Valentine's Day and 10 Months!

Today is officially Olivia's 10 month birthday and we just "celebrated" her first Valentine's Day too!  So, it was time for another photo shoot by our favorite photographer!  :)  Grandma bought this beautiful dress for Olivia to wear at Christmas time but she never had the opportunity to wear it.  It's red and perfect for this photo shoot!  It is truly amazing how fast she has grown over the past 10 months and the amount of things she does now is remarkable.  Here is our beauty!

She is just the best!!

As you know, most of my posts are about little Olivia and what she's up to.  But, this time, I'm writing about me.  I have been doing Yoga for about 6 months and I am hooked.  It's great when you have such a fabulous instructor!  Her name happens to be Olivia and she is fantastic!  You can learn all about her here.  She comes into the office twice a week for 2 weekly sessions.  Lee attends her Wednesday class and I attend her Monday class.  We both love it and even have her DVDs so we can practice at home.  In fact, this Sunday, she is teaching a "Couples Yoga" class.  Should be fun!!  Anyway, since I started, I can definitely feel myself getting stronger and more flexible.  Yesterday I hit a milestone and was able to do "Bird of Paradise". I searched for a good video so you can get an idea what it looks like, this is the best one I could find that didn't have an annoying advertisement for you to view first!

I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself!

Also, I started the Insanity workout on January 30th and am definitely feeling a difference in my stamina and muscle tone.  Along with eating better, I hope that 2011 is a year of change for me!  So far, I already feel so much healthier and am in better shape than I have been in a long time!  I just have to stay motivated and stick with it and I think it will be a fabulous year!

Crawling Everywhere.....

Olivia is definitely on the move.  She is getting from point A to point B in no time at all!  Don't blink or she'll be on the other side of the room!  This maneuver she learned from her older cousin.  I have proof!

See where she got it?

The Biebs

Andrew is definitely not too thrilled about Olivia's newest addiction.....Justin Bieber.  Ok, well, it's my fault.  The other day, I picked her up from school and like any other day, I sang to her!  Only this time, I sang a little diddy called "Baby".  Well, I looked in the rear view mirror and both of her arms were up and swaying back and forth.  So, I knew she was a fan!  So, what else was I to do but download the song and play it over the stereo.....

As annoying as this song is.....she LOVES it!  Don't worry, I will find something else for her to love, but I just love how much she gets into this one!
