Nothing Cuter...

...than a baby's bare butt! How precious is this picture? We have had some pretty warm days these past few weeks, with the temps reaching into the mid 90's! Olivia is a sweaty baby and she prefers to be in the buff when it gets that warm. So I thought I would let her play in her Birthday Suit for a little while. That is when I captured this moment...sitting up so tall!

With the warm weather we have been spending a great deal of time outdoors. That is by far Olivia's favorite place to be. Recently Olivia's daddy attached a swing to the big tree in our backyard. Needless to say she loves to be pushed while the wind hits her in the face. It causes her to burst into big smiles and giggles every time! This is also a great activity for the times when Olivia is little fussy and hard to entertain!

With the rising temps we have also been able to start swimming. She hasn't been in the big pool yet, but she has been in her baby pool many times. She prefers to do this activity naked as well. We put her in her pool with some bath toys and the splashing begins. It is such a great way for her to cool off when it gets so hot. It is also a lot of fun for her and a great way for her to get used to being in the water. Click on the link below to see how much Livie loves her pool..

This past week Todd's father flew in from Hawaii. He is going to be here for a little over a month and he is looking forward to spending time with his only Granddaughter. Olivia was only a few weeks old when he was here last. Needless to say he was quite shocked by how much she has changed in just a little more than six months. We are leaving later this week for California. Olivia is going to visit her Auntie Sue Sue and Todd, my Mom and myself are all going as well. This will be Olivia's first plane ride...please keep your fingers crossed for me that it goes well! But once we return from our long overdue vacation Olivia will get to spend lots of time with her G.P. (That is the grandchildren's nickname for Grandpa).

So check back soon for some fun pictures from our trip! California here we come! I think she is excited...what do you think???

Wow, she is such a doll. It's so amazing seeing her grow up. I can't wait until her and Cami are old enough to really be friends. They can complain about their chunky legs together. :)

I must say I am a little jealous of Livie sitting naked in the pool. Don't you just wish you could sometimes!! Ha Ha! She sure is a cutie in that little pink dress. Good choice on grandma's part!
