Tess Alivia Has Arrived

Tess Alivia O'Daniel was born on Friday November 19, 2010 at 9:56AM and weighed in at 7lbs. 7oz. and measured 19 1/2" long. She was in a hurry to arrive considering we got to the hospital at 7:15AM and didn't start the induction until around 8:30AM. Both mother and child did extremely well through the birthing processes. Tucker came to visit later in the afternoon and seemed to be okay at first, but his jealousy is pretty apparent. It may take a few weeks for him to adjust. He has given his little sister a few kisses, but he has also pushed her away several times.

Cousin Max enjoyed holding and kissing his little cousin Tess.

The boys got out of the house to do a little tree climbing while taking a break from staring at and admiring little Tess.

Tess gets pretty exhausted from all that eating, pooping, and sleeping.

Trick or Treat

Tucker had lots of fun this Halloween as a giraffe and actually liked wearing his costume. He got to wear it to a trick or treating event at the park, a birthday party on Saturday and out trick or treating Sunday night. He went to five whole houses this year and really got the hang of it. On Monday, he tried putting on his costume again and headed toward the front door, and then he got upset when I wouldn't let him go to the neighbors to get any more candy!
