First Haircut

So Miss. Sophie was in dire need of a bang trim. Being the good mother that I am I just whipped out my scissors and went to work.

                                                                  Before, hair in the face.

                                                                     During, look how good she is!

After:  Gone is my little baby

Santa's Here!

Okay so Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. I love it! Ask any of my family and they will tell you how nuts I go for this holiday. I love decorating, I love baking, I love wrapping presents, I LOVE Christmas music, I LOVE it all. Well one of my favorite things is seeing Santa and the magic behind believing in Santa. I never want my girls to not believe, its just magical. One night last week we went out to eat and after dinner we went for a walk and Santa was there just getting ready to leave. Olivia was SO excited to see him. She ran over and gave him a huge hug (unfortunately the camera wasn't quite ready). It was so sweet to watch though and I hope that I never forget how precious it was. She really believes in him and the magic behind all that is Santa Claus.  
                                              Look at that smile, she was a happy girl!

Another December Another Hospital...

Well we are back in the hospital.  Sophie has pnuemonia again and is in to be monitored to make sure it doesn't get worse.  She is doing good, we arrived here yesterday and so far she hasn't had to have an i.v. put in.  They say that if she keeps drinking she probably won't have to have one.  She did have a fever but that is has gone.  We are hoping that with the antiboitic she is on that she should make a quick recovery.  Well quick for Sophie.  Since she has her underlying breathing problems it will probably be a couple of weeks before she is completley up and running.  If she keeps going like she is and not getting worse hopefully we will only be in here for a few days.  The nice thing is though that this hospital we are in just opened a year ago, and just opened there pediatric floor two months ago.  So everything is brand new and REALLY nice.  Sorry for no pictures Damon forgot to pack my camara.  Hopefully he will bring it for me, so I can get some of Sophie in her hospital gown.  On the plus side since Sophie isn't feeling well I have been getting ALOT more snuggles than usuall, I'm am taking them all.  She is so sweet.  She is pretty terrified every time a nurse or tech comes in though.  They have had to suction her out a few times and that is the worst.  I have to leave the room.  Her screaming and then the gagging she does is just to much for me to handle.  I think Sophie will be very glad when she gets to go home, we all will!
