I love when I catch her being a good little mommy! She is such a little person now, no more baby left.  Kind of sad how fast they grow up...

Of course, she had to try it herself!

Almost Spring...

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring and we got more snow last night.... typical Minnesota winter!

I am seriously contemplating moving somewhere warmer.

But if we did that, we wouldn't get to see how darn cute Olivia is in snow pants! Really though, I cannot wait for the weather to warm up and all the outside playing to be had.

Toy Organization....

Olivia's toys are in full force around our house...and this is just our upstairs!

We decided we needed to get a better system for storing toys.  Up until now we had a medium sized toy box and lined the bigger toys along the wall.   We looked at a few stores to see if we could find what we were thinking would work and just couldn't find anything that looked decent. 

This is where a very handy father-in-law comes in handy!

He built us the exact cabinet we wanted and it is the perfect size! All of Olivia's smaller toys fit and now we don't have toys lining our walls.  I have also noticed now that her toys are more easily accessible, she is playing with them more. 

It feels so great to have a little more organization!

Baby in a Box...

Why is always more fun to play in the box then with what came with it? 

Someday she will learn that the stuff inside the box is much more awesome!

Oh the innocence of children....

My favorite little person...

Oh the many faces of Olivia....

This girl is so darn funny - she thinks so too! She loves laughing and putting her hands over her mouth, dances no matter what kind of music she hears, hops everywhere she goes, hides her crayons in her shirt (thanks Grandma!), is particular about where I put her fruit on her plate, kisses her babies without prompting...

Man I love watching her grow into a little person.  It just keeps getting better and better!

Playdate Fun!

I love getting together with our friends who have babies... especially when the kids are basically the same age!

This little guy is 10 days older then Olivia and they have a ball playing together.  It was really fun watching them play the piano together - so cute!

Playing Football with Dad!

This made him so darn happy! He loves his sports and it looks like Olivia will be joining him!

Of course it helps that the only TV he will let her watch is football and baseball games!
