It has been a long time since my last post, so I will try to give a brief update. We have settled into our new house and are loving it. Olivia has grown up so much and has learned lots. She turned one the end of October. We had a little party for her with just our family. At first she was overwhelmed with so many people there. But by the end of the party she was showing off for everyone. For Thanksgiving we went down to St. George to visit my grandparents and spend time with my family. For Christmas we were in Preston to be with Aaron's family. Holidays are so much different now with Olivia. They are so much better! I can't wait for all the future holidays with our growing family. We are expecting another baby girl! I am due the first part of April, but have had some complications. We didn't know how this pregnancy would go after Olivia came so early. The first of December we found out that there was a very good chance this baby was going to be early also. So I had a small surgery to put a cerclage in and I am getting weekly injections of a steroid to prevent contractions. I have had many, many ultrasounds and doctor visits. I have to take it very easy. I was on bed rest off and on all of December. The beginning of January the doctor put me on strict bed rest and I also received two steroid shots to develop the baby's lungs. The doctor said it could be any time now. It is still so early, but we are at least very grateful to make it this far, 3 weeks longer then when Olivia was born. Both of our parents have been amazing. They have taken turns watching Olivia while Aaron is at work. We are so grateful for them and wouldn't know what to do without them. We are so excited and blessed to have the chance to have another baby. I am now in Burley with my family and don't have any of my pictures with me. I will have to post lots later. So here is a picture of Olivia and my brother Cole. Have a great day!
