Where do I start?
It has only been 1 month, but I feel like there are so many nicknames for you already.
Let me begin with your most classic face...
the Worry Wart look...however, I'm not a fan of calling you anything with the word 'wart' in it
...so we've changed it to "little grandmother" or little "abuela"
Your looks of concern and worry are too funny
We keep telling you to relax, and not fret
And then you eventually realize all is well in the world (at least where your world is concerned)
Next nickname for you: Peanut.
You are so tiny and petite! You now weigh 7 1bs 14 oz (I weighed you while we were at your sister's Doctor's appointment today), but I'm not worried. I know you will catch up since your brother and sister were really small too.
When your sister was born, and in the hospital, they called her Peanut too. They said her name was longer than she was...the same goes for you, Olivia! =)
You are nursing like a champ now, even though it has taken us a while to find our rhythm. I wouldn't say we are perfect yet since Mommy still feels a little clumsy and intimidated with it all, but the fact you are gaining weight is a good sign. I am truly so thankful to be able to do this with you, Olivia, as I was never able to with your brother or sister, and Im enjoying our time together while you nurse...especially when we get to pray together. These are turning into some of my most cherished moments of the day.
When you're not looking so worried about everything, you have quite a calm, peaceful nature about you
There are so many moments when I think you look exactly like your brother...like in this picture
Or exactly like your sister, like you do here
You are such a joy, my sweet girl, and not a day goes by where I don't thank God for you
You fill our home with even more love
Don't feel bad though, we all have our moments.
You are simply perfect for our family.
We love you, Olivia Olga Nelson, to the moon and stars and beyond.
