Here is Uncle Mike going to visit her
This was the first time Mark got to hold her. She was two days old.
This was supposed to be the first picture. This was what she looked like when we first got to the NICU. The really scary/sad part was she was one of the healthiest babies back there. So say a little prayer for all the babies in the NICU and for their families.

and up and down.
Things are coming together for the party. Wendy is working on some super cute favors but I am going to wait to show everyone those later. I have the decorations ready. Nonni found her Winnie the Pooh cake pan. I am trying to figure out if I am going to do homemade pizza or order pizza..I was going to take the day off to make them but then I ended up taking today off to take her to the doctor...so I hate to miss two Fridays in a row. (Yikes, that means she is one week away from being one!) I won the Little People Zoo..although Wendy did ended up finding it Target. Mark picked up some cute clothes at the Elder Beerman in Morgantown. It is going out of buisness.
Now for the doctor. Lydia has had this cough for two weeks now. I finally called the doctor and she has a mild form of RSV. So she has a chest cold. No treatment yet. The doctor wants to give her two more weeks to try and fight it off on her own. Especially since she is not having too much of a problem with it. She is now 20 pounds, they did not measure her height but we have a follow up/one year visit on Feb 4th. But from some of the pictures we took, she is long and lean. I will post those tomorrow.

She does love to read....She might not look like me but she is getting some of her habits and eating traits from me..her love of cherrios, peas and bread and her use of the word "cool". What a weird word for a 11 month old to know you say...I guess I say this word quite often. Not only has Lydia picked up this word without us trying to get her to say it, she repeats it everytime I say it..which now I know is all the time!

Here we are after going down the hill in her sled from Nonni and Poppi. She really did not know what to think of it. She did not or get upset but really did not laugh. We went down the hill pretty slow. It was a quick wet snow and I was afraid to go to fast and lose control of the sled.
I love this picture that Miranda took of her. She does such a good job of capturing the best pictures of Lydia.
I pulled her around on the porch in Braylon's sled. I have never seen one like that before. She liked that ride pretty well.
Here was Braylon making some snowballs afterwards. We had a such a good time. It is so crazy to post these pictures from Thursday when last night Miranda, the kids and I were walking and sweating. They were super cute talking to each other in the strollers...

Here is Lydia on Christmas day with our cousin Andrew. We traveled all over the place that day. We did Santa in Fairmont, then more Santa in Mannington, then we went to Christmas dinner at my Aunt Louise and Uncle Mike's house in Fairmont then off to our Cousins' Beverly and Tony's house for dinner number 2!

We got this costume from Miranda and Mark put her in the costume one day. I cannot believe she tolerated it so well.
