THE CALL!!!!

AHHHH! Julie CALLED US! I know I am still freaking out!

Ok the details. I can't post her name or picture because she is not legally ours yet. Baby "S" is 10 months old and was born on May 23, 2008. She is 17 lbs. and 28 inches. She barely has any hair and looks a little chunky but I know she is petite. She is beyond beautiful. We are so excited!!!

We plan to name her Olivia "S" Aarseth. If you live nearby and would like to join us to celebrate, we are meeting tonight at 6:30 at Carmines Pizzeria next to Corner Bakery on Coit and Campbell.


I will post more after we meet with the International Pediatrician tomorrow (this is just a step that is part of the process, she is perfectly healthy:)

Congratulations! Olivia is about 2 and a half weeks older than Elise. Who knew they would be close in age and size? But Olivia has the edge on Elise by 3 pounds and 2 inches. :)
