A Very Serious Matter

So we are up in Idaho until tomorrow because Mike is doing a stone side job, and his sister Amy was kind enough to let us crash at her place. It's kind of crazy how things happened because they are in Utah right now for Memorial weekend. Anyways onto the serious business. It is so critical that Olivia gets an afternoon nap at her regular time- between 12 and 1 or else she does not go to sleep. The car ride up really through off her schedule and she transforms into this little monster at night, but its so funny because she will try and make us laugh, by making funny faces and laughing at herself. She doesnt want to take naps lately, well at 5 pm she does... she just doesnt want to miss out on anything so I have to make sure she gets at least a good nap in around noon. I guess its harder to keep her on her schedule when we are out of town too.

Jump Around

Our landlords got this for their pre-school kids, and they were so nice to let us play in it:). Its one of the coolest blow up toys I have seen. We took Olivia out to play in it right before her bedtime(hence the pajamas). It took her a while to get used to the bouncing around, but she warmed up pretty fast.

She loved going down the slide part of it.

Kevin Graduates!

My brother Kevin graduated from PG High today. He has accomplished so much this year! He earned his Associates Degree also. Seriously, he can do anything! Amazing writer, pianoist- he makes up music like transiberian orchestra type of stuff, way good at Parkour and really everything. He will be able to anything. He is so talented!

It's Official!

Had to hurry and post that Olivia is walking! When I was recording her earlier today she was still only taking a few steps and tumbling, and when I was playing with her this afternoon she started walking and stopping and walking all around the room! Only 10 months old, what a big girl:) It's so exciting!

Look Out World ... Cause' Here I Come

So Olivia has been balancing herself really good lately. She walks really good if she is holding onto Mike's or my finger and is starting to take steps on her own, but she gets really excited and hurries so she falls quicker too:)

Vintage Headbands

So Tiffany and me are making these vintage headbands. I had to post them because I think the pictures we got taken of them turned out so cute! There will be more posted on of different styles too. I love making them!

Someone's Watchin' Over Me

So last night Mike, Olivia and me were heading on out to go to dinner and right before we were going to turn onto the freeway a car hit our back end. Luckily we are all okay besides a little whip lash, but I'm just grateful that nothing bad happened to Olivia or Mike. We have to get a new bumper now. I'm really just glad it's just that and nothing else. I don't know what I would have done if it had been worse. My family is everything to me. I'm so glad that someone was watching over us.

Don't Blink!

Lately it seems like I have been going, and going and just been so busy lately- whether it's making clips, cleaning, blogging, working on birthday things or other future plans, that I realize I don't want to miss out on the things that are really important. My little girl is growing like crazy- in a couple months she will be one. Where has this year gone! I was playing with Olivia today and realized how big she is! and of course how cute, and how important it is that I spend all the time I can with her to teach her things. And also to do more things with my wonderful husband. The days go by so fast and I just want to make the most out of them.

Some recent pictures:

First Official Mothers Day:)

I love being a mom and had a wonderful mothers day this year. We spent the day over at my mom's house with everyone. I'm so thankful for my mom and the wonderful example she has been to me. She has taught me so much on how to be a good mom, and I'm so grateful I get the chance to teach my children what she has taught me. I'm also so so so thankful for my sweet Olivia! I love being a mom. Mike spoiled me for Mothers Day too:) He bought me a sewing machine and a gorgeous pink diamond necklace. He is the most thoughtful husband! I am so lucky!
