Thank you, Thank you!


Thank you all for your love & support with the arrival of Ollie.  I fully intend on some day replying to you all, but I've been busy!  Snuggling with a baby is a heck of a lot more fun than blogging so I'm behind.  I have many posts to write sometime in the future.

Ollie is perfect.  We are smitten.  She's so stinking pretty & couldn't be sweeter.  She cries like a kitten, and sleeps all the time...to say she's easy is an understatement...so far anyway.  The big kids are thrilled with her, and adjusting.  We are still battling bilirubin & getting feet pricked daily - boo!  Nursing isn't going great...I'm a slave to my pump...it makes me sad but anyway to get her to eat is what counts.  Jade went back to work today, I missed him.  Seven days straight together with this little girl and him was fantastic.  It was hard to wait until 5:30 to see him.  He's the best!  Ollie got her first official bath - it's funny babies can go so long without baths and still smell good.  Her hair is wild wild wild now.  It's hysterical in the best way possible.  Tomorrow she's getting photographed by a friend - get ready for some fabulous-ness in the near future!

  1. So fun to see your new little bundle! Just a quick not to say that there's ALWAYS hope in the nursing department- my little muffin didn't really nurse until she was about 3 1/2 months old. And I've heard of lots of kids who picked it up after OHS. You have my full, heart-felt sympathy as far as the pump goes, though; I finally packed mine away after a year. Such a sucky (pardon the pun) necessity.

    So glad she's home!

  2. Can't wait to see more pics, but your time with Ollie, Aubrey, Everett and Jade are most important. We will all be here to celebrate each milestone. In the meantime take care of you - you have just started the first leg of a marathon, there will be time for sprinting later! Ann {{All of you}}

  6. I'm so glad to hear things are going well. That photo is stunning. What a talented photographer. I hope that nursing goes better, I only nursed one of my 4 and it was wonderful.

  7. Ollie is just gorgeous!An absolute blessing and so,so beautiful.

    Zoey came in flooded with a whole lot more than her AV defect and spent the first 3 months in the NICU.I pumped from day one.She was g-tube fed 20 hours a day until her heart surgery at 6 months of age.I pumped the entire time.Nurses,family members,I am pretty sure everyone, thought I was crazy.But I knew my child and true to form,the day that she was released from the hospital after her surgery... she nursed.At 6 months of age.She began nursing.My point:Never under estimate the strength and determination of these children, packed into one amazing little package.Magic in that extra chromosome.Pure magic.

    Enjoy these snuggly,diaperless days.They are the best.
