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 :)

Backyard pool

Last year we put up a pool in the backyard and it did wonders for Emily's confidence in water and we're hoping it'll do the same for her sister. Olivia still screams and cries every time we rinse her hair, so I wasn't sure how she'd react. In the pool she prefers to keep her head dry, but tolerates the splashing surprisingly well. In fact, she took to it all much quicker than I expected. Here are some pix from this weekend :)

I am so glad to see Olivia in the pool. Jack loves the water. Craig could barely pull him out of the pool today (after more than an hour). The girls both look very comfortable.

Enjoy the summer,
