growing girl!

olivia finally had her 9 month appointment. she weighs 23.1 lbs, is 29 1/2 inches long and i don't remember her head circumference but don't worry- it's above the 97th percentile. whatever that means. big brains, right?! a few shots of the biggest girl......

we went to the driving range with adam the other night and she was not in to it. 

she loves to stand up and lean against the wall. so fancy!

you know you're pooped when you can't quite lay down to go to sleep...poor thing was practicing yoga in her sleep last night.

yes, i bribe my baby with food. don't judge me. she finally started crawling and not scooting the other day. i had to roll up her dress though, otherwise she was slipping and sliding all over the wood floor. she thinks she is big stuff now.

saturday fun

saturday we took olivia to support her cousin coleman at his first soccer game with the hippo team. as soon as we heard that team name, we knew we couldn't miss it! here are some shots...

suiting up!

thinking he looks like a dork with his shirt tucked in! :)

lining up pre-game

coleman was such an advanced player he had time to do lots of things, all during the game!

he was goalie...

he checked out the plant life at the fields....

he visited his audience...

he flirted...

and he lead his fellow hippos in a rousing cheer!

i forgot our stroller so mckinley let olivia squeeze in with her. apparently they weren't enjoying it. time for naps!

here are some random shots from our first florida easter... enjoy!

checking things out...

going in for the kill....

happy girl!
not sure what to think of the bunny bread grandma brought her...


cousin coleman on egg duty during the egg toss after dinner

a late night shot in her baby moo moo nightgown. 

so, like i said, kind of random shots. i didn't get any pictures of dinner or of us as a family pre-church. we were running late and the self timer on top of the car didn't work out. we hosted dinner here which began as a nightmare when the oven practically caught on fire from burning butter, but ended great with everyone stuffed and having a good time. happy easter 2009!

reupholstery 101

(apparently whoever covered this thought yellow pleather would never go out of style because there were about 15 million staples.)


i'm not quite finished yet (that's why it's kind of poofy in a few spots), but i kind of like it without the back part. what do you think? am i just being lazy?
