Sorry Grandpa Peter, Olivia is Not a Fan of Fox News!

David has promised me that he is going to watch Olivia this afternoon so that I can take a nap for a couple of hours, and my mind is absolutely racing with what I can do with TWO WHOLE HOURS of free time! A nap would be nice, but I could get so many other things done in that time. I do this in the mornings when Olivia is in her bouncy seat or laying in her crib while I shower. I start thinking, "Okay, I can sacrifice drying my hair and get a load of laundry in the washer AND check my email. Ooooh, and if I hurry, I can make David a snack and maybe make myself a sandwich and have it ready for lunchtime!" And then Olivia will either get sick of her seat or just look so cute in her crib that I will want to sit and watch her until she wakes up. In which case, the only thing that gets done is that I get a little Aveda Be Curly in my hair and add a couple more pieces to the pile of dirty clothes.

Today, however, I would like to try and go to the grocery store, finish up my thank-you cards and make some brownies to take up to French tomorrow for the wonderful nurses who took such great care of us during our stay THREE WEEKS AGO!

Which brings me to another point, Olivia is three weeks old! I can't believe it. The time has absolutely flown. She went back to the pediatrician on Wednesday and is up to 7lbs and 14oz. I was so worried because the week before she was only at 7lbs and 6oz when she should have been back to her birth weight, at least. I almost cried when the nurse told me her weight! I'm not starving my baby!!!

We had Olivia's newborn pictures taken yesterday and she was so wonderful through all of the pictures! I was so worried that she would be really fussy, but she was great! Daniel and Laura took pictures for almost 2 hours...yes, Olivia got a little cranky during parts of the session, but overall was so good! (I can't wait to see the pictures!!!) And, she slept for a 5 hour stretch last night and then went right back down after a feeding and slept for almost 4 more hours! See, who needs a nap!?

Anyway, so that the title of this blog has some bearing on the blog itself, here are a couple of pictures of Olivia in a CNN onesie that her Uncle Ryan got for her!
