3 Months

3 months already!!!! We absolutely love everything about our sweet Olivia. She is a content easy baby. I pulled out her 3-6 month close all of which are still pretty big. She has acquired a few nicknames: Livia, Livs, Livy, and Livers(my least favorite, but sometimes it just comes out). I'll be interested to see which of these sticks. Grace and Abigail are really good at helping me take care of her and are actually really helpful. She still eats every 2 hours during the day and wakes once at night to eat. Life with 3 girls is feeling comfortable and just the way it should be...We are all in love with our littlest girl!!!

Menlove Sleepover

We had such a fun time with the Menlove kids! I was a little worried that 3 more kids would be 3 times the work (and it was a times) but for the majority of the time they entertained themselves, playing games like "spy" and just running around the house together. Nothing makes a Mom/Auntie more happy then watching all the kids playing so well!

Fishing at the Pond

The evening consisted of fishing, pizza, fishing, bubbles, fishing, "hide and go seek", fishing, dessert, fishing, a walk, and more fishing.
Maybe next time we'll actually catch a fish...

"School Day, School Day"

"Dear Old Golden Rule Day"

Today was Gracie's first day of preschool at "Apple Tree". She'll be going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, from 9:30-12:30. Both mother and daughter have been anticipating this day to come. The one person to cry when we dropped Grace off was Abby. Poor girl wanted so badly to go to preschool and asked when we were picking up Gracie all morning. One more year Abigail...although I don't think I'll ever be ready for her to go.

Olivia's Blessing

Last Sunday, July 31st Olivia was blessed at church. Ben gave a beautiful blessing and we so enjoyed having family here. Everyone came back to our house afterwards for a little luncheon. It was fun having Nana and Pop come into town for a couple of days. The boys got a lot of work done cleaning out the garage, doing yard work, and setting up the swing set. Although it was raining we even went up to Big Bear and did the Alpine Slides.
