This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Olivia's homemade violin

The girls were both fascinated a few weeks ago when their cousin Sara played her violin for them. Emily got to try playing it and Olivia's been asking to see the pictures of it ever since, pointing to my laptop and saying, "biolin, biolin." Olivia decided that a comb and half a plastic Easter egg can make a fine violin! She tucked the comb under her chin and announced that she had a violin and insisted that I take her picture!

Here are a few of those clips that I've pieced together. It's almost 2 minutes and in the middle she adds some fancy footwork that resembles Irish step dancing. ...and I thought she was Chinese!

Yes she does look like she's doing a little Irish jig!!
Looks like her hair is starting to grow out a bit. Karyn, how much does Olivia weigh and what size clothes does she wear? (If you don't mind me asking) I am trying to get an idea for what size clothes to bring for Sydney.
