The picture below makes me crazy with happiness. I can't wait to take a million more like it in the coming months, once Marc is back. Most of them will probably be Marc chasing Olivia around as she is more than mobile now. Her crawling is adorable...her little legs get all caught up in her PJs. Sometimes she forgets exactly how it works and trys to move both legs as one, but she's getting it.
Last night while I talked with my dad on the phone, she "read" to us, ie she shrieked and ripped the cover off of Pat the Bunny, before I could get it out of her hands. She also mimics a lot of speech now...a tiny "bye" or "eat" will sometimes echo when I talk to her.

I started my new rotation last week at St. Vincent's emergency room. So far I would have to say its the best of the previous 6 rotations. I worked on St. Patrick's night; it wasn't as busy as you would have thought. There was plenty of drunken foolishness which led people to the ER with facial lacerations and injured knees. Nothing too serious, though. I really enjoy the orthopaedic cases. The orthopaedic resident is going to let me aspirate the next knee effusion. I'm working 3 12 hour shifts a week so hopefully I'll be able fly home to see Olivia and Paige.

This picture was taken in February at the carousel at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga.

As the fierce and undomesticated infant readies herself for nap time, she raises her head as if to strike an unexpecting passerby. Posted by Picasa
