Olivia is now 8 months old!

Baby Olivia turned 8 months old while we were at Deep Creek Youth Retreat a few weeks ago. She is just such a sweet, peaceful child (most of the time). Right now she is teething, but I think her unpleasant mood might just be the same temperament as most children on any given day. She is still all smiley and happy about 90% of the time she is awake.

Olivia this last month:
learned to roll over consistently
sit up unassisted
grabs at everything
eats like a champ
said her first word which was MaMa- makes this momma very happy
is wearing 6 to 9 month clothes, but totally could wear bigger!
loves her family
smiles most of the time and loves to snuggle
went on her 2nd youth retreat
had her first time alone with her parents b/c Ruthie went to stay with nana and papa in TN for a few days
Olivia was also Baptized this month and it was a beautiful time. She was baptized in water from the Jordan River that pastor Rob brought back from his summer trip. So special really!

Olivia we love you so much and are so thankful and blessed that God gave you to us!
