Baby Olive

August 27th 2012 New Orleans, Louisiana (5:00pm).

The Dark Roux family just got a little bigger.

While most of the city was evacuating or “hunkering down” { <- inside joke for those from New Orleans} for the impending doom that was Hurricane Isaac, Heather and I were nervous and anxious for a completely different reason. Baby Olive was making her big debut!

I know what you’re thinking, “Perfect timing!”. But Heather and I are a little use to the added stress of having a baby during a Hurricane. Our oldest daughter Vada was born the day before hurricane Gustav, and the entire experience was a nightmare, which I wont get into. This time however, instead of getting kicked out of the hospital, we were able to stay though out the entire storm. I really am the luckiest guy in the entire world right now.

Heather and I are beside ourselves with pride and happiness….

“Memories replay before him
All the tiny moments of his life
Laying round in bed on a Saturday morning
Two daughters and a wife
Two daughters and a beautiful wife”
