Just a quick update on our favorite Little Miss

Miss Olivia is doing great!

She is SO chatty! Talking in full sentences. Loves playing with Maddie – they actually will go into Maddie’s room and play together.

I was brushing her teeth last night and counted her teeth – she has 16 so her 2 year molars have not popped in yet. I scheduled her appointment with a pediatric dentist, Dr. Cipes for August 8. Dr. Cipes is very familiar with heart children. I am pleased that we can go there and Olivia won’t be the “token” heart patient. Our heart buddy, Lily went to visit Dr. Cipes this week and they gave us a glowing review.

Hard to believe our girlie is going to be 2 in just 5 days. Where has the time gone? Hard to believe two years ago yesterday I had my last Non stress test and was running around my house nesting and packing for Maddie staying with my parents. Hard to believe it’s been almost two years since Olivia showed everyone who’s going to be running this show by showing up 24 hours early.

I’ve been in a musical mood lately and have been listening to the iPod almost constantly. There’s this one song that describes perfectly how I feel about my husband and my girls. We are truly blessed and every day we share together is a gift. Be it cuddling Maddie Rose first thing in the morning; listening to Maddie read me a story; rocking Olivia right before bed; having Olivia touch my necklace and ask “Don’t pull?” and smiling that devilish smile; Olivia’s special hugs she shares with just me; listening to the girls talking and playingor singing together; laughing with Arnie … I couldn’t ask for more.

I could not ask for more, Edwin McCain

Lying here with you

Listening to the rain
Smiling just to see, the smile upon your face
And these are the moments I thank God that I’m alive
And these are the moments
I’ll remember all my life
I found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more

Looking in your eyes
Seeing all I need
Everything you are, is everything to me

And these are the moments
I know heaven must exist
And these are the moments, I know all I need is this
I have all I’ve waited for (yeah)
And I could not ask for more…

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
And every dream I’ve had has come true

yeah, right here in this moment, is right where I’m meant to be
Oh, here with you here with me…
Ooh, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

And these are the moments I thank God that I’m alive
and these are the moments I’ll remember all my life
I’ve got all I’ve waited for yeah
And I could not ask for more

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
And every dream I’ve hads come true
yeah, and right here in this moment is right where I’m meant to be
here with you here with me…

I could not ask for more than the love you give me
‘Cuz it’s all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more (more)
ooh and I could not ask for more
