A Lot of Loveliness With a Wee Bit of Rotten

As we prepare for Olivia's first birthday (say it with me, OH MY MERCY!), I realized that this blog has become more about what we do and where we go (and what we eat) and less about Olivia's little milestones. Which is okay, because it's telling the story of our lives. But, I did want to update you on a few of the new things that are going on in her life.

  • A mouth full of teeth - Olivia has 4 teeth w/ a 5th poking through the top
  • Ants in her pants - the girl does NOT sit still and her latest thing is dancing, dancing, dancing!
  • A love of books - the only time she really sits, besides to eat, is when she is hearing a story being read to her or is "reading" one herself. She's got this new thing she does with a couple of the peek-a-boo books she has where she sort of sighs a surprise when the object hiding is shown. And, she's smart enough to know what to pull back to find it.
  • Waddle waddle waddle - Olivia has been walking for the last 3 weeks and just keeps taking more and more solo steps.
  • Olympics-bound - Every Tuesday, we go to our gymnastics class up in SLO. It's a load of fun to watch her bounce around everywhere.
  • Bye-bye Lypsyl - Hello toothbrushes
  • Snoooozin - I won't say what she did last night because I don't want to jinx it, but let's just say things are getting better.
Here are a few pictures I took yesterday. I'll try to take a few at gymnastics today and post those....eventually!

She is growing up toooo fast for my comfort. I want to enjoy this stage of her life a bit longer. I can't wait to see her this weekend and load her with kisses and hugs!
