Olivia Turns 2!

I know, I know, it's been an entire year since I blogged. I really have no excuse except pure laziness. However, it's a new year, and I've decided to put laziness behind me. Since my last post, we have moved to Flagstaff, AZ, Johnathan started physical therapy school, and Olivia has turned 2! This blog is dedicated to Olivia's birthday, so enjoy!

Here is Olivia at Barnes & Noble eating her birthday cupcake. Olivia's grandma Kingsley signed her up for the kids club, so on her birthday she gets a free cupcake. Thank you grandma!

Happy Birthday Olivia!

Our sweet baby girl had her first birthday! Can you believe it? We had a small family party and Olivia had a blast.

She was a little apprehensive at first. . .

But later dove in and loved it!

She LOVED reading all her birthday cards, it so adorable.

This is the Elmo her Uncle Stephen gave her. She kept hugging and kissing him. It was the sweetest thing.

Happy 1st birthday Olivia!

Well, things have been a bit crazy for us these past weeks. Johnathan graduated from BYU, we moved from Utah back to Arizona, and celebrated Christmas in Arizona for the first time in two years. I forgot how much I love being with the fam at Christmas. Olivia had a wonderful first Christmas which you can clearly see from this Christmas morning picture. . .

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

9 Months

Olivia is now 9 months old and has been for a couple weeks now. Can you believe it? She is doing very well and moves and grooves all day long. She now has 4 teeth, 2 bottom center and 2 top center. And, two more are coming in on the top. She babbles and talks all day long and loves to play and socialize. She is also standing now. She can stand for about 10 seconds and she even took a little step the other day. My baby girl is growing too fast! We had her 9 month checkup last week and here are her stats:
  • Weight- 18 lbs 19 oz. (33 Percentile)
  • Length- 28 in. (60 Percentile)

Pumpkin Time!

Last weekend Johnathan, Olivia, and I went to a pumpkin patch. They had a patch where you pick your own pumpkins, a petting zoo, a maze, and corn for kids to play in. I'm learning that holiday festivities are much more exciting with a child.

Olivia liked all the animals except this little guy. He started jumping toward us and Olivia freaked out.

Olivia playing in the corn. She loved doing this!

Here are my gourds that I picked from the patch

Last week poor Olivia experienced being sick for the first time. The culprit. A case of the stomach flu. Nights consisted of throwing up everywhere, and HUGE diarrhea blowouts I soon wish to forget. Days consisted of Olivia taking very long naps, keeping rags on her head to help with her fever, and laying on the couch.

My poor little girl did not feel well

Luckily, she is all better and back to her happy self
