May Moments

This little monkey has been keeping us on our toes!   Before I get too ahead of myself we have some exciting news! Olivia did so well with her 2 week trial of no oxygen that the doctor allowed for it to be removed completely! We are oxygen free!! She is still on medications and the “prescription” for oxygen hasn’t been removed (as a ‘just in case’), but hopefully when we go back in June all will be well and we can officially be done with oxygen, return all the equipment, (and get some space back in our tiny house!). Summer weather seems to be upon us here in NC so we aren’t going on as many walks as we had been. We have started to use our small baby pool and take advantage of my parent’s  neighborhood pool. Olivia absolutely loves the water! It’s difficult to take a picture of her in the pool so here’s one of bath time. Her face is practically the same whether in the bath or in the pool-pure joy!  Olivia has also started to eat solid foods but  because her need to have higher calories

5/2 April fools! It’s already May

Wow April really flew by. Before I knew it, it was April 30 at 10pm and Kevin was reminding me I need to put together my April updates for the blog.  Olivia has continued to develop quite a personality and has started to become more engaged in playing with her toys, interacting with people, and entertaining herself. She’s really testing her vocal limits (screeching, babbling, and growling…and everywhere between) and is constantly making funny faces.    Most exciting to me is that she has started to laugh. She thinks blowing raspberries is the absolute funniest thing on earth second to blowing bubbles with her oxygen tubes.  During Easter weekend, and because Olivia was downgraded to oxygen only while sleeping and eating, we were able to get out of the house for longer stretches of time and spend time with family. We celebrated Olivia’s cousin’s 1st birthday on Saturday… And Sunday spent time with her cousins on Kevin's side of the family.    Olivia even got to meet her great grandp
