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 first Halloween

I've got door duty tonight, giving out candy, while the girls are off trick-or-treating with Daddy. Although it's Olivia's first time doing this, she's a quick study! Here is a picture I took of my snow princesses right before they left.

Today was also Olivia's first gymnastics class and she was very excited about it. The teacher said she followed directions well and fit in perfectly with all the other four and five year olds. When I asked if there were any communication problems, the teacher laughed and said there weren't...and added that she loves to say "watch me" and "look at me!" Yep, that's my girl, totally opposite from her big sister who hates to be in the lime light. Olivia loves attention and is very confident, outgoing and independent. It's funny to watch this little tiny one walk with such purpose, head held high and swinging her arms as if she's on a mission! She's our little spitfire!

Tomorrow night we're off to the circus! Another first for Olivia!
