1 month!

of course these first four weeks have flown by!! our little girl is a month old already. luckily, her reflux is getting better with the medicine, so we are even getting some sleep. she does a good job holding her head up. she just adores cole though! she watches him and is so alert when she is awake.

here is cole at 1 month old! what do you think? do they look alike?

snow days

since cole's cuosins were in town and there was a snow storm coming we decided to go get snowed in with them in dushore. one house + four kids = insanity!! cole had a blast though. olivia is having a really rough time in the evenings. she's having screaming fits that last hours. i spoke to the doctor over the phone and they think it is reflux so hopefully the medicine will help her out! she took the time though to enjoy her first snow!!

bath time

cole wanted to help give olivia her bath today. at first i was worried how it would go but he did great. he helped wash her and rinse her and refrained from all the splashing he normally does. after the bath he helped dry her and even gave her some kisses!

dr. cole

thank goodness she loves her brother already! he is olivia obsessed. he wants to be near her most of the time. he likes to hold her, kiss her, and show her all of his toys. today she was crying with pain and he wanted to give her medicine to make her all better.

dr visit!

today was olivia's two week check-up. i took her to the doctor and was less than happy to get there to be in a room full of sick kids. typically in the afternoons they only have "well" visits. we stayed as secluded as we could since there is a bad rsv outbreak in our area.
she's our little peanut! she now weighs 8lbs, 2oz and is 21" long. that's about 30% for weight and around 50% for height.

lots of firsts

this weekend was a lot of firsts! cole took his first trip without us. he went with grandma kay down to dc with aunt amy and cat to visit nick, liz, welles, and clare. he had a great time swimming at the hotel and visiting the smithsonian!
meanwhile we stayed at home. there were lots of naps and movie watching! olivia also got her first bath!

pjs day

today was spent in pjs! we watched some movies and did some cuddling. cole wasn't in the mood to have his picture taken with olivia today, but he was more than happy to let me take it of just him. he now likes to say cheese and make the cheesey face too!

it has been so cold here and there are so many illnesses going around that we have pretty much been hibernating! we were all going a little stir crazy today, so we decided to take cole swimming. you can swim at the local hotel for a fee. cole loves swimming! he had a blast swimming with brad. olivia and i watched, ok i watched. olivia slept through the whole thing!
