Olivia Rose

I've been away for a few weeks tending our grandson and helping his mom as a new baby joined their family.

I'd like you to meet our new granddaughter, Olivia Rose.  She arrived on January 10 at 10:52 p.m., weighing a healthy 9 pounds 2 ounces.  She is sweet and round and fully cuddle-able.  As her aunt said, Olivia has "a proper double chin," though it's not so evident in this photo.  She also has a strong set of lungs which she actively uses to let us know there's a problem.

The facts that her little mouth forms a nearly perfect "O" when she's unhappy, that she weighed 9+ pounds, and that her name starts with an "O" led to her first nickname:  The Big O.  That one won't stick but this one, Ohsie Rosie, courtesy of her aunt, just might.

We had lots of fun with Olivia's big brother, Malachi, who turned 19 months while we were there.  He's a jolly little fellow who awakes with a smile.  He enjoys life with gusto.  We don't get to see him but about once a month so we were pleased that he didn't mind being left with us while his parents went to the hospital.

More than ever before I can appreciate why young people have babies.  Just two weeks and I'm very, very tired -- but very pleased to have been able to spend time with Olivia, Mali, and their parents.
