The power went out one evening into the night and this caused sleep issues for Olivia. It was much too dark, quiet and warm to sleep! Perfect sleep environment for me, but Olivia had other thoughts! As I sat and rocked her, she continuously signed fan. She knows that when we are warm, we turn on the ceiling fan. Poor kid just could not understand why I was ignoring her request. Communication is going beautifully. Olivia can sign a numb of words, including fan, mommy, happy, sad and all done. Her affirmative sign is to clap.
We spent Fathers Day with many of the men in Olivia's life: Grandpa, Uncles, and of course Daddy. The men love the lake, so that was where we were. And a wise choice at that!
Olivia got her first boat ride! And promptly fell asleep!
Olivia went for her first swim and loved it. I loved playing in the water with her. She floats well so was as light as a feather in the water.
And Olivia got a chance to play with her cousins. As you can tell we were having a great time!
A dear sweet neighbor made this doll for Olivia. It is predict and gorgeous! She even embroidered Olivia's name on the apron (by hand!). A special gift from a very special friend!
