Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - Update

Olivia's first time cooking.
Help, the eggs are burning!

For awhile now, I've been watching for Olivia's third tooth on the bottom that is trying to break through. Imagine my surprise today when I found that she had a top tooth! When did that happen? Her second top tooth is getting ready to break through as well. I'd better start updating her baby book.

Thank you for your support and prayers. I try not to ask anything for myself because there are so many people out there in need of far more than me. I have amazing friends and family and I'm blessed with a wonderful husband. He's always so supportive of me and does whatever he can to help. He helps cook, clean, take care of the animals and works all day to support his family so that I can stay home. I'm so thankful for that beccause I don't know how I would be able to work right now. Of course, we're still trying to adjust to having only one income, but I'm sure we'll manage. Olivia and Ryan enjoy "Saturday mornings with dad" and I get to sleep in. I've noticed that Olivia watches a lot of "boy" cartoons like Ninja Turtles and her favorite, Spongebob SquarePants. I'm sure the day will come when I'll wake up and Ryan will have her playing video games. She'll be well-rounded, I'm sure. Thank you all for everything!

I'm here for you whenever you need me. If you just need to have some company while you lie on the couch in your pajamas, I can be there. If you need help with household chores, as much as I enjoy cleaning, I'll be there. If you need someone to watch Olivia while you sleep or go to doctors' appointments, I'll be there.

I don't think you realize just how amazing you are to get out of bed every day. For a doctor to tell you that, it is pretty telling about the kind of strength it takes.

Don't ever feel guilty about asking for something for yourself. You have been through so much more than anyone should ever have to. And sure, you can always find stories of people who've been through more, but this is your life and your experiences.

I really hope you start to feel exponentially better prior to six months. And, I look forward to the day when you feel like doing more (you know, since I'm such a social butterfly and all). Good luck in your Energize Jodi journey. I will be there with you whenever you need me.
