Our Little Angel

Ok, well maybe not so little! In fact we think she resembles a little buddha or a prize fighter on her way to the big fight!

At almost three months old, Olivia is weighing in at over 15 lbs! Yes, you heard correctly...15 lbs! So needless to say we are not having any troubles in the eating department! Livie likes her food as you can see.

Things are going very well. This Sunday Olivia will turn three months old! I cannot believe how quickly the time as passed. It has been a roller coaster ride, but a fun one so far! We have enjoyed watching our teenie-tiny baby grow into a little buddha. And nothing could have made me happier than when she smiled at us for the first time. I am amazed by how much she grows and advances each day. Who knows what she will accomplish in her third month!

She is sleeping pretty well through the night...even though she still prefers sleeping in her bouncy seat. We are ok with that for now, as we think that is most comfortable for her and her acid reflux problem. She usually gives me one long stretch of 6-7 hours straight. We then wake up to eat and she goes back down for another 3 hours or so. I could not ask for more than that at this point in time. Although Todd and I long for the day when I can go to bed and sleep straight through, without any interruptions! She is talking more and more each day. The sounds she makes are too cute and sometimes we sit and have conversations about absolutely nothing at all! She is also very close to rolling over from her tummy to her back.
She is just our little angel! Well...most of the time anyway. Don't let the adorable pictures deceive you. Livie can still have her moments. Lately she has been protesting the bottle. For what reason we do not know, but it is a struggle getting her to take one...just ask Todd. And she also seems to be going through an anti-daddy phase. Not sure why, but she is not a huge fan of Todd lately. She seems to cry every time he holds her or tries to play with her. Needless to say, this has been hard on him. He asks, "Why does she hate me?". And I tell him that she is not capable of hating you this early (but just wait until she is a teenager!), and not to worry as she is just going through a weird phase. Hopefully she will go back to being daddy's little girl again soon!
For Christmas my mother gave Livie the little angel jacket and shoes that you see in the pictures. With wings on the back of the jacket and on the heels of the shoes, the outfit it just too cute...especially when she wears it with nothing but her diaper!
Happy three month Birthday Olivia!

Don't worry, Todd!
This is just Livie's way of wrapping you around her little pinky. She loves you to pieces, and by giving you a hard time she can ensure that you will do everything she wants for the the next 20 years or so!

She's beautiful!
