3 Weeks


Just thought I'd share some cute pictures from the past week. Olivia loves her bath time! Right now it's 1:30am and this little girl just won't sleep. She's not crying or fussing, just wide awake. So I figured since I can't sleep unless she is I would lay her down at least, and update my blog! Things are getting so much better... not that they were ever bad, but we are just all getting more adjusted to this new life. I'm so glad to be able to stay home with her. I could not imagine if I had to go back to work in 2 weeks or something, and had that looming over me this whole time. It's so nice to realize this is it! Every day for the rest of my life I get to be a mommy! It's funny because almost every other stage has been temporary. A student. A substitute teacher. I guess wife is also a pretty permenant title :) But ya know, like in school it was just waiting to get done... and with subbing I knew it was just temporary until I had the baby. Anyway...
Olivia started cooing today. It is by far the cutest of all things in the world. I was just talking to her saying, "Oh we've had a busy day today! Went to church, and grandma and grandpa's..." and she went "aaaaaah!" with this happy expression. I know they say it's just gas at this point, but I swear my baby girl smiles at me! She can also hold her head up pretty good, and no one will believe this, but I was changing her the other day and she rolled from her back completely to her stomach!! I quickly went online to see if this was even remotely or if I was going crazy... and apparently it can happen. Only once, so it was probably a fluke thing, but needless to say I definitely won't leave her on the changing table and turn my back for even a second! She loves to wiggle and squirm, and has earned the nickname "squirmy wormy". I am amazed at how strong she is... and I'm no longer surprised at the bruised ribs she gave me ;) Today we also made it through all three hours of church!! And the last two nights she slept great. Hopefully once she falls asleep tonight she will give me 5 hours of rest, but we'll see.
ONE WEEK FROM WEDNESDAY WE LEAVE FOR NJ!

She is so cute and KUDOS to you for going to church for all 3 hours. It is so nice to be around ADULTS again. I so happy you aren't a paranoid parent - there's nothing wrong with a couple of germs here and there.
