Uncharted Territory

I can’t tell you the sense of accomplishment I will feel when I wake up tomorrow and I’m 23 weeks, 2 days pregnant.  And, to 99.9999% of the pregnancy population that is no accomplishment at all.  But, it marks the most pregnant I have ever been.  To go to sleep tonight with baby sister tucked safely inside of me instead of fighting for her life in the NICU. . .words just can’t describe.  I literally have no idea what to expect after this point in time.  I still have such a long road ahead, but to be 23 week, 2 days pregnant and not even on bedrest. . .I just feel so grateful and so blessed.  Thank you for traveling down this road alongside me. 

Olivia had a great birthday today!  She is so excited to be five years old.

One of her favorite gifts was her new keyboard.  She will literally play it for hours on end.  And today she played part of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by ear!! That girl is going to be a musical genius!  Seriously. . .mark my words!

One of MY favorite gifts was her stuffed animal cage.  She has built up quite the collection of stuffed animals.  I had a huge box of them in storage because we literally had no room for them.  So, this morning she rediscovered all of these stuffed animals that she didn’t remember.  To her it was like they were brand new!  She now has a few new friends and I don’t have stuffed animals all over my house.  Can’t beat that!
