Welcome home, Olivia!


Olivia Isabelle van der Meer in our arms at long last!
Arriving at 9:46am and weighing in at 7lbs 2oz.



Gorgeous brother, happy for us to be home and covered in marker from
making welcome signs for his sister. (Thanks friends!)



With great-aunt Tineke - the first of family to meet her.




Sweet friends and neighbors decorated our garden to welcome Olivia.


A new mother just needs fresh flowers by her bedside - again, thank you friends
for the thoughtful touches!

Third baby...

...third due date come and gone.  SO, back to the daily rhythm.  


Welcome home decorations are up & ready for sweet baby girl!
Nothing like a package of goodies from
one of my oldest friends to ease the rub of heading into
my 41st week of pregnancy!
A divine baby quilt commissioned by said friend
in a gorgeous "bubble" quilt pattern
Learning colors with the boy 

{Prepping for official Big Brother week}
