Olivia - Three Years Old
Three is such a fun, crazy age. The things she says literally crack me up, she's the funniest little thing! It also has it's crazy moments where one second she's fine and the next it's a the-world-is-ending-because-my-milk-isn't-the-right-temperature kind of day. She has such a great personality and she's so sweet. Her favorite things are bunnies, chapstick, and playing with play dough. She loves her baby dolls and packs their diaper bag just like mommy whenever we're going somewhere. She loves books and the library and loves to sing! Her favorite foods are bacon, pepperoni, pasta, all kinds of fruit and anything with ranch. We're working on the sodium intake ;). Her favorite show is Daniel Tiger, which I love too - such great messages for them. Not a great sleeper, but improving most days. She loves to help me clean - dusting, mopping the floors, cleaning the tub, emptying the dishwasher. I've started giving her a quarter for an allowance for chores and she loves it. You go right ahead and save that money for the ice cream man, girlfriend. She's a girlie girl through and through. Loves lip gloss, nail polish, and sugar scrubs. Her favorite color is purple and she loves to pick out her own outfits.

When the newborn stage is ending, it's so bittersweet. Teeny, tiny baby clothes and that newborn smell, can't get any sweeter, but then you start seeing smiles and hearing those first giggles and its so fun! She rolls over onto her belly...bye bye swaddle...mommy is mourning sleep...which I wasn't prepared for because she had been sleeping SO good. For weeks now, she'd sleep from 7:30/8pm until 7:30/8am, uninterrupted. The past two nights has been the worst since unswaddling her so hoping to figure out a solution soon so we can all rest better. She's full of gummy smiles - my favorite! She loves to go on her jungle activity mat and prefers naps on mommy. She loves her mamaroo and talks to the colored balls hanging above. Her bunny lovey soothes her and she loves to cover her face with it when she's tired. I watch her carefully to make sure she can breath correctly and have gotten some looks, but she loves it so whatever works! She loves to watch Olivia and is definitely becoming more interested in what she's doing. Such a delicate little flower - has full stranger danger and prefers only Mommy - we're working on that. Really enjoys being outside and loves to nap on a blanket while Olivia runs through the sprinkler. Sweet little peanut!
