Here Olivia is pushing her walker.
She loves climbing the steps where we live.


We were playing outside and Olivia stopped to check out a butterfly.

The Beach

We went to the beach this morning. It was Olivia's first time. She loved the water and had lots of fun playing in it.
Her daddy helped her so the waves wouldn't knock her down.
Digging in the sand.
Olivia and Grandma collecting seashells.
Daddy and Olivia made a sandcastle. (It was mostly Brian building it and Olivia tearing it down, but we won't tell Olivia that.)

Olivia and the Puppy

We went to Jacksonville yesterday and Olivia got to spend some time with our dog Rock. She likes to follow him around and she calls him "puppy".
They played outside while Olivia tested out her new beach chair.
Olivia loves kisses from Rock.

Olivia going to get herself breakfast this morning
She likes to snuggle with her teddy bear and carry him all over the house even though he is almost as big as she is.
Olivia playing in her room. She loves walking around wearing her mardi gras beads.
Olivia is also very much into reading books lately.

P.S. Sorry that the last post wasn't exactly clear. Olivia had a dermoid cyst on her eyebrow that she had to have removed.

eye surgery

Right before the surgery
Olivia was happy to be back with her Daddy

She is still kind of sleepy from the anesthesia but overall she is in a very good mood. The doctor said everything went fine and she should recover nicely. Thank you for everyone's thoughts and prayers.

Tonight we went to the playground. First we played on the swings...
Then our friend Lily came to play with us

Olivia had lots of fun playing with her toys in the sand

Olivia and Lily played on the seesaw all by themselves

Olivia had to stop to play in the grass. She likes to pull the heads off the clover flowers.

Then the best part of the playground , the slide.

When Olivia got tired of the playground she decided it was time to go home.


Olivia had lots of fun playing when we had a rainstorm the other day.

4th of July

We grilled some awesome skewers

The happy couple

Olivia and her friend James hanging out waiting for the food.


Olivia trying out her new shoes.
Olivia got lots of presents...
...but she liked her babydoll best.


Olivia thought that the cake was very yummy. She ate it very quickly and proceeded to ask for more. Mommy told Olivia that one piece was enough.


Olivia and her friend Daylyn


Olivia had lots of fun running after the ball.
