Today was Olivia's 1 month appointment...She is 10 lbs! What a chunk! I guess we're doing something right. She's at the 75th % for her weight, and 50th % for height and head. So, she's growing, and no longer a little "peanut" anymore. She is smiling a lot more these days, and also making more cooing noises to let us know she is a happy girl. Avery is still doing well. She decorated her own little tree at our house this year, and is very excited for the Christmas season. She especially likes to touch all of mommy's "breakable" decorations! All in all, we're doing well, and starting to either catch up on sleep, or get used to not having as much sleep. Olivia is only waking up once at night, so that makes it a little easier.

We're still alive and kicking here! Trying to catch up on sleep here and there, but we're still very tired! Last week we had to battle the gas that Olivia was having, which was lots of fun! Some gas drops and some new bottles, and we're good to go now! She seems to be gaining weight, as we can tell her cheeks seem to have filled out a little bit. Avery is still doing well. We have noticed her acting out a little bit, but who can blame her when she was her parent's world for 4 years, and now she has to share it. We are all still adjusting, but are a very happy little family! We are looking forward to visits this coming week from both our families for Thanksgiving! God has blessed us this year in countless ways....

Things are going well around our home. PG and I are a little worn out, but I guess that is to be expected. Avery still loves having a sister, and is showing NO signs of jealousy at all, which is wonderful! Olivia is a crazy hungry girl, and I can barely keep up with her. The last couple of nights have been rough, as she seems to just want to be awake all night. Today Uncle Josh and Aunt Kathryn are coming from MN to meet their new little niece, so that will be a distraction from the normal daily life around here!

WOW! Finally I have some time to sit and write! The last week has been great, and we are so in love with our little girl Olivia. Avery has enjoyed it just as much, so far with no jealousy. Olivia is such a good baby. I think I can count on one hand how many times I've heard her cry. She sleeps all the time, and has been adjusting to our family schedule great! She naps with Avery and I every afternoon, and only gets up to eat twice a night. So far, so good! She changes so much each day, and I don't think she looks the same as she did when she was born. Looking at Avery's pictures, their newborn noses are the same, but everything else we're not sure of yet. The general thought is that she looks like Daddy. We look forward to continue watching her grow!
