The First of Olivia's Christmas Gear

Olivia got dressed up in a little Christmas dress for a pic or two. Don't worry Mom and Dad, you will see her in the Santa outfit too. I really liked this picture of her, though it got vetoed for the Christmas card by Nicole. I think it is one of the best pics I have taken of her, minus the left foot movement. I think the lighting is good, and she is a peach in that outfit by the tree.
Anyway, she is doing much better now that we got her milk allergy figured out and put her on a special formula. She inherited that from her dad. We had to take her to a Peds GI specialist in Omaha and he put her on Neocate, hella expensive, but works, and now we have a happy baby. In Omaha last week we stopped by Von Maur, were there about an hour, and walked out of the store moments before the shooting started. Surreal moment, and lots of what ifs run through your head.
Ok, I have to get up in 3 hours for an ER shift, and I need a wee bit o sleep. I have to show you, and proudly so, why sleep will be uncomfortable and I will be walking around like an old man tomorrow....

Travis, It is adorable,but then I am Grandma and maybe just a wee little partial. Keep the pics coming for Dad and I, we love to see them! Can't wait for you all to come home for Christmas. I am so very happy she and Nicole are doing so much better. Give them hugs from Gram and Granps.....

Travis, didn't you wear that same outfit last year for Christmas? I'm glad to see you could find it in a smaller size.

Glad you got out of Von Maur before all the trouble started.

Travis said...

Thanks mom. Hugs given.

Jamie- You were right about the i-stat CK-40K3462.17, it really speeds the serosal mesothelial cell workups. You should push your hospital to get one.

Tony- Close on the outfit. Same dress, but I wore fishnets and leopard heels with it.
