Today our world changed and hearts exploded as we welcomed our precious little girl into this world at 39 weeks and 5 days into pregnancy. Meet Olivia Blair Thibideau born November 22 2015 at 2:55am weighing a ‘whooping’ 6 pounds and 3 ounces. She is a whole bundle of incredible sweetness and we are overjoyed for her healthy arrival.
I will share her birth story in the coming weeks on the blog but for now I wanted to introduce to you the most important little human being in our lives. Her first name has been the name I have dreamed of naming my little girl since my high school days and I am so lucky Beau was on board. I did spend the last five years warming him up to the name incase a little girl was to enter our lives, so when we found out a little girl was on route her name had already been decided. Blair on the other hand, has a lot of heart and meaning behind it. It is the merge of my mom’s English name ‘Barb’ and Beau’s mom’s name ‘Claire.’ A tribute to the most important women in our lives.
To introduce her to the world I knew I wanted to use a personalized swaddle blanket and was fortunate enough to be contacted by Rachel from Audrey’s Bear; it was fate (I’d been following her instagram for quite some time). She custom designed Olivia’s blanket with exactly every last detail I had requested, used an indescribably soft material that I myself could snuggle up to all while being extremely prompt and thorough. She also generously added an adorable matching hat (which you will see soon). It is perfection. I highly recommend her shop and think this is the best gift to give an expecting mama. What a keepsake.
You’ll be seeing a lot of this itty bitty girl, wishfully you don’t mind! Until then, I’m off to snuggle!
