Sorry for the delays in updates lately. Life gets in the way sometimes!
Olivia is doing great! She amazes us everyday with her new tricks.
She is talking in full sentences. A few of my personal favorites:
- Mommy, where are you? Called out from her crib.
- I want to hug you! The morning I was leaving on a business trip (gone three nights).
The girl still loves her music. Sweet Caroline, Bad Day, Boogie Shoes, American Idol’s Taylor Hicks – she loves it. She can cut a serious rug too shaking her booty in time to the music.Â She can also sing the ABC’s song.
She tells you she’s TWO and holds up one finger.Â When I try and show her to hold up two fingers, she holds up five.
She loves coloring, markers, stickers – anything crafty.Â She will sit for hours coloring.Â We have to keep an eye on her or she’ll dig crayons out of the art box and take off with them down the hall.
Olivia LOVES her big sister. She says “I play nice” with Maddie.Â They’re finally at the point where they’ll run off and play in one of the bedrooms, dressing up, having a tea party or playing school together. It’s really sweet!
Olivia is quite attached to Arnie.Â To the point that if he’s not home when she’s going to bed, she has a terrible time settling down and then wakes up in the middle of the night.Â Arnie had to travel for business (first time EVER) the first week of June. Olivia woke up every single night he was gone.Â I had to travel for business this past week and she didn’t wake up one night (little stinker!)
So all in all everything is going great.Â The summer weather definitely agrees with Olivia. Even with all the rain and damp weather we’ve had her coloring has been excellent.
I’ll update again soon!
