Introducing....


(in pictures)

Oliver Creed

born February 11, 2011

at 1:57 p.m.

Weighing in at 7 lbs 14oz and measuring 21 1/2 inches long.

Cate came in town yesterday and we had such a fun time posing my little baby doll for his first photoshoot while the rest of the kids were napping.  Thank you, Cate, for all of your help! I will forever cherish these!!

I'm working on writing Oliver's birth story...in the mean time,  I may actually finish a few posts that I had begun before he was born...I had about 8 unpublished, overdue posts. Many of you have asked, and yes, we did do a "Bradley Method" un-medicated birth.  I highly recommend it.  (More on that to come in his birthstory.)  Until then...maybe these will hold you over.















(This is how I often find my two boys...Asher just can't get enough.  I don't blame him...but Asher is constantly reminded to "give Oliver some space".)



And now...for my favorites...I had to peel the 25 cents garage sale sticker off of this baby...(the blue one...not the 3 1/2 week old) before we could use it. When I bought it months ago, I never envisioned using it for this...





I never expected to get so many good ones of all three of them...I may not try again until 2012.






I can't decide which of the next ones are my favorite...what do you think?
