My girls are growing up!

So many changes! Ella is rolling over from her tummy to her back and today she started making a new noise and silly faces. She recently fought off a cold which was beyond exciting for us. Olivia was sick and Ella needed some O2 a few nights. She was sneezing quite a bit but it never turned into anything more then that. I can't even express what it was like to watch my tiny little preemie with lung disease actually FIGHT off a cold!! The power of breastmilk!
Olivia is potty training and doing a WONDERFUL job. She hasn't had any accidents and only wears a diaper for sleeping. Today she had her first poop in the potty. She gets so proud of herself. We dance around the house and she gets to have a jelly bean after she pees or poops in the potty. We're SO proud of her!! We're working on getting settled into our new house. I still have so much unpacking to do but we've got a lot of Olivia's bedroom set up. She wanted a princess bedroom so we gave her one! :) She goes to sleep in her princess bed at night and usually ends up crawling in bed with me in the middle of the night. She's growing up TOO fast!!!
We'll be spending Easter up north with Shane's grandma's as we usually do. Olivia is excited and has been asking to see her Great Grandma for the last two days. We're looking forward to being able to spend some time with her as well. It's always a joy to see her and spend time at her house!
