Monday, June 29, 2009 - Update

Olivia has learned so many new things lately. The other night, she learned how to remove her diaper and ran around the house squealing in the nude. When she wants a snack, she finds the bag, gives it to me and patiently waits for her snack. When she wants to read a book, she finds it, gives it to me, turns around, sits on my lap and smiles. Of course, lately it has been the same book over and over. . .The Rhyming Dust Bunnies. There is a part where the dust bunnies are sucked up in the vacuum and she thinks it is hilarious. She even tries to imitate the Thhhwptt sound. She is really good at imitations. Sometimes when she says woof woof, I'd swear we had a dog in the house. :) Oh, and she does a perfect elephant. . .better than me actually. She still opens and closes cabinets and doors. The other day we were playing "Mama Get You" and she ran into the bathroom and closed the door. Smart girl!! She amazes me every single day. There are still developmental milestones that she hasn't met, but there are so many amazing things that she does every day that I'm just not worried.

I love that she continues to amaze you and Ryan each and every day. For all the new parents of micro preemies who are told there is little hope for their child - they should look to you and Olivia. She has come so very far from the very grim outlook she was given at birth. What a precious miracle.

Sounds like she is having fun and doing an excellent job of catching up.

Sounds like she's doing great! It's so fun to watch and be a part of kids developing, and I think there's something extra special about that when you have a preemie. Now about that snack...I'm glad she waits patiently. Ryan just starts ripping open the package!

So good to hear you say "I'm just not worried." If only we could transfer that to every area of life, huh?

I love the just not gonna worry about it attitude, I look back now and wish I had taken that same look on things. I spent so much time stressing and worrying and that is time I'll never get back, worrying wasn't going to change a darn thing and I knew that but still let that "fear" control me on some days. I think it's great that she is doing so many wonderful things, be prepared to be amazed from here on out cause our kiddos are awesome!!!
