hello, little olivia. nice to meet you. xo, your aunties

last weekend me, tiffany, jenny and colby flew to dallas to see carlye and meet olivia. when i touched down in dallas i was really sad to find an empty carseat in the car. little livi was at home napping while us girls headed to lunch. i couldn’t wait to meet her – none of us could. your dearest friends having children is something indescribable. it’s surreal, but so special. the love each of us “aunties” feel for these new babes is so strong. 
we spent our first nights and days in dallas smooching on livi, giving big (furry) brother dozer the attention he’s craving, eating rounds of fried chicken sliders at Max’s Wine Dive, and afterwards crashing in an adult slumber-party style sleeping arrangement. it was our own version of “chicken soup for the soul” — the fried variety. 

the little babe loves her bath time.

something said often that night with both food & drink: “we’ll have another round”

the weekend was all about love.
