To Have and To Hold


Some babies have pacifiers or blankies or lovies that they just HAVE to have grasped in their little hands at all times. Wouldn't that be so cute if Olivia was like that? My friend Amy sent her an adorable little lamb lovie when she was born (because she knows how I like all my accoutrements to match) and Olivia sleeps with that at night and during naps. But, when she's outside her crib...there is ONE thing that she pretty much always has to have in her hands. It's not a lovie. It's not a blanket. It's not a pacifier. No, it's not even a little stuffed animal. Check out her obsession in the following pictures - and I PROMISE you, I didn't pose her in any of them.


Okay, so the Lypsyl chapstick is her true love, but Magnum's collar is a close second!


Gotta have it when she plays.


She even keeps ahold of it when she crawls.


She's discovering that it's not so easy to crawl with BOTH of them in her hands.


"I'll loan it to you...but only for a second!"


I love this one because you can see her TWO little teefers.


I guess if it isn't Magnum's dog collar it might as well be his leash.


Here she is teaching her new penguin friend about the joys of Lypsyl.


And, because her hair is starting to get a little unruly (as you can see in some of those pictures), here is a picture of her with one of her new barrettes. My friend Amy sent her a couple of them on Wednesday - the kitty cat in the first picture - and yep, we've already ordered four more! (And, yeah, Amy sends some pretty cool gifts!)

*And before anybody gets their panties in a bunch, David glued the cap onto the Lypsyl container so it can't come off in her mouth and we make sure we are watching her when she has it.

She is too adorable I don't care what she has in her hands. I LOVE all these pictures. But my goodness she looks older already and we just saw her a week ago. I love, love, love that baby.

I was going to comment that you were a good Mommy and Daddy and glued the cap on for her but you beat me to the punch! Don't worry, after Kiel and I use our Lypsyl up we'll glue that sucker together and give Livi her favorite, favorite toy.

All those pics rock, btw. She honestly just keeps getting cuter and cuter!!!!

Those Swedes sure make good chapstick!

No kidding they do! I got that for Christmas too and my first thought was "That's what they call chapstick in Norway." Well, it's from Sweden, but close enough. Love it. And Olivia just keeps getting cuter and cuter. She's really growing up and not looking like such a newborn anymore. Beautiful little girl. :)

Well I know what to get Miss Olivia for Christmas next year! She wants to keep thos beautiful little lips soft! Great photos! She is really growing up too fast. I can't wait to see her in a couple of weeks. Big kiss to Olivia for me.
