Subtle Differences

So now that Erin and I have increased the universal Bice quotient by two, many are wondering what improvements have been made in Biceling 2.0. We feel that the simplest way to demonstrate the new features of the newest Biceling as compared to the original formula is to go with a simple side-by-side comparison.

v 1.0

v 2.0

And there you go. I think that the pictures pretty much speaks for the complete redesign of version 2.0.

The ODB arrives!

It has been a few days, and I've personally contacted most of you who read here regularly, but for all the others out there we are pleased to announce that Olivia Diana Bice was born at 6:40 PM on Tuesday the 10th of January. She was 6 lbs 4 oz and 20 and a half inches long. Other than that she looks alot like her big sister, but with dark brown hair and a slightly darker complexion. Erin is doing fine and Olivia is showing us how loud she can cry at 3 AM. Pictures will be coming soon as well as Madelyn's reactions someone stealing some of her thunder.
