Monday, July 14, 2008 - Update

Silly girl!

Do you ever have those really good trips to the mailbox? I received so many long-awaited items in the mail today. Of course, there were bills in there as well, but we won't think about those. We got Olivia's Baby Signing Time DVDs (one for now and one for her birthday.) We got our new insurance cards that we've been waiting on. We got Ryan's first paycheck that will come in handy after a month of not getting paid. I got my Redbook magazine. . .it was like Christmas!

I have to say that I have enjoyed watching Olivia develop a sense of humor. Sometimes she just cracks me up. Today I was singing to her a song that I often sing. .

The ants go marching one by one. . .hoorah. . .hoorah. .

The ants go marching two by two. . hoorah. . .hoorah. .

Instead of singing hoorah. . hoorah, I would substitute it with words like ooga booga, pickle-weasel, boingy boom, etc. and she just laughed and laughed. What a silly girl, indeed.

This is a really cute picture. Olivia is finding her sense of humor. We all know she's had a personality since she was born. :)

It was like Christmas in your mailbox you say?! Mine was much more depressing - too many bills and not enough fun. I may have to go to your mailbox for a change of pace! haha

Hmm...your mailbox sounds like more fun than mine too. I'm with Stacie.

Oh and just in case you get bored during one of your sleepless nights (that totally sucks by the way), I tagged you on my blog!

I just happened upon your blog and can't wait to go back and read it! Your daughter is truly a miracle!

We lost our twin boys in March, born at 23 weeks. They lived for 2 and 3 days but they couldn't fight anymore.

Our first daughter was born at 29 weeks and she is so perfect today! Being a preemie mom is hard but oh so, rewarding!
