Introducing…

He’s here! Our new addition, Olivier arrived on Thursday, May 24th. At 6 lbs, he’s small but mighty. He is a laid back little guy who pretty well spent his first week eating and sleeping, which was to be expected.
Olivier arrived a day before his due date, and I was sure he would be late! It was definitely a surprise when I was sitting in a cafe with hubby and Belle and started to feel contractions. They were small so I figured it would be a few days before full on labor started since that’s what happened with Belle. Well, I was in for a surprise! After the cafe, we headed over to the airport to meet my mom because my sister and niece were arriving. The contractions were coming closer and closer together, but I was in complete denial, mainly because I had a hot stone pedicure booked that afternoon and didn’t want to miss it. Once I realized the pedicure was not going to happen, we headed to the hospital. This was around 2pm. By 6pm, 6:17pm to be exact, Olivier was in my arms crying away. We stayed in the hospital for a couple of days under observation since he did arrive so quickly, but everything is looking good!

Now comes the adjusting part. I must say that the first couple of weeks have not been the easiest, but we’re figuring it out one day at a time. Thank goodness Duncan has been home to spend time with Belle so I can get some rest. Also, Belle has been a great big sister and little helper. She has had a few tantrums here and there, but she mainly just wants to hold his hand and stroke his little head. The adventure begins!
