5 Weeks...

I know that last week I said that the weekly posts were done...but I missed posting on Olivia's 1 month b-day this past Saturday...so this is it (maybe...)

Olivia is still a prefect baby girl. She is so happy and sweet. Look at these great pictures...she is so alert and happy!!
She is still eating about 2 oz. every 3 hours. She goes 4 hours for one stint at night...
She only fusses when she is hungry...so she is pretty easy to read.
She has gained a full pound since birth. She is now weighing 8 lbs. 2. oz. That puts her between the 10th and 25th percentiles...
She was diagnosed with laryngotracheomalacia last week...long name...and a little confusing. She has weak cartilage around her trachea, allowing it to collapse when she breathes in. We were concerned because we could hear her breathing very loud and it sounded labored. Our pediatrician says that she is getting all of the oxygen that she needs...but we are bring referred to an ENT. Apparently she is in no pain or harm and she will grow out of this by 6-8 months old...lets hope so! I will know more after meeting with the ENT in February...
She gets cuter and cuter every single day.
She is still in newborn diapers and clothing...but she is starting to fill them out!!
We just love her soooo much.

Adorable! Praying for her - that's scary that she has something going on that you don't know much about. Hope she outgrows it quick.

What a cutie little sweet and tiny muffin. Seriously!
But how scary to hear that she's having tracheal problems. I will keep her in my prayers.

Awww...love her little smile!

My friend's baby had the exact same thing with his trachea. However, he is now 7 months old and has pretty much outgrown it!
