Three weeks!

Guess who's three weeks old today... Olivia!

The nurse she had last night made her a pretty bow for the occasion. Nothing like a tiny girl with a big bow in her hair! The nurses say they can't believe a baby born so early has so much hair already. (The lighting wasn't very good today. She threw a fit when we took the blanket off of her isolette so we quickly apologized and put it back.)

We discovered this afternoon that she might sleep with her eyes open like her daddy. I'm trying to be OK with it. ;) Olivia is doing well and still recovering from the surgery. We are hoping that she'll get to start eating again tomorrow morning. You can pray that her gut will be ready and she'll be able to start packing on the pounds.

Sucking on a paci for the first time.

Covering her eyes from the light.

Mommy and Liv earlier this week.

 Daddy changing her diaper again last night.

And, we thought she needed a three week birthday present. Tiny girl jammies and first year stickers!

Happy weekend everyone!

well she fits right into the south with that big ol' bow. And like I always said, "the bigger the bow, the better the mom." ;) Love her arm over her eyes-- kinda looks like she might be a drama queen :) Way to go Reid for being super daddy and changing those diapers-- you've got a keeper Mare! Love you and pray for all of you daily!

I found your blog through another blog, and I want to tell you how beautiful your daughter is.

I had my triplets at 25 weeks 6 days so I know what you are going through with your Olivia.

If I could get your address, I've got some things that my triplets would love to pass on to your sweet daughter. Email me at

I'm praying for the three of you!
