It's All About Olivia Today . . . . .

What can I say, but my little one is quickly growing up.  Every day she says or does something that surprises me or just makes me giggle a little.  Here are a few highlights from this week.  Keep in mind it's only Wednesday.

First day at dance class.  She's been waiting for this day for weeks.  Her only disappointment was that it was only one hour and only on Mondays. 

Here we were on the way to dance class. She couldn't wait to get those shoes on!
 We got there early so here she is spying on the older girls class.  She was absolutely mesmerized.
 And here she is in her class.  She is on the right and her best friend Faith is on the left.

 And here she is going so fast that my camera couldn't keep up with her.

And here is some video.  Sorry it's sideways, but I couldn't figure out who to rotate it.

Tuesday: We went swimming, just her and I.  She is doing remarkable.  First let me show you some video taken from this past weekend so you can truly see what a fish she is. 

Here is Livi jumping off the diving board and swimming to the edge

So with that in mind, fast forward to this week.  So she's swimming along and all of a sudden she gets water up the nose.  So she gets kind of upset and I give her the good old pep talk.  I told her when you get tired and you don't think you can make it, just push harder, kick harder etc.  So I guess I got a little intense because then she said, "Yeah mommy and you have to make a really mean face like this!" And this is the face she made:

And of course you didn't think I could post without mentioning Juliana, did you?  Here she is, another little mermaid.  And no, she is not sleeping, my little vampire baby doesn't like sun in her face.  Who does?

Which brings us now to today, Wednesday.  Today was her dancing day.  She had been be-bopping around the house today, but at night, right before bedtime, the dancing queen was unleashed.  Here is a little montage of Olivia's"interpretive" dancing.  I'm really not quite sure where she gets these moves from but WOW!


  1. Wow! You guys are super busy. She looks like she's having fun!

  2. Fun times for sure. Those sweet girls are growing up fast. Looks like Livi is going to be a great dancer.
