Livi's First Easter

Happy Easter from our little bunny!

4 Months

4 months ago we were in Peace Arch Hospital waiting for the arrival of little Olivia Nutley. She's grown up so much in that time. Last night I made a DVD of all of our Video Camera footage that we've taken since then. In her first videos, she was a tiny wrinkled baby. In her latest videos we've got her looking around, smiling and her latest squealing.

She does that all of the time now. It's like her version of talking. Just this morning, 6:20am, I'm eating breakfast at the kitchen table by myself. I had just seen Livi and Sam sound asleep upstairs. Out of nowhere a high-pitched squeal from the bedroom. Looks like Livi's up! She does it when she's happy so thats good. She's a very happy baby. Constantly smiling and squealing. 

Long weekend ahead for us. Day off tomorrow which is nice. I think we're going to have a picnic. Sunday is Easter so we're bringing Livi to church and then a quiet dinner at home. Can't wait.

Little Canuck

Olivia in her Canucks "Onesie"
All ready for tonights Game 1 against the Chicago Blackhawks, Livi is wearing her Canucks onesie that we bought her last season. She's outgrown her hat and booties but this shirt just fits now. She may be ready for one of those pink jersey's too.

As I'm writing this, Liv is at her second swimming class with Mommy. She loved it last time and hopefully today gets the same result. Fingers crossed for no poop.

We're working on switching to bottle feeding formula which has had mixed reactions so far. We started off with a full bottle of formula. Big mistake. She wouldn't have anything to do with it. Screaming and thrashing her little head around like a shark with a fresh swimmer. We decided our next step would be a mixture of formula and breast milk. Still nothing. We couldn't decide if it was the bottle or the smell of the formula. After that we attempted gripe water (a gas relieving mixture of water and dill. Smells like pickle chips but tastes awful.) Olivia usually loves that on her dodey and she loved it in her bottle too. She drank it down and almost grabbed the bottle out of Sam's hands. So we deduced that it is not the bottle. We filled up the bottle with breast milk last night and she drank that down too. Looks like we're going to have to try adding a tiny portion of formula to the milk and "tricking" her into drinking it. She'll never know what hit her.

Dolphin Girl

Sorry for the lack of updates. Once again, things have been busy and it's hard to find the time to keep up to date. I promise to make time to keep this going for whoever still reads it.

Liv is doing very well. She keeps growing more and more every day. She's almost constantly a noise machine spitting out drivel that only she can understand. Squeaks, squeals and little yelps is her full vocabulary for now. We're still waiting on her laugh. It's very close.

Today is going to be her first time swimming. Sam is bringing her to SunGod for a Mommy-and-Me aquafit class. Hopefully she thinks it's just a big bathtub and doesn't freak out. Nana Nutley will be there taking pics of our little Dolphin girl. Well I don't suppose she'll be doing any acrobatics quite yet. She'll probably be more of a sea slug.

UPDATE: Livi had a GREAT time at swim class! She was kicking her legs squealing and almost laughing the whole time! She didn't even get upset when we got into the cold water pool for the aerobics (for mommy) portion of the class! I have a feeling she's going to be quite the little water baby! We're already looking forward to next week's class!
