Sacked out

In our state, a rear facing car seat is mandatory until the child is one year old and over 20 pounds.  Well, Missy here more than meets the second criteria while her first birthday is a week away.  She has a new car seat; one that faces front and is pink and grey in color.  Papa says it reminds him of Dumbo the elephant.  Olivia finds it very, very comfy.

Where's Waldo?

Oh, my poor eyesight!  Have you ever gone through one of these books looking for the silly hiker, Waldo?  Sammy loves this book but forgets where she has found him on each page before.  Therefore, Mimi is called in to help.  (Luckily, my memory is better than hers for now and I can point him out for her).

It's time

Sorry for the delay this morning, folks.  Google/Blogger is at it again at my house.  Anyhoo...Sammy thinks it's time for Olivia to start taking care of herself.  First, time to comb all that hair!

A tisket, a tasket

Just exactly what is a tisket or a tasket for that matter?  Anyway, this is Sammy's basket that she puts all her little princess toys into.  Or any toy that she doesn't want her cousin to get into.  Then she puts it on a counter so he can't reach it.  Ballet flats, tiaras, jewelry...all of her girly items that Camden is not supposed to play with.

No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to keep the food entirely in her mouth and it gets all over.  But she's a happy baby!

You will be too tall.

Sammy wanted to try on her Auntie's shoes.  IF she could get them on by herself and IF she didn't fall down once she got them on....she'd be as tall as me.

Guess what happened?  Both of her bottom front teeth have popped through!  Now she can really rip into that steak she has her eye on.

Rosy Cheeks

Yep that's the corn dog and yep it was finished. 
Her hair seems to be getting blonder and blonder, but not quite as white as Samantha's was.

Can't leave home without it

Sammy let's go
Samantha: I wanna dance for a little bit
Mommy: you need to get dressed
Samantha: okkaaayyy 
and this is the final product!

Trying not to get my hopes up

I am truly trying to NOT get my hopes up about having another little granddaughter with beautiful curls.  But see this curly cue?  I play with it all the time.  It probably curls for that reason but I have hopes that this is just the beginning of all of her glorious curls...all over her head!

This face

Does this look like the face of a little girl who's supposed to be taking a nap?  I didn't think so either.

Blogger problems

Today has been the first day that I've been able to access this blog.  Blogger took it all down for a one-hour maintenance on Wednesday and, well, no one has been able to see anything since.  Although I have several photos scheduled to publish, I keep getting an error on them.  I'll keep trying to resolve this but be prepared for more delays as Google rolls out its new Cloud Picker program.  Can you feel my excitement over this?  Yawn.

A great view

Here you can see into her mouth.  Not. One. Tooth. In. Her. Head.  Not. One.

The curls

You can see the little corkscrew curls Sammy gets after swim class.  No, she doesn't swim with the crown on although I'm sure she would if Mommy would let her.

The littlest ballerina

A new favorite photo of the youngest tiny dancer.  A sitting dancer.

Foo Man Choo

I have watched this video so many times, and it still cracks me up...enjoy!

Always makes me happy

This is Olivia's enourmous blanket that she just loves, as soon as I bring it out for her she is one happy camper...

The new play set

Sammy has a climbing wall now 

and a set of monkey bars.  She looked at me, like, "what are you talking about?  I don't see any monkeys!"

Showing her the ropes...

Thank you so much Nana and Wawa for showing Sammy all about jump roping!  Next we'll move onto Chinese Jumprope.  Remember that one with the elastic bands?

Not last night but the night before
24 robbers came knocking at my door.....

Up in the nose bleed section

This is a new position for Olivia.  Standing.  Standing up...  Certainly not by herself, oh no.  Auntie had to hold her hands locking Olivia's knees in place to keep her standing.  Someday, someway, Olivia will become mobile.

You know who...

Sammy loves seeing her Auntie/Godmother Christy.

(because she loves her and she always recieves a present when she sees her!)

Who are you?

Olivia didn't quite know what to do with this new bear of hers.

So she sat and watched and waited patiently to see if it would eat her.  It didn't.
