Welcome, Olivia!

I am an uncle again!

Me holding my new niece, Olivia, on May 16, 2024.

My niece, Olivia Jean Reser, was born on May 15. She is the first child of my brother and sister-in-law. All three are doing very well.

Carrie and Glen admire Olivia shortly after her birth.

Of course I am not the only one earning another notch in my familial relationship belt. Sidney is an aunt again while Sloan and Beau have a new cousin.

Olivia was born on May 15, 2024.

I had the thrill of picking up the kids from school on Thursday and surprising them with the news that we were going to the hospital to visit Baby Olivia. Sloan had the chance to hold her and Beau glowingly described his cousin as “dorable.”

Sloan and Beau meet Olivia for the first time.

Sidney met Olivia for the first time on Sunday after we returned from a weekend retreat. It was a special moment for my wife who had been so excited throughout Carrie’s pregnancy and had enthusiastically helped prepare for Olivia’s arrival.

Sidney was so excited to hold Olivia for the first time.

We are now in the midst of those first several days of Olivia’s life. For new parents like Glen and Carrie, there is nothing more exciting than spending this time with your baby. So much learning, growing, and loving. I may be living vicariously through them 😉.

Sloan is one proud cousin.

Please pray for Olivia during this initial stage of her life. May it be characterized by good health and joy. I am a proud uncle and couldn’t be happier for my brother and sister-in-law. Don’t Blink.
