Kim and Tony Bruce are wonderful friends of ours and the very proud parents of Olivia Brigham Marie Bruce - the cutest little girl we've ever known - and our God-daughter. 

 

Tony and Kim at Reese and Raquel's wedding in May of  2000.

"Pumpkin" was on the way and we were all convinced Kim was having a boy!

Kim, Raquel and I acting rather silly at a Mexican restaurant.   Kim was able to "pretend" smoke for the picture and have a non-alcoholic drink.   The restaurant wouldn't let us keep the hats.

 

The happy new family.   Olivia Brigham Marie Bruce was born on October 24, 2000.

Kim went into the hospital while Paris and I were in Virginia getting married - but Olivia waited until we returned to be born. :)


Olivia's first official photo.

 

Holding Olivia for the first time.

 

Olivia and her parents at around one month

The Bruce family joined us for Christmas 2001 - Olivia was around 2 months.

Paris with the "little one" as he calls her.

Olivia hanging out on the couch enjoying being the center of attention.

Olivia's Dedication at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Chapel in February, 2001 - with Chaplain Alexander and the Bell from the USS Reuben James.   

Olivia's name was inscribed on the ship's bell, which is Navy tradition.

The Bruces - Olivia is wearing a beautiful gown that Kim made herself!

Kim with Olivia in her too cute baby sunglasses while on a visit back to the mainland to see family.

Olivia gets a bath from Grandma Bruce.

I tend to refer to the visits they made to the mainland as the times "they took the baby girl away".

Like father, like daughter...
