Autumn Update

Just thought I'd give a quick update on my favorite kitty. We've had her now for 5 months and she's doing fantastic. She was pretty sick for the first 3 months that we had her. Our vet believed it was either asthma or a parasitic lung infection. We believe it was actually the latter and she had lungworms. After she received treatment for that, she's been doing great. She now has all of her kitten feistiness.

I now can't imagine life without her in our family. She follows me around everywhere and sleeps on my pillow. She has so much love to give.

Her favorite toys are the pom poms that you buy at craft stores. The only problem is that they always end up under the furniture and I have to fish them out for her.

No cat should be without their pom pom. . .and no family should be without their Autumn. :)

Friday, February 26, 2010 - Update

I apologize. . I haven't had many pictures to share lately. It's mainly because Olivia has wanted to be on the other side of the camera and take the pictures herself. Here is a picture that I tried to take as Olivia attempted to grab the camera from me.

And here is our house from Olivia's perspective. Eventually, we'll get the rest of the walls painted. :)

Be sure to check out Dizzy From Izzy to see all of the pictures that Olivia's cousin, Izzy, has taken. Some of Izzy's photographs are astounding for a 2 1/2 year old.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 - Update

Grandma Mary watched Olivia today and I was able to rest up. I appreciated it so much. I also heard that Mary was getting her haircut today with Kim (Ryan's sister) and Olivia's cousins. They all go to the same lady who cuts their hair every 6 weeks or so. Olivia has needed a haircut very badly, but I've been terrified to go back. The last two times have been disastrous. Remember THIS: Olivia's first haircut? Well, they agreed to take Olivia with them to get her haircut. I guess she did wonderfully! I don't know if it was because I wasn't there or if she saw the other kids getting their hair cut or if it helped that grandma stood up instead of sitting with her in the chair. Maybe Jatena is that good at cutting kids' hair or Olivia is outgrowing some of her fears. She was such a big girl and now she has a cute little bob. Thank you, Mary and Kim, for taking on one more child and making things so easy on me today. I don't know how to thank you!!!

Still Sick

We're still sick around here, but Olivia seems to be handling it better than me. There isn't much that slows her down. She has just decided to add a nap these last couple of days. Olivia is so frustrated with me because I have NO voice. To her that means. . .less books to be read, less songs to be sung, etc. And no matter how sweetly she asks, I can't get my voice back. Maybe it'll come back tomorrow and we'll both feel better.
