Never Give Up

Yesterday we were outside enjoying the beautiful weather. I've been trying to teach Olivia how to pump her legs and swing by herself. She's almost got it! She just needs to give it a little more umph and keep going. But, she gets frustrated and mad and says she can't do it. So, standing outside in the backyard I told her that she gives up too easily.

Olivia gives up too easily?

My mind drifted back to the NICU where I watched a 1 lb 1.5 oz little baby fight harder than anyone I'd ever seen. Her entire life tells the story of someone who doesn't give up. No matter what the odds, no matter how hard. . .she doesn't give up. She does things on her own timetable and in her own way. But, never does she give up. Keep doing what you're doing baby girl. You're amazing!
