2 months and I'm in LOVE

Well I finally have a moment to blog. It's been almost 2 months since I was last able to read all of your blogs. Olivia has kept us very busy. She has grown so much. First girly item I bought on Etsy was the hat below from Blue Raindrops. The flower attaches with a button. I just ordered her second hat in white for the spring. I love shopping for her. The first few weeks was tough to go out and shop so I bought her a few things on Etsy. Now I'm hooked. I can't wait for the fall / winter so that I can buy more of these beautiful hats. She also got some leg warmers and a few headbands with flowers and bows.

We have also been lucky to have such wonderful friends and family that have showered her with such wonderful gifts. In the first week she had a total of 46 onesies! Our friends bought her a beautiful jean dress and I dressed her up one day and took a bunch of pictures. Thank goodness for digital cameras.

I love this little jumper. Kenrick bought it for her when he went shopping on day. He likes shopping for her just as much as I do. I also love her little facial expression. I know every parent says it, but she is just so darn cute. I can't get enough of her. I hold her and hug her, squeeze her and kiss her. My heart sings when she smiles at me and my heart flutters when she coos at me. I am totally in love with this little girl. I guess you can understand why I haven't been blogging lately. I can't pull myself away from her.

We have gotten her used to a bed time routine now that includes a bath, feeding and then she sleeps for 3-4 hours. This has been going on for just over a week now. I have finally found time in my day to blog and do something for me. However I won't lie, there have been some nights when I check on her around 9:30 and decide to join her and hit the hay.

You can never understand how a baby becomes your world until it happens to you , how you put yourself aside for the well being of your baby , it just happens , but as they get older trust me you get your time back , that is just the stage you are at , enjoy it , it is devine , I wish I could relive that stage of life, busy exhausting but fantastic.
