This past weekend, we went to visit Grandpa in Lynden. Boy, was he excited to show off his first Grand-daughter! Lynden was having a festival called "Holland Days" and there was quite the turnout for the parade. Olivia was a little overwhelmed.
She did pretty well on the car ride - much to my surprise. Olivia has hated her carseat from day one, so I was prepared for a whole lot of crying... but she took a nap both ways and didn't fuss too much. Whew!
This picture is from my dad's backyard. It's like a nature preserve! Theres ducks and geese and little ducklings and goslings! Plus, blackbirds and frogs and crickets and other racket that keeps me up at night. :-) It's like trying to sleep next to the zoo.
Olivia had her 4-month checkup last week, too. She's 15lbs, 9 oz... that's 95th percentile! She doesn't miss many meals...as you can tell.
She laughs out loud when I put her in front of the mirror. She cracks herself up! And she's reaching for EVERYTHING now, including the kitty. She got a big handful of fur the other day, and poor kitty was like "Hello? Did anyone just see that?"
I'm looking forward to celebrating my first mothers day this next weekend. I don't know if Olivia knows that she's supposed to get me a present. Hmmm... does someone want to clue my husband in on that one? Tell him I'd like breakfast in bed, please. :-)
