One Month

Yesterday Olivia turned 1 month old. I can't believe that is has already been a month since she was born. It doesn't seem like that long.

Olivia -
You weigh a little over 9 pounds now and you are about 21 inches long.
You are just about to outgrow your newborn diapers and clothes.
You are such a good baby and a great sleeper (4-5 hour stretches at night!). You really like the water sounds on your pack-n-play.
Some exciting things we did during your first month are:
The circus in Elgin, several long walks around the neighborhood, and several shopping trips (Hobby Lobby, Mall, Lowes, and Commissary--I still don't want to take you to Wal-Mart!)
Your first outing was to PWOC when you were just 4 days old.
My favorite milestone this month is your first real smile.

Having two girls is so much fun!
These sisters are BEST friends!

Grace always wants to know what her baby sissy is doing and where she is.
If Olivia is in her bed sleeping Grace can't stand to be missing out and has to "go see her."
And they love to cuddle together! Almost every morning we spend time cuddling in bed after we wake up. So sweet!

Grace tells me on a daily basis that her sister
"looks so pretty" or "she is beautiful" or "I really like her."

And Grace has been such a big helper. She loves to get the diaper and help with diaper changes. She helps clean up spit up. She sings "Jesus Loves Me" to Olivia when she cries.
I love watching my girls together!

My Girls

I just love these pictures of my girls.

You can just see how much Grace adores her baby sister.

Grace has been a great helper and seems very protective of Olivia.
I know they are going to grow up to be best friends.
Having two girls is such a great blessing!

A day for Grace

On Friday my Mom came over with her Grandma bag to spend some time playing with Grace. They drew pictures on the driveway with chalk, painted on Grace's easel, and flew a kite!

Could a little girl possibly have more fun?

Olivia Joy

Olivia Joy was born on Friday, February 25th at 4:33pm
She weighed 7 lb. 12 oz. and was 20 in. long

We are home and doing well! Grace is adjusting to being a big sister. She loves her baby but I know she is missing being the only child. She is such a good helper too! She gladly helped change Olivia's dirty diaper today.

Yesterday my Mom came to our house for Olivia's very first photo session. She has been really busy (I am sure taking care of Grace for a couple of days had a part in that!) so I only have a couple so far. I will try to post a link once she has the rest of them up!
