The everyday little things that make our life perfect.

Friday, August 3, 2012


It is hard to believe that it is Friday already!  It has been a whirlwind week!  Here is what we have been up to:

This sweet girl is rolling all over the floor now and 
is even beginning to push up on her arms.
I love watching her grow and change each day.
My favorite right now: watching her pick up and play 
with toys that she just ignored a week ago.

Cousin Maddie got to come over for a sleepover this week!
We went to the Aquarium, ate at Rainforest Café, 
stayed up watching movies, had breakfast at Krispy Kreme, 
and played on the McD's playground for most of the morning.

Nobody can get Olivia to laugh as much as her sister can!
Olivia laughs at Hannah.  Hannah then laughs at Olivia.
Back and forth.  They are so funny to watch! 
They entertained themselves for half an hour.

We have been watching the Olympics. 
Hannah is fascinated with the gymnastics.
She is practicing her own tumbling 
complete with her final salute to the judges.
Which also includes a wink and a big grin.

Four months and I finally have a picture of Hannah holding her sister.
She has refused until now.
She didn't really have a choice this time.
I was fixing the carseat and needed to put Olivia down for a second.
Hannah didn't even hesitate as I placed Olivia in her lap.

Not only is the picture special because she is holding her baby sister,
but I feel like it marks a new beginning of sorts.
Hannah is finally settling in to this new lifestyle.
The fits (kicking, angry screaming, hour long rants over minute things)
are much less frequent and angry now. 
We are finally in our groove as a family of four.
Yes, we (all) still have our moments, 
don't really have much of a sleep schedule for Olivia,
and there is never enough time to get it all done.
But we make it work from day to day and 
are having much more fun in doing so!
