I just thought I would post a few of my favorite pictures. Some with grandma and Pap, some with dad and cousin and some with Aunt Kimmy.

Olivia is doing just fine. We have early intervention coming in today to help with her speech.

Enjoy the pictures!

I just thought I would share some pictures of Olivia and big brother Michael. My heart melts when I see them together.

Michael just took his teacher's test and will get his results within a couple of days to see if he passed. He will be a senior next year. We are VERY proud of him....he made the Dean's list the last two semester's!!!!!

As for Olivia, we take her to Children's Hospital in Philadelphia on Wednesday to get a CT scan of her head....we then go from there with the results. We pray everything will be o.k.

Bye for now,

Thank you all SO much for giving Olivia such a warm welcome! She is taking her nap right now, so I am able to post a little. She is only taking one nap a day, but she is sleeping all night...yeaaah! Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) got back to us today and set her appointment for February 18th in the morning. I can't wait to get her evaluated so we know for sure what is going on and where we will have to go from here. I will also feel better knowing we are getting 2 opinions on her health status. All we DO know for SURE is that she is a happy baby as you can see by her pictures. I just LOVE that smile of hers! Don't get me wrong, she has her "cranky" times too, but for the most part she seems to be bonding to Joe and I quite well.

Uh-oh, I hear a cry...gotta go! Enjoy the pics and I will Keep you posted!

p.s. I also want to thank a great lady and friend for offering to let us use her condo that is 2 minutes from CHOP just in case we needed it....Thank you from the bottom of our hearts "D"!!!!!

I have to apologize to everyone for taking SO long to post....I am finally getting a routine down and I can take some time out from chasing Olivia around to post. We are having a BLAST bonding with her and getting her used to her new home. She is doing good sleeping also. She takes about an hour and a half nap in the day and goes to bed around 8:00. She wakes up around 6:30-7:00am.

She had her first visit with Dr. Gordina last Thursday and Joe and I went for all her results yesterday. Everything came back good for the most part....Dr. Gordina had concerns about her soft spot on her head closing already (being that her head only measures that of a five month old). Joe and I will go to CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) to have her evaluated. We pray that this will not be a concern and she will not need any kind of surgery.

We are SO happy to finally have her home! Thanks to all my friend blogger's for being SO patient with me....I KNOW I have been a BAD sorry. I promise I will try to be better....ha-ha!

As you can see in the picture, Olivia is now a Pittsburgh Steeler fan! GO STEELERS!!!!!!!

Bye for now,
