Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Another Monday

I called our nurse today (Pam- super nice women.) She is so helpful and quick to answer all my questions. She explained what night sweats (totally soaked through all pj's from head to toe)were and why we would be looking for them (signs of Hogkins disease) which was reassuring because I explained how Livi is and she said it sounded like normal baby sweat. I also asked about the gas and after we discussed it we figured out it was probably from too much dairy. I have stopped giving her whole milk and will start it again in small amounts next time. She is also going to talk to our doctor and find out what would be the reasons that he would admit us to the hospital again. That way I will know what he is looking for and be able to look for them also. That will help me to feel like I can do something between visits. And also plan a little better for each visit (to pack or not to pack that is the question)

Thanks for today...
I forgot to thank my aunt Lisa and Marmie for calling yesterday.
Yummy lasagna from Pauline Williams (and family)
A sweet card from Marmie
The goodie bag from Beth Chase. I am going to have the smoothest skin around. and the best breath. Thanks Beth.

I would love to have some thank you cards for the nurses on the 7th floor that I could drop off. I listed all of their names in a previous blog but you could also write a not to the 7th floor nurses or the West Wing Nurses or something along that line. Just brief notes that are signed your name and friend of Alivia Haughery. I am going to go up and drop off a note from me on Thursday so if anyone else sends messages by then I will drop them off. Otherwise try to get them to me by next Thursday. our mailing address is: 2768 Lititz Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601. It would be so amazing to shower them with thanks.

Hey Alivia's Mommy,

I have enjoyed reading about you and your family on this website. You probably don't remember me, but I met you in Auburn for Beth Haughery's wedding a few years back...you had plenty of introductions that night! I wish we had more time to talk because you sound like a real genuine person who loves life. I can see why James wanted you as his wife...welcome to the family! Your faith and energy level astound me. With all you have to focus on you never miss a moment to thank everyone for what they've done for you...God bless you.

I read through your scripture readings given to you...here's one more for you:
In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials, so that the genuinesess of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 1: 6,7

The pictures of Alivia are so precious, I can't wait to meet her. Hug her for us...she is in our prayers. Tell James hello for me.

Peace in Christ,

Eric

Emily,

Every mommy needs a little pampering. I hope you're geting some rest through the night and any tiny naps you can squeeze in!

We're always praying for you, and I love it when a lot of my friends are now referring to you as if they knew you and Livi, asking how things are going and how they can pray for you. :)

Love,
Beth

Sent out a t-you today, but don't know if it'll get there for you to take by Thursday. Nevertheless, know that we'll be faithfully praying for you.

Pray for Judah if you get this message in time; he's got an EEG and neuro. eval. tomorrow at 11 a.m. Pray that he'll be still for the EEG and they'll get a good read from it. Pray that God will guide my time w/ our neurologist as well.
Thanks friend!

Love you much
