It has all been a blur...

It has been a wonderful, precious, tiring month. I feel like we go from moments of pure bliss to complete survival mode. We have all adjusted to having Olivia in our family. After a rough first couple of days even Gabriella has gotten used to the idea that she is no longer the baby. Livvy has been a very sleepy baby and probably our easiest newborn. I am very grateful for that. We all love to cuddle with her and look forward to seeing her first smiles. It was scary to have aunt Christy leave after the first week, but luckily Grandma came soon to help us. I keep hoping someone else will come...anyone??? Can't wait to see what the next month has in store for us!Olivia Grace 1 month old and ready to party!

Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby-- I think not:)

It is really hard for Bree to hold still--ever, but the baby does have a calming effect on her--at least for a few seconds:)
If Joshua had his way he would sleep with the baby in his bed all night. He was disappointed when he found out he was getting another sister instead of a brother, but he has been so sweet to Olivia. She is so lucky to have a protective big brother who adores her.
