Olivia Has Been Tagged

1. Olivia absolutely loves the tub as long as one of us is in with her! We know this because the screams bloody murder whenever we get her out. She just loves to lounge, kick her legs, sing, and on occasion poo while bathing.

2. Olivia won't take naps if Dad is home. She completely refuses to nap whenever Greg is in the house. She will occasionally lay down and attempt to nap as long as he is laying next to her, but it still usually doesn't happen.

3. Olivia loves watching TV, I think it has something to do with the bright flashing screen and different sounds. If you get in her way and she can't see the TV, she gets mad and turns her head away from you until you move.

4. 2 1/2 months old and Olivia is already sleeping through the night. She sleeps around 8-9 hours each night! It is heaven!

5. Olivia is an acrobat! The week after we brought her home from the hospital, she was already rolling from her stomach to her back. She hates tummy time!

6. Poo is Olivia's middle name! I already mentioned that she poo's in the tub, but she always decides to relieve herself as soon as we take her diaper off and clean her bum. It is quite annoying!

7. Olivia loves the mall! A few times a week, when Greg gets home from school or work, he will take her to the mall while I take a nap. Olivia is so relaxed and usually gets her nap in while they take laps.

8. Olivia will suck on anything that she can get close to her mouth. She as previously sucked on Greg's nose, our chins, and has recently found her arm and hands. She goes to town and it is loud! We can hear her in the middle of the night over the baby monitor.

9. Olivia loves music! One day when she was so upset and wouldn't calm down we turned on Josh Groban and she immediately stopped crying and calmed down.

10. She loves her mom and misses her while she is away. One day I went shopping up at the Gateway for a few hours. Greg's mom tended Olivia and Greg went and picked her up after he got off work. Shortly after they came home she got really upset. When he called me to see when I was coming home he put the phone to Olivia's ear. She immediately stopped crying and we ok as soon as she heard her mommy's voice.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! We had a wonderful Easter. On Saturday, we all went to South Town Mall and got a picture taken with the Easter Bunny!
On Sunday, we had a get together at my mom's house with the family. We had our annual Easter Egg hunt. Greg found $10 in his egg, and I found $2 in mine. I know what you're thinking, WE'RE RICH! Greg then gambled his money away in a game of Deal Or No Deal for a chance at $100! He walked away with $3! He had fun playing though, and it was fun to watch.

Here's Greg, the big winner, opening his egg!

We then played a little golf game to see who could get closest to a target. We ended up leaving with $0, but it's ok cause that's what we came with. It was fun to be with the family and the weather was gorgeous!
Check out that form!

On a side note, Ellie got a bunny for Easter. The poor thing doesn't stand a chance. She drags it around by it's leash and catches it by it's ears. She doesn't think that she's being mean to it though, so it's kinda funny. She loves the little thing!

Here's Payton, Zoe, and Ellie with her bunny!

How funny is this picture of Olivia chillin' with the bunny!?

St. George

Greg and Olivia heading to the Pool!Sexy Baby in her little bikini!
Me and Olivia in the pool! She doesn't look too excited to be swimming!
Dad and Olivia cleaning the house before we went home! She loves this thing, but she looks so uncomfortable!

Last Wednesday Greg, Olivia, and I headed down to St. George. We were joined on Thursday by Greg's 2 brothers and his cousin, Derek. On Friday, Greg's parent's arrived. We had so much fun. We shopped (Hello TJ Maxx!), ate (We love the Mongolian BBQ), played games (Apples to Apples), and relaxed! As we played Apples to Apples, sweet Greg thought the word was foamy, when in fact it was phony so he put down "Root Beer Floats" and was sure he had it won, until he learned the real word. We all had a good laugh about that.
We attempted to take Olivia swimming, but as you will be able to see from the picture, she was less than thrilled. It was pretty funny.
On our drive home, we were at a complete stop in Cedar City because of the snow and a bad wreck, but Olivia slept until we made it to Spanish Fork. She did awesome.
Yesterday, when Greg got home from work Olivia wouldn't look at him or play with him. When he would lay by her she would look the other way. We decided it was because she was mad at him for leaving her (after all, he was her buddy from Thursday to Sunday without ever leaving her side). Not to worry, later in the night she snuggled Greg in bed and would open her eyes just long enough to look at him to make sure he was still there and then smile. Her personality has gotten so dang funny!

Nothing New

Since I have nothing new to post about I thought that I'd share something that I'm excited about. I just invested in proactiv! I know you'll all be thrilled as well to know that you won't have to look at my sad skin anymore! I'll keep you updated on my progress (not that you really care)!
