We had a bbq and hiked on Mt. Sentinel tonight. Olivia was touching the butterflies. They were OK with her getting really close to them. She was fascinated by them and the pinecones. We are enjoying Summer while it is still here.
Olivia is growing up and there is no stopping it. She is getting bigger and is wanting to learn more everyday. She will now fold her arms when it is time to pray, and sometimes close her eyes. It only lasts about 4 seconds but it is so cute. She also says something after we say "Amen" at the end. It sounds nothing like amen, and in fact changes every time, but she will say something every time we say amen. So cute.
Tonight we had a Family Home Evening about Jesus. We showed her his picture and told her about how he loves her and different things about him. She was starring at the picture so intently and listening to every word. She was definitely paying attention.
So here is an update on our cute little one...
She is so interested in learning and is doing new things everyday. She will bring you a book if she wants you to read it to her. And then sit right in your lap for a good view. She loves to shoot you with the air in a can. She thinks it's hilarious. She loves to be chased. She will just start running away for no reason so you will chase her.
She waves at everyone and will do so when I tell her to wave. Waves to daddy when I tell her its bedtime.
She says "bye".
She is so independent. She walks away without even looking to see if were following her.
She loves any and all sweets.
She loves to push everything. Chairs, grocery carts (even full ones), toys, strollers, everything.
She dances to music. It kind of looks like a convulsion, but its cute.
She loves nursery. Even though she goes with Dad and isn't official for another 3 months.
She loves people.
Shes a picky eater.
She loves dogs. Every time she spots one or even hears one barking she will make her own cute barking noise.
She thinks a lot of animals are dogs.
She loves swimming and playing in water. She knows her friends and likes playing near them and stealing their toys.
Jason & Allisha Ellis are back from serving in the Army in Germany. Good excuse to have a crawfish boil. He shipped in 60 lbs of live crawfish from Louisiana. Even Olivia was interested in the mud bugs. Good to see you Ellis fam.
