Olivia update

Well, our little screamer has miraculously made a turn-around this week and has been a pretty pleasant little baby! She still has a long way to go to be as cheerful as baby Ella, but that is a pretty hard standard to live up to. I am not sure what exactly caused the dramatic turn-around, but am ever so grateful she is not screaming at us for two hours every night - in fact tonight she fell asleep around 9:00. Which means I actually had some free time! (which I wasted on watching stupid Jon and Kate plus 8, but now am blogging!) I think her happier state is due to the fact that we have been giving her the baby gas drops, but I have also stopped drinking milk, she is getting a little older, or she was sprinkled with holy water last Sunday! Take your pick!

Our beautiful little angel

She likes to talk to her teddy bear mobile.

She also likes the Bumbo seat we are borrowing from Auntie Kim. She had been bent over sucking on the middle part, so this is Ella pointing to her tongue telling me what Olivia was doing.

Olivia finally had her two month check up last Thursday. She weighed in at 11 lbs. 6 oz and was 22 1/2 inches. That put her in the 42% and 51% respectively I believe. To compare her to her siblings: Aidan - 13 lbs 8 oz., 23 1/2 inches and Ella - 12 lbs. 9 oz., 23 1/4 inches. So she is our little peanut for sure!
