happy 2 months!

My how time flies!  How is our sweet Olivia already 2 months old?!?  To be honest, it has been a semi-rough two weeks since Olivia has been home but we love having her home with us. 

Olivia isn't a fan of sleeping at night so we are pretty sleep deprived right now and praying that passes soon!  Jason has been a tremendous help with the night shift and we just split up the night....I take the late night hours and he takes the early morning hours and that seems to be working for now. As hard as it is to be awake at night, I sure do love the quiet snuggles I get with Olivia while everyone else is sleeping.  It is a sweet time with her and I know I will miss it when she does start sleeping more. ;)

Olivia also isn't eating as great as she was when she first came home so we are really having to monitor her intake and can't let her sleep more than 4 hours at a time.  It is also hard because it takes about an hour to feed her and then she is awake for about another hour after eating so really we only have about two hours between feedings to get sleep or get things done around the house.  We go to the pediatrician tomorrow so hopefully we can change Olivia's feeding schedule a little bit so we can all get more sleep!

It has definitely been somewhat of a challenge adapting to life with Olivia at home but it is so refreshing not having to be at the hospital all day, every day.  We are loving figuring out how to do this whole two kid/family of four thing and making memories together!

If you think about it, please say a prayer for our sweet girl tomorrow.  We will begin her immunizations and we have no idea how her brain will tell her body to respond to the shots.  Also, if her fever gets too high, she is at a high risk of seizures.  We've been told she could get really sick/have severe reactions to the shots but we won't know until this first round is done.  We are praying against anything more than a sore leg and no fever reactions.  We believe that God will protect her from anything severe and are trusting the doctors to make the best decisions regarding this area of her care as we don't want to visit the hospital with this baby girl anytime soon.
