feel delirious when my mom sent me pictures of my sister & other brother pretending they were in labor in the next room :)
My mom called me shouting, "He's here! He's here! 8 pounds!" but my uncontrollable shooting-out-of-my-eyeballs tears didn't hit me until my brother texted me that first picture...
Everyone is safe & sound at home; I've heard his big sister is loving her new role :) Patrick & I get to meet the little peanut in less than two weeks! I can't want to kiss those puffy cheeks and breathe in that sweet baby smell. Oh Oliver, we're so glad you're here. xoxo, Aunt Ginny
until next time,
