Silly Olivia....

While playing around with the camera tonight trying to capture her standing up, I caught her in a bit of a tired moment!

Laughing at Juggling......

I'm not quite sure why Olivia thought this was so funny, but I started juggling with her little shapes toy and she was just cracking up. We caught some of her laughs on camera, but this isn't nearly as funny as it was when she first started.....uncontrollable laughter!! She even tries to juggle!!

More Dancing.....

I tell you what...this kid LOVES to dance! I was able to shoot this video of her that pretty much captures all her moves!

Annnnnd.....We're Standing!

Olivia is officially a stander! Over the past few days, she has discovered she can stand up if she pulls herself up. Belissa told us she stood up in her crib at school last week but we hadn't seen her do it at home yet....until tonight!

Tonight after her bedtime story and bottle, I put her in her crib and she immediately crawled over and pulled herself up! We watched her on the monitor for a while and she continued to sit down and stand up over and over. I love when she hits new milestones. Makes me so happy! :)

Old Videos......

I was looking through the pictures I have taken on my phone and I came across some videos I had taken of the little princess a long time ago! Enjoy!

Bananas, Bach and Bath Time.......

This morning I fed Olivia a banana. She wasn't sure what to do with it at first, but once she got the hang of it, she loved it! This banana was extra ripe and I'm pretty sure she doesn't like things that are mushy based on her reaction when she got it on her hands. She liked it so much I gave her the other half for dinner!

Later on this morning Olivia and I were listening to some music and when I flipped on the Classical channel, this is what happened!

Olivia loves Bach's "Concerto in D Minor". I'm a proud mother!!

Tonight, I finally graduated her from the infant/toddler plastic tub to the "Big Girl" tub. She wasn't sure what to think but ended up loving it! It was hard to take the video while staying close enough to her, but you get the idea!

Another fun activity today was rearranging Olivia's room. We simply switched the crib and glider around so the crib wasn't right by the window. When she started playing with the blinds (don't worry, the cords were out of her reach) I knew it was time to switch things around. We were having to pull the blinds up during her naps and then she wasn't sleeping too well because of the sunlight. Oh, the sacrifices we make for our kids! :) It was fun to move things around anyway. Makes her room like nice and big now.

Other than that, it was a pretty lazy weekend with lots of playtime and rest. Other than Lee shooting a race this morning, we were home all weekend to enjoy having no plans! We have a lot of busy weekends coming up, so this was perfect. On to the next week........
