Olivia Grace's New Ride
Olivia Grace got a birthday present early last week. She loves her new car. She can get on and off all by herself. She likes to put toys in the trunk. But most of all she likes to push it around the house. She has learned how to turn the wheel when she crashes into something, so that she can keep on going. You can hear her squealing all throughout the house when she is pushing her car.

Daddy's Girl
Olivia Grace was in her first wedding this summer (her Aunt Kristin's). She looked so cute in her flowergirl dress. She and her cousin Chandlin rode in a beautiful wagon. She did very good and did not even pull her bow out of her hair until after she made her grand entrance. She had her picture taken a lot that day and this is one of my favorites.

Pictures Have Arrived!!!!
Olivia Grace is taking steps! We have a hard time getting her to "perform," so we had to take a picture without her seeing the camera. She is so proud of herself. She has the biggest smile on her face and she doesn't mind clapping for herself either. Mom and Dad do a lot of clapping and shouting also!!

What Oliviva Grace has accomplished this week!!!

On Tuesday Olivia Grace noticed an airplane for the first time. She watched it until it disappeared.

On Wednesday I broke down and gave Olivia Grace an early birthday present. I gave her a little car that she can sit on and ride. It plays "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Do You Know The Muffin Man." She loves to push it around the house. She has learned how to hold onto the handle so that she can turn it when she bumps into something. She has also taught herself how to swing her leg around the seat to get on and off. She is so cute when she does that!!

On Friday, she made a BIG breakthrough on eating. She has never cared for food that had texture. She is happy just eating babyfood and graham crackers. However, we went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner and she ate rice, chicken, and refried beans. Brent and I were shocked!!!!!

Today, Saturday, Olivia Grace has enjoyed playing in the dirt. Brent is putting in a fountain. So our yard is a complete mess. She loves dirt and bark.

Walking Update: Olivia Grace is taking more and more steps daily. She still prefers crawling - it is much
I promise pictures are on the way. I have figured it out!!!

This has been a big day for Olivia Grace. She is now clapping for herself after she walks. She is BIG stuff now! She has also increased her vocabulary today as well. She added "dog" and "ball." It is amazing how fast she can change in one day. Her Mommy and Daddy are having a hard time admitting that their baby girl is growing up (too fast)!! She is so much fun.

September 4, 2006

Olivia Grace has taken her first steps! She took 3 steps this morning and 2 this afternoon. I made a big deal about it (of course)!! Olivia Grace knew she had done something big!! You should have seen her smile. I am so excited that I was able to see her take these steps. We can't wait for Daddy to get home so he can see what she can do.
