This Totally Makes Up For the Lack of Sleep

Yesterday morning when Olivia woke up , I went into the crib to get her and as soon as she saw me she gave me THE BIGGEST SMILE. I'm no dummy, this morning I grabbed the video camera before getting her. The smile took a little longer to show up, but it was there nonetheless.

(Please do your best to ignore my voice...just focus your attention on the pretty baby!)



My friend Cole had emailed me when Olivia was first born and was asking me how the middle of the night feedings were going. She went on to say that those were her favorites with her little boy Olin. I thought she was insane, but I now totally agree. I miss her so much when she is sleeping and it's such a joy to be the first one she sees when she wakes up.

And, this post is dedicated to my Aunt Patty who was sick of seeing the poop pictures from the last post, to my friend Amy Culley who got us the Miracle Blanket before we even knew that Olivia was a girl and has allowed me to get between 5 and 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep, and to my brother who got us the video camera! Thanks!

Thanks for sharing her good morning smile for her mommy with us. BTW your baby talk to Olivia is very sweet, besides how else do you converse with a baby except "baby-talk"?? Aunt Lauren if you think you have fallin in love with Olivia already, you just wait till you get to hold her and get some baby kisses. Trust me you won't want to let her go.

She is so cute! I love her little smile.
I hope the miracle blanket serves you through a restful 4 to 5 months.
Oh - and I changed my name officially.
