New Arrival

I changed the blog name to "The Wild Cards" now that baby #2 is finally here! Olivia Lula arrived on 3/7/13 at 11:01 a.m. weighing 8 lbs 3 oz and 20.5 inches long.

She is sweet, calm, and mellow. She sleeps very well for a newborn and rarely cries, except when she is hungry or getting her diaper changed. We are working on the breast feeding -- neither of us are great at it. She tends to fall asleep and then wake up hungry a little later. Or she won't latch on for a good while, which is a bit annoying, not to mention painful, for Mom.

Ben is sometimes the sweetest brother ever and sometimes a beast. The other day she was crying the car and he patted her car seat and told her "It's okay baby sister. I'll protect you." But then he'll sometimes purposely make noise while she is sleeping to wake her or something like that. We are all adjusting...

Here are some professional pics by Bella Baby, taken at the hospital.

Welcome to this crazy family Livvie Lu!


  1. Love the picture with her in the basket with big brother.

  2. She is so beautiful! Tucker was 8-3 as well, but 21 inches. Can't wait to meet Livvie Lu!

  3. She is so cute, I love those pics! The family one is so sweet. You all look so happy!
