Reid put the finishing touches on the swing set last weekend and Olivia has been enjoying her swing more than ever. We also hung a "big kid" swing next to her baby one so we can swing along with her. She thinks its lots of fun!
She also likes to go pretty high. I'm sure there is some sort of rule about not pushing a 13.5 pound baby as high as I have been. But, she doesn't seem phased. :)

Happy First Birthday!

Olivia turned ONE on Saturday! I seriously can't believe a year has passed since our baby was born. It is unreal!

We had a wonderful day celebrating Olivia. We started with brunch at one of our favorite Dallas spots, Oddfellows. I love their chicken and waffles and knew that Olivia would, too. ;) She didn't waste any time digging in.

After brunch we made a quick stop at a local children's boutique to buy O her first pair of sandals. They are a size 0 (smallest they make) and are the tiniest, sweetest, light pink sandals I've ever seen. She immediately brought her foot to her mouth and used them as a teether. Whatever makes her happy! :)

On our way home we stopped to give her sisters their birthday flowers. Happy first birthday Madelyn and Mary Grace!

We spent some time playing with her new birthday present before naptime! She absolutely loves it and even sat on her own for the first time while she was playing. Such a big milestone reached on her first birthday!

After an afternoon nap we met some close friends from home group and college for pink cupcakes at a park near our house. I didn't get pictures, but Olivia enjoyed her first cupcake (topped with whipped cream).

Reid, Olivia and I headed to Blue Goose for an early dinner. This girl loves tortillas and people watching!

Our friends Katie and Todd stopped by to say hello. They brought their dog, Ellie, and Olivia couldn't have been happier about it. This girl loves dogs!

Dinner was followed by a bath and bedtime. It was the perfect day and she was in such a good mood for all of it. It's a day Reid and I will never forget. We are so thankful for her life and the plan that God has for it! We love you, Olivia!!!
