I think we have a pacifier girl. Olivia never had a pacifier or sucked her thumb as she didn't like things in her mouth. Abigail is all about her pacifier (the gumdrop ones) and can even (sorta) hold it in herself. And the pacifier doesn't seem to interfere with breastfeeding which I kind of worried about. Olivia still, however, sucks on the side of her hand right before she falls asleep. It's very sweet. I always know when she's almost asleep. Honestly, I hope she never stops because its so sweet and calming to me. It's a sound of pure restful contentment. Love my girls!

My daughter, the artist

As you know, one of Olivia’s least favorite things to do has been to draw.  Getting her to pick up a crayon is like torture.  She has, however, always liked to draw on her magna doodle.  Tonight she completely surprised me by drawing masterpiece after masterpiece!  She has come so far in just a few months.  Sadly, I can’t save them because they get erased, but I was sure to take pictures of each one.

Olivia had her preschool Christmas program today. For a girl who loves to sing, I'm surprised she didn't do more of it on stage. LOL! And she has the same nervous habit as me. . .picking her lip. It was adorable, though. We did get it on video, although I doubt I post it. When I first got pregnant and found out I was due around Christmas, I worried about missing her program. LOL! But, we all made it. Even Abigail! Great job, Olivia! Our Christmas break has officially begun!

Blessed

After losing my sweet son, Logan, I feel so blessed to have Olivia and Abigail.  After watching Olivia fight for her life, I feel so blessed to have Olivia and Abigail.  After knowing so many people who struggle to have a child of their own, I feel so blessed to have Olivia and Abigail. After hearing the devastating news of what happened in Connecticut, I feel so blessed to have Olivia and Abigail.  Every parent, every day should hug their child and tell them how much they are loved.  They are such blessings in our lives.  As a mom of these two precious girls, I can’t even express the depths of my love for them.  I’m so grateful to be their mom.
