I haven’t blogged well because….
Olivia Rose Culver is FINALLY here!
She made her grand entrance into the world yesterday, October 20th at 4:38 am, weighing in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces, 21.5 inches, after a 38 hour labor. We couldn’t be anymore in love with her. Yesterday so many of our family and friends came by to meet the little one. We are so thrilled.
I can’t wait to share my birth story with you. It was a long ride and the hardest thing I’ve ever, ever done, but it was so worth it. I could NEVER have done it without the support of my husband and my sister. The three of us worked as a team and worked so hard to bring Olivia into the world. I know not everyone would have their sister into the birth room with them, but I could not have done it without her love and support. She knew exactly what to say to me, what I needed and when I needed. Danny did as well, but there was a special thing about having 2 people to rely on.
I don’t think you could ever understand what moms mean when they say labor and birth are hard, but so worth it until you go through it. I’ve never been so proud of my husband and I, this is by far our best achievement to date.
