Olivia at 14 months

My sweet little girl is fourteen months.  She has the best little personality!  She is a mama's girl and thinks she needs to be with me at all times.  She is one of the only toddlers I know that would rather sit on the sofa with her parents instead of play with toys.  She is still not walking...she can walk but chooses not to...I guess we need to get her off the sofa.  She will take steps when she thinks no one is looking and she will push toys around the house but the fastest mode of transportation is crawling.  Olivia loves to talk!  She has a lot of words and gibberish.  My favorite things she says right now is...Gracie, thank you, and telling the dog to GO.  Olivia is starting to identify body parts and follows one step directions such as stomp your feet or retrieving an item.  Olivia loves music and will dance anytime she hears music.  She also tries to sing songs.  She is super sensitive.  If she thinks she is in trouble she pokes out the bottom lip and cries the most pitiful cry.  She still screams when she wants her way.  A nice high pitch embrassing scream.  She loves people and flirts with anybody she can with her huge smile and cute wave.  She absolutely loves Grace and leans into her to share hugs.  I believe one of her favorite things is waking Grace up on school and church mornings.  She also became attached to her daddy while he was home for the last few months.  She squeals anytime he gets home and cries when she sees him leave.  She is a pretty easy going child that takes in every part of life she can.  She is a blessing to our family!

Picture Overload

Having a new camera and the cutest kids in the world...I have posted a blog with pictures galore. Enjoy!

The first three pictures were taken yesterday of my sweet sick baby.  She had a fever of 103.  I took her to the doctor today to find out she has a double ear infection.  Thank goodness for antibiotics.

You know she doesn't feel well when she lays on the sofa and falls asleep on her own.  Poor baby!
Grace with a hose and a Labrador retriever equals a wet fun mess!





YES...I even like to match the kids pj's.  Don't you wish you looked as cute as Grace when you wake up in the morning?
Love the crossing of the legs while sleeping.  The cutest feet ever!
After a long day of soccer in the heat with no naps, the girls needed their mommy in the backseat to cheer them up.  We ended up having the best time singing, dancing and taking pictures!
Grace's pouty face.
Olivia's "cheese" face.







Somebody found out she likes doughnuts!

Grace took her bible, went outside and read it, sitting on the window.  What a sweet girl!

Little Red Barn

Yesterday Grace had a "at school" field trip.  The Little Red Barn came to the school and brought along a petting farm.  The animals were so cute and Grace loved having her mommy at school with her.  Hand Down....our favorite part were the little piggies!
Well...maybe not everybody favorite!

Grace gave me the pleasure of walking around and seeing all the animals but she really just wanted to stay with the pigs.


Have you ever seen something so ugly!?



This is on the way to school in the morning.  So excited about the fun day!

Update on the Maddox's

The Maddox family is going awesome!  Chad started a job on Monday!  God is good and faithful to us.  Chad found a job that is so much better then the last.  Continue to pray through the transition of a new job and mom at home by herself again.  It's hard getting back into a routine when you have had help for the last two and half months!  
The girls are great.  Olivia's personality is cute as a bug and she is enjoying life as a toddler.  Grace continue to be a sassy, sneaky, sweet girl.  I have post some recent pictures below of the the girls.  Please ignore the quality of the picture.  My camera has been acting up...having the bang it five times to turn on and the auto focus is not working...but my sweet family gave me a new camera for my birthday yesterday!  So rest assure new pictures coming soon!!!
Love the girls in matching outfits!

When I went to go get Olivia out of the crib yesterday morning this is what I found.  Too cute!  Grace has learned how to climb in the crib.  Olivia loves it and even gives big hugs away to her!
Grace has been busy at school.  She still loves to go and bring home all sort of cute art projects.  Only a few more weeks to summer break.

Video

Just wanted to update with two videos of Olivia.  Her personality is really coming out.  She is much more out going then Grace and loves being the life of the party.  The first video got cut off but you can see how see really gets into patty-cake.

Listen closely and you can hear her talking...not sure what she is saying but she does have a lot to say!  She is saying new words all the time but now has started the gibberish talk...too cute.

Happy Easter

The Easter Bunny came to visit the girls this morning.  They were so excited to see all that was in the basket.  In fact, Grace had to bring her basket with her in the car to church.



All dressed up and on the way to church.  We had a GREAT worship at The Orchard.

After church we met Maw Maw and Paw Paw at Blue Willow Inn for lunch.  YUMMY!


The Easter bunny hid eggs all around the front yard of the restaurant.  
The girls were do excited to find them!
