My Momcation Thus Far

After having my brother/sister-in-laws (and their sweet pup Pepper) living with us for 3 weeks in December and then having my parents and brother (and his sweet pup Peyton) staying with us for ten days* only 2 days after the in-laws moved out, it's time for me to have a week of four extra hands and a little less responsibility!

I arrived in Arizona Thursday night after a fairly smooth plane ride out.  Olivia is so much antsier than she was a few months ago.  We went through an Elmo puppet, two squeak toys, some puffs, yogurt melts, 6 or 7 different songs, and a friendly passenger behind us all while clutching a Lypsyl tube. (We also managed to learn a new trick!)  We were greeted at the airport by my parents and I had chicken tetrazzini, overnight salad and green beans waiting for me when we got home.

 Olivia is starting to prefer feeding herself a lot more.

And by feeding herself, I mean making a huge mess.

This morning, my aunt and uncle came over and brought Olivia her own little laptop (which means there are now FOUR of them in this house) and visited with us for awhile.  Mom and I spent the afternoon taking Olivia shopping.  (I mean, duh, what else is there to do when you get three ladies together?!?!)


During our flight in, I taught Olivia how to eat like a baby bird!  I'm going to teach her how to give kisses this way!


 I don't think Nana's too upset about getting those kisses!

We also managed to get in a little dress-up time in preparation for the upcoming Super Bowl!

GO COLTS!

*I enjoyed every minute of them being there!

Oh what fun we are having. Poppy says he is out numbered with all us girls in the house. BUT I know Poppy and he is loving every minute of it. We are heading to the Swap Meet in Mesa today. I know sounds like fun times but we are going to pick up one particular item that is sold there. In-N-Out may be on the agenda also. Can't wait to see what else baby girl has up her sleeve to show us.

I can't believe how Olivia gets more and more beautiful every time I see her! Holy cow! Enjoy your time in Arizona.

I love Miss Olivia. I don't even know what else to express!
