I am so glad it's finally getting warm around here. I've heard a few comments about how Spring sort of left us high and dry and we went straight to summer, but for now, you won't hear me complain. I mean, just look at my cute girl in her shirt dress! We had such a lovely weekend full of fun, playing, family and friends. A baby shower for my dear friend Jo and her 2nd baby girl, a birthday party for my brother, time with Grandma and lots of outside time. I am beyond thankful for such gifts :)
Making face-washing fun for everyone!
"come here" chickies! (Olivia always pats her legs to say "come here" to Clarence or any other animal. I'm telling you, kids are sponges!)
|carrying her purses and so excited about it|
|she loves to put her blankie on this way-a sort of backwards cape :)|
|flowers! Daddy did an amazing job planting this weekend. Everything looks beautiful and we're going to have lettuce, tomatoes, peas and basil. Yummmmmmmmmm!|
|we got to spend time with Grandma and Olivia had such fun reading with her!|

|...your face will surely show it...|
|if you're happy and you know it say hooray!|
|loving the water in the garden center at lowes|
|yay for pictures with a smiling baby girl!|
|a happier mama there never was|
I could write a thousand words about the love of a mother. About how I couldn't understand it's depth until sweet Olivia swept up my heart. About how I could never express my gratitude fully enough to my mom, her mom, my dad's mom. About how there is no way, in a million weekly or monthly blog posts I could explain how my heart beats in time to the rhythm of my daughter's every breath. For now, I won't try with words. They will float around in my heart for a while, words soaking up this meaning of life. One day I will try to put them down, so my sweet Olivia can get a glimpse. Until then, just look at those smiles. A picture is worth a thousands words.

We've been having some fun lately! Olivia's 3rd cousin Kyler (and my 2nd cousin Colin and his wife Kerrie) came down last weekend to hang out. Kyler is 2 weeks younger than Olivia and it was a BLAST to see them together :)
|morning snacks in the back yard|
|Clarence got to come out and play for once, lucky boy|
|Grandma went to the zoo with us!|
|Change the channel!|
|Olivia loves bananas|
|just hanging out. not much cuter than a baby in a white onesie :)|
|putting on her own jacket. she also likes to try to put on her own shoes, hat and pants!|
|Happy Cinco de Mayo!|
|Daddy building a new gate last weekend|
|Kyler and Olivia playing|
|My mom didn't even know she had a bird on her shoulder right away! Kyler is feeding him :)|
|This was actually on the way TO the zoo. The same thing happened on the way home :)|
