how different two people can be

My girls are like night and day.  Could be their ages.  Olivia is miss Diva, though she's really always been miss Diva.  And Cassia, well she's my sour patch girl.  First she's sour, then she's sweet.

Here's their cuteness from the past weekend:

Oh man and look at this gem I found on my PC!  GAH so cute!  This was September 2014.

time lapse

so, this blog has kind of been neglected.  A weeee bit.  Um, it's January again.  But, 2015.  haha.  At least I have all Olivia's pics on facebook, printed and in a huge box that I say I'll scrapbook, and in files on my computer.  But this blog kind of makes me feel all neglecting. Sooooo, here's recent pics of Olivia.

 here's Olivia packed and ready for her first sleepover; to Mee Maw's house!
 Here is Olivia on the right, cousin Eva in the middle, and sister Cassia on the left!

aaaaand, Olivia's 5th birthday.  My how time flies!

January 19th

I had my dad take a few pictures of Olivia today, just in case she happens to be a finalist for a photo contest. It's weird, if you're a finalist, you have to send 5 more pictures taken between January 9th and 20th. SO it's almost like you have to assume you've gotten this far, because they don't tell you if you're a finalist until the 21st! Weird, huh? So here are a couple from today.

January 13th

Quick post, I let Olivia paint with her dinner tonight to try and sneak in a few extra calories. As you may know, she hasn't been eating much lately, but my mom and Derek may have solved the mystery. She's had a lot of milk lately, so we're trying to decrease the afternoon intake to see if she'll eat dinner. First night was a success! I spread some nutella on her tray and gave her cheerios, and she had fun with it. Wish I'd taken a picture, but I did get a pic of her after (and the bath that followed). Enjoy!

January 8th

Well, today was a busy crazy day. We slept in until 8, so the nap was late. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but we had to leave for gymboree at 11:50. So today I decided to do a bit of the cry it out method for Olivia. I've gotten into the bad habit of nursing her to sleep for naps and bedtime. Well in a few weeks I'm not going to pump at work anymore, which means no more nursing during the day! So, today I nursed her, but she didn't fall asleep so I thought, hey this is a perfect opportunity to get to her fall asleep on her own. So I put her in her crib, put her blanket on and said a quick goodbye. Of course she started wailing, and I walked out. She didn't cry for long though, but didn't go to sleep right away. She laid there for a while singing to herself. So, her first nap was only about 30 minutes. So we went to gymboree, where I was snubbed by a couple girls. I wanted to cry. But oh well, Olivia has fun there so I'll keep going and be a hermit.

Then we came home, Olivia refused to eat lunch (and breakfast, by the way), then played for a bit. Second nap was around 3:15, I nursed her and she stayed awake, so I put her in the crib but this time she didn't cry! Within 10 minutes she was asleep and so was I. She slept until 5:30, but then we had to wake her up again to go to Aunt Diane's get together. We stayed until almost 8 (she refused to eat dinner while there) when she completely fell apart. Came home, took her to bed and nursed her, put her in her crib awake and she went right to sleep! Yey!

So now I'm off to bed. Tomorrow we're going shopping at Target to spend our Christmas money from Grandma Baylay! Olivia needs more socks & pajamas (she might not eat, but she's still getting taller) and I think her room could use a cute wall clock. I never know what time it is while I'm in there nursing her.

Here's Olivia doing more walking (her steering could use a little work!)

January 5th

Okay I think I got the privacy settings fixed! Hopefully now people will be able to look at it. :) Nothing new to report with Olivia, other than her pic. She was actually hugging a stuffed animal, so I had to capture the rare moment!

And I forgot that I took this a couple days ago, her having some crazy fun with a balloon! And with her new baby stroller.
