Friday, July 11, 2008 - Update

Aren't I cute in my sailor outfit? I borrowed it from Izzy.I wore it today because it's my Grandpa Sailing's birthday.
Look at me trying to sit up like a big girl!

Olivia has just been super cute this week. I haven't been able to put the camera down. We actually took a trip to the mall today (and I didn't even buy anything.) I wanted to get out of the house, but it's been either too hot, too muggy, too windy or too rainy. Sometimes I never know how she's going to do. She knows how to scream really loud and I never know when she's going to practice it.

I also went in hopes that the exercise would help wake me up a bit. My fatigue just keeps getting worse and worse. I even went to the doctor about it yesterday. There's tired and then there's beyond tired which is what I've been feeling. Even when I get 8 hours of sleep, I still don't feel rested when I get up. He did some blood work to make sure there is no underlying problem. I'm sure it will come back fine. . .it always does. . .just like all my prenatal tests came back spectacular. I've actually been researching delayed sleep phase syndrome and boy, does it describe me perfectly. Like I've always known, my body doesn't follow any sort of normal cycle, schedule or rhythm at all. I'm tired all day and then when the sun goes down, I wake up. I'm hoping to get a handle on it soon as I just want to feel energized. . .even if it's just once a week. I tell ya, I'm getting closer to becoming a coffee drinker.

I found out yesterday that my grandpa is in the hospital. They are not quite sure what's wrong with him and if his symptoms are due to his Alzheimer's medication. My grandpa is one of the greatest men I've ever met. Please say a prayer for him and that he gets to go home soon.
**Evening Update**
My grandpa is now home and doing better.

You're right - these are adorable pictures of Miss Olivia. I'm glad you were able to get out of the house. I hope you girls had a good afternoon. Maybe we can get together sometime soon.
Prayers will be said for Grandpa Pink tonight.
Love you all!

You mean you went to the mall and didn't buy ANYTHING?!

Oh, that's right, you have to wait until the 15th! Maybe you can go back in a few days:)

I just love that little outfit. She is just the cutest little sailor!!
