  20. Congratulations! What a beautiful Baby!

  21. Oh, WOW. I knew you most likely had the baby by now and I’m really excited for you. Please forgive is for our delay in congratulations but our 24 yr old and our 34 yr old are now living with us again which puts a cramp in blogging. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Oh, the joys of parenthood. ๐Ÿ˜‰ All I can tell you is to get ready for the wildest ride of your life. BTW, if you ever receive a manual for Olive, please send it to me ASAP as we never received one for ANY of our children – it can never be too late. They also came with no warranty, express or implied, and perpetually drain our bank accounts, not to mention our energy and emotions. Think of it as the wildest roller coaster ride of your life taking you to the highest highs and most amazing drops conceivable. Labor is a piece of cake in comparison or so I’m told. ๐Ÿ™‚ You will also find it is your secret, innermost desire is for her to have children so she can experience the same ride as you and finally understand. ๐Ÿ˜€ Much congratulations!!!!! You both will be wonderful parents and we wish you, and Olive, all the best. She will change your life in ways you have never dreamed.

    • Wow, if what is to come pales in comparison to labour, I DEFINITELY want to find that return card, stat, haha. I’ll let you know if I find a source of manuals/money-trees/warranties…

      It’s funny you should say that about looking forward to your children having children. My mum has been quite open about her desire for this arrangement for a few years now (she even heckled our wedding vows, haha) and is absolutely relishing it, even from afar. It seems to be a pretty special relationship and, even better, one in which you can spoil them rotten and give them back to the parents at the end of the day.

      We’re loving the roller coaster ride so far and cannot stop oogling her and congratulating ourselves for making such a fabulous little critter. Hope you and yours are all well and lovely to have you back! xxx

  22. Olive, dear Olive. Langdon is waiting in the prairies of Canada to give you a big chubby hug! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I love your maternity gown by the way. Yours, or the hospitals??? You guys look sooooooooooo in love!

  23. Haven’t been on your blog for a while. So happy to see that you have an additional family member. She is beautiful ๐Ÿ˜€ Congratulations!
