When he saw that she was watching him from the window, he took a little break to play peek-a-boo with her.
Olivia is doing much better today, the course of antibiotics has really helped a lot. She's almost back to herself again. When she saw the snow outside this morning, she stood at the back door forever trying to figure out what happened out there.

I don't know how this has happened but somehow the flu bug has made it's way into our house. So far only Olivia has been bit by the nasty little critter. What surprises me even more is that both of the girl's had the flu shot. Go figure!
Wednesday night she started to get a fever and by Thursday morning it had reached 40.5, I had been up with her most of the night so that was it, I figured it was high enough to earn us a trip to the doctor. Her Pediatrician says's she has the stomach flu and it should pass. I just have to make sure she still gets enough fluids which she is. She told me that if she gets worse I'm to take her to emerg where they will probably admit her. Whatever is going around is really bad from what she tells me. She has already admitted a handful of children for the same thing. Well I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she doesn't get any worse, and that Avery doesn't get it. She hasn't thrown up today so I'm taking that as a positive. So far today she has had lots of water some dry toast and a couple bites of banana. More than I expected.
This picture is of her the day before the little bugs invaded her little skinny body. I haven't had a smile from her since

Today was tidy up day at our house, so when the girl's saw me pull out my swiffer they were all eye's. I usually clean the house while they are napping so today was a whole new adventure for them.
Avery started to give me her little growl that she gives when she wants something so I handed her the swiffer and she was off! She knew exactly what to do with it. She walked around the house for about 10 minutes sweeping the floor. And of course she had the biggest smile on her face the entire time.
Olivia stayed in the background watching. I think she was trying to figure out what she was doing.
We are now officially off of all baby food. The girl's have made it quite clear they no longer want anything to do with it. So... this mean's a lot more work and planning on my part. My dilemma is not reflux anymore it is texture. Olivia is and always has been a real texture baby. So if something doesn't feel right in her mouth, it and everything else comes right back out. If anyone has any kid tested and approved recipes I would so appreciate it if you could forward them to me.
In case not everyone has noticed I have added a few new links on the right hand side of the page. These are some other preemies who were also born at Mac. They are all absolutly amazing! The other site is "Growing Your Baby". Lisa does a fabulous job at keeping this site updated. Everyone should take a look.

Over the holidays Olivia started kissing everything. She kisses her dolls and any stuffed animals she has. Even her blankie gets a kiss every once in a while. Yesterday I asked her to give Avery a kiss. When she kissed her, Avery thought it was so funny that the more Avery laughed the more kisses she got.
It is so sweet because she doesn't do the typical baby opened mouth kiss. She actually puckers up!
Over Christmas she also started to put two words together. Her new thing to say now when she is finished her bottle is "that's it". Yesterday Avery put her first two words together as well. She says "all done" when she is finished her bottle. She is not as clear as Olivia is but I can still understand what she is saying.
They are progressing in their development so quickly these days. Every day when Brian comes home from work I have something new to tell him.
It's hard to believe that our little micro preemie babies are actually toddlers now.
