Friday, August 22, 2008 - Update

I love the Fall. I love everything about it. . .the weather, the changing leaves, the clothes, football season. I don't watch a lot of football, but Ryan always gets so excited about it that it makes me happy too. We didn't have a fall last year at all. Every day for 105 days, I went from our garage to the hospital parking garage without even stepping outside. Every day from summer until December, which is pretty much winter in my book. It was impossible to enjoy the season when my childrens' futures were uncertain. The cooler weather that we've had lately has me eagerly anticipating fall and I'm looking forward to enjoying it this year. Today has been a little warmer than I'd like, but it's still nice for August. Olivia and I have been thoroughly enjoying our morning walks.

We are having her first birthday party tomorrow. I can't believe it's already here. I don't think I've mentioned that Olivia officially has her first tooth (with a second one on it's way.) She is also finally sitting up unassisted for a limited amount of time. She's probably been able to do it for awhile now, but she always crosses her feet which makes it difficult. And. . .she likes to rock back and fall over. What a silly girl!

Be sure to check back this weekend for all the birthday party pics!!
