olivia grace

yet again, we apologize for the long absence. this time, however, we have much more to share than ever before.  well, maybe not in quantity, but in content.

our little bundle arrived last saturday, on june 23rd.  it was the most beautiful day of our lives thus far… and we can’t believe we now have a little six day-old girl.  we are overwhelmed by God’s grace.

plenty of details and updates to come, but for now, we wanted to share some of our experience from that day with all of you.  big thanks to my ever-amazing husband, who put this beautiful video together, and to my sister kelley, who captured much of it on that day.

disclaimer: this video is not graphic, but you will witness the actual birth. viewer discretion is advised.

    Baldridge! I told you that it was going to be a girl when you went down to Baylor for UIL! Did you believe me? No! Was I right? Oh course! Ha! Next time I see you I’m re-stealing your tie due to your lack of faith in what I say! Hahaha!

    That girl’s going to grow up in a crazy house with you around! 😛
    …But I know that you’ll be a great father! Good luck, man! Try not to lose too much sleep!

  3. This was SO beautiful! I totally cried and I’m pretty sure I saw Jonathan wipe his eyes after watching it the second time. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a special time with us! I CANNOT WAIT to love on little Olivia!

    Congrats Baldy 😀 I can only imagine how you feel now that you have your little girl by your side. I’m sure she’ll grow up to be an amazing person with parents like you and your wife. I wish you and Courtney the best on your adventure as parents.

    p.s I noticed Olivia got lucky and looks more her mom, looks like God didn’t want to have another little ugly baldridge running around 😀
