It was a bitter sweet Thanksgiving, the first with Sweet Olivia but the first without Cousin Ricky, we all remembered him throughout the day and prayed for his family as they enter the first Holiday season without him.
Olivia was finally feeling more like herself after a horrible reaction to her shots. She had her 4 month shots on Monday and was finally starting to smile again on Thursday, Leigh was VERY worried about her and talked to the Advise Nurse at Chippenham Pediatrics numerous times during the week, 102 fever freaked Leigh out and the fact that her usually happy baby was no longer a happy baby scared her to death, Leigh lost more sleep worry about Olivia than she did in the newborn days. After all the horror stories Leigh had read about what shots can do to babies she is more than relieved to have her darling little girl back. We have decided though that Olivia will be taking her 6 month shots in several doses, not all at once, the reaction just isn't worth it.
Leigh spent the weekend decorating for Christmas, the tree is up, the Christmas Village is up and the stockings are hung by the TV with care. Our goal for the rest of the weekend is to take our Christmas Card pictures so we can get them printed in the next week or so. Olivia has her formal Christmas pictures taken tomorrow, but due to a few MAJOR scratches on her face, they may be postponed. We hope everyone had a wonderful, healthy, happy Thanksgiving.
