Grandma ordered Olivia this little bear that says the Lord's Prayer. Now, no offense to Gram, she couldn't have known when she ordered it, but, it is the cheapest stuffdie that Olivia owns. You know how soft the fur is on stuffdies these days? This is not that...its the old school kind and instead of having separate jammies that are removable, its jammies are actually part of the body and its that weird material that kind of catches on your skin, know what I mean? That being said, Olivia has ADORED this thing since Grandma gave it to her, she doesn't even make it talk, she just loves on it...it's so funny! Anyway, these shots were taken after a nap in which she insisted we take him out of the crib and bring him with us.
This is kisses...
Olivia LOVES this bird so much, but, he still does not have a warm feeling for her...its so funny...you can just hear her say to him, "come here bird, I will LOVE you and hold you REAL tight"....we couldn't keep him away from Owen when he was Olivia's age. In fact, Owen did get a hold of him a few times and held him "real tight"! ;O)
I thought it made a good black/white shot too...
This is one of many beautiful Mother's Day gifts from Owen. He put red dye in the water to color the flower for me, so sweet!
Since the weather warmed up, we've been taking Olivia out to play some. She would much rather be outside 24/7 than play indoors. In fact, it's getting to be a problem, especially when there's a limited amount of activities outside for a little girl who would rather scoot than walk!! Although, she is walking more and more without any instigation!!
This is a terrible pick, but, i thought it was cute anyway. I have some video of it that's no doubt better.
On May 17th, after several weeks of spring like weather and after the last of the snow had FINALLY melted from the yard, it started snowing!!! It snowed for TWO days straight!! I believe it made for our longest snow season on record...so not a record I had hoped to break!!!
Believe it or not, the daffodil above is under that snow somewhere and survived and is still blooming!! Talk about small miracles!!
