Olivia is here!
Our precious Olivia Caroline has been born!!
She was born on October 15, 2009 at 1:55 p.m.
weighing 8 lbs. and 20 inches long
She is so precious with her black hair and dark blue eyes. Her little chubby cheeks are so lovable!
I'm thankful to say that the international birthing experience went smoothly. We got Olivia's birth certificate today and we will go to meet with the embassy tomorrow to request her passport and social security card. As far as the hospital stay, the doctors and nurses took very good care of me and Olivia. I was very pleased. One interesting tidbit...Eric and I kept smelling fish in the hospital and we didn't know where it was coming from. I discovered the fish smell was coming from all the babies when I saw the nurse slather Olivia down with fish oil! Evidently fish oil has some great vitamins in it that are good for the skin but very smelly:).
Thank you all for your prayers for our family!
