Our Daughter's Birth

Our sweet Olivia Grace Bills was born on April 8th at 7:27am weighing 7 lbs :) She came the day after my birthday, and is the best belated birthday present that I could receive!

I started having contractions on my birthday, which got my hopes up that I might deliver her that day (my plan all along;). I really wanted her to come on my birthday because I share a birthday with my dad and my great grandpa! If she came then, that would be four generations and it would be so fun to all celebrate together. We made it to the hospital a little before midnight, but she was born the day after early in the morning. So close! 

I was 39 and a half weeks pregnant when I delivered (my due date was April 11th). Right after I delivered her, they put her on my chest and it was the sweetest thing. I couldn't believe that I was finally seeing her for the first time, it felt so surreal.

Words can't express how much gratitude and happiness and love I felt for her in that moment. I loved when she grabbed and held onto my finger!

I got to cuddle her all day long :)

The next day, we took our first picture as a family of 3!

She is my little best friend already.

We can't believe just how little she is! Her little feet and toes are so tiny and precious.

I love being her mom. Welcome to the world Olivia!



  1. I was waiting for this post! She is a cute baby and I can't wait to see you in June. :)
