Baby Ollie is Here!

Oliver Bradley arrived on Monday, March 21st at 7:17 a.m.  He was 6 lbs. 1 oz and is 18 1/2 inches long.

I was going to post from the hospital, but frankly, I was enjoying that wonderful, peaceful time too much!  There is nothing like a comfortable bed, kind nurses waiting on you hand and foot, Percocet and hours and hours to snuggle with the cutest little boy I've ever known! OH, he is so precious and has our hearts already!

Here are some of the first photos of him and of our new family of SIX!

Baby "Ollie"

He has all of his fingers and toes...I just love his toes! :)

Some of the most unflattering pictures of me...but I was willing to sacrifice my pride for a family photo :)

Laurel has been waiting for this moment for so long!  She was practicing holding baby Ollie for weeks before he came.  She was in heaven!

Maise loved holding him too.  It was so fun this time considering they were only 13 months old when Norah came to us...this was the first time they "got it".

Norah wasn't sure what she thought  but warmed up to Ollie after a little while.  Grandma Stevenson came a couple of times to the hospital to hold Ollie and help corral the girls :)

 Two of our favorite nurses: Risa and Bautta.  They cared for the twins in the NICU three years ago so it was a really fun reunion!

Today was the first day back home and packing is almost done.  Hard to believe we will be on the road to our new adventure in a week!  I'm still feeling like I just had a c-section but my Mom won't let me do too much and Jeff has been great as usual.  I am in good hands! We are in the midst of "crazy" but it feels OK so far. :)  I'll do my best to keep this updated ...until then, wish us luck!


  1. Oh Hannah. Congrats!! I'm so happy to hear the good news! And he's such a doll. Totally makes me want another :). I hope the next few months go well. And seriously, sweet nurses and percocet and I'm a very happy camper. :)
