Welcome to the World, Olivia Grace!
She zipped into the world after MAYBE 5 minutes of pushing at 10:28, Sunday August 23rd, weighing 3 lbs and 2 oz; 17 inches long and was born at 31 1/2 weeks old.
We have a lot to share about her birth story, both horrendous and miraculous. But for now, we want to thank everyone SO MUCH for all the support and prayers. We just took a deep breath today, coming up for air for the first time in 5 days. I didn't even know it was going to be Friday until last night when Rafe told me.
Olivia looks 100% better then she did when the life flight crew wheeled her away Sunday night. She was flat, yellow, and bruised and completely limp. We have a picture the crew gave us right before they took off and it is shocking in it's intensity. If we have time tomorrow or the next day, we will begin to update with more details.
