meet evie.


 our baby girl
evie jane olsen
was born on 1.21.11
5 lbs. 15 oz.
18 inches long

we've only known her for 6 days and already i cannot imagine life without her. her name is pronounced eh-vee (not eve-ee) and we think it suits her perfectly. after all, she has been evie to me all along. so far her little spirit is happy and content and we feel like the luckiest parents on the planet. she is perfectly healthy and didn't require any special care at the hospital. we know that many of you joined us in offering prayers on her behalf and we can't thank you enough for all that you did. our prayers were answered in the most magnificent way and now we have a beautiful baby girl to show for all of the sacrifice and hard moments this pregnancy required. it took about 5 seconds for her spirit to erase all the pain and heaviness my heart had been harboring over the last few months and now i feel so completely whole again. she has made every second of loneliness and sadness so worth it. we are in love.
