Woo Pig!

What a great week! Olivia had several wonderful days in a row with no or very few seizures and lots of smiles. Brian had a VERY hectic week, but since I am feeling much better I could keep myself entertained for the better part of the week.

On Monday Livi had therapy at the hospital and she did great! She loves to roll around, but since she already can do that, she was made to stand and try crawling upstairs. Even when I was the prize at the top of the four stairs, there were tears, snot, and slobber coming from all over that girls face, but she did great! I think since her progress is so much faster now, we will be moving therapy at the hospital to once a week. Next week she will also be getting a feeding evaluation in addition to physical therapy to see if we can start feeding her some yet.

On one of Brian's late working nights Livi and I read lots of book to calm down before bedtime. I knew it was a bad idea, but we read this book anyway...

I think my first encounter with this book must have been through that scholastic book club in elementary school. I remember it being kind of sad then. WAY, WAY, WAY sadder when you're a mom and you have some experience under your belt. This time I was the one with tears, and snot, and slobber. Olivia just kept looking at me like, "is that what the book says to do?"

At the risk of making most of you despise me, I become someone else on Saturdays in the fall--college football crazy lady. Especially yesterday, when my team played on TV--and won! We may be Kansas City residents, but we will always be Razorback fans in our hearts. If you don't want to be severely disappointed with my conduct around my child, I suggest you skip our house on Saturdays for a while. Also, thanks grandpa for supplying the new Hog shirts for Olivia. Yes, shirts. The jersey will have its debut next week when we are on TV again, this time tangling with the national champions at our house. Go Hogs!

As a side note, Olivia's nap time also happened to be kickoff time, so we put her to bed right after this picture. Note the excitement on her face.
Also, Saturdays, this one in particular at my parent's house, also happened to be "no makeup Saturday" for me. Enjoy...yeesh!
