Olivia - 6 months old

blog 6 mo

It's happened...and I can't believe it's already here. Olivia is 6 months old today. My BABY is six months old today. I don't remember giving her permission to grow so quickly. Already she has mastered baby food (she ate like a pro the first time and continues to amaze us with how much she can pack in at a sitting!), she's not only scooting around the room but she's almost pushing back to a sitting position from laying on her tummy. I don't remember Micah and Ella being so quick with these skills!! Her Grandma Peggy tells me it's actually a survival mechanism ... her instincts tell her she MUST move quickly to survive in this house. How true, especially with Ella around!

These six months have been an incredible blessing...we can't imagine life without Olivia - all 4 of us didn't know what was missing, but now that she's here, we know it was HER we were missing. She's Ella's "Olivia Abigail" who will someday be her partner in crime...she's Micah's comic relief (he just laughs and laughs at everything she does)...she's daddy's snuggle bug and she's my "olive juice". THANK YOU Lord for three amazing and unique children...each one is incredible and truly a gift from you.

Joanna (one of my sisters, visiting from Chicago) took this picture of me and Olivia the other night at the pumpkin patch. I think I may have found myself a future partner in photography (Since Heather tells me she can't move to Florida and I can't move to Canada)! :)

This is such a sweet photo of you and Olivia! You're right, they grow sooo fast! My Ethan is 9 months old and I don't remember giving him permission to grow this fast either! But anyway, this is a precious picture of mama and baby and you have a beautiful family!
