Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - Update

Olivia has grown up so much in the last few weeks. I feel like we're de-baby-proofing the house as we threw away all of her bottles, packed up her high chair, took the padding off the coffee table, put away a lot of old "baby" toys, etc. Today, she came up to me and said she wanted to try to peepee in the potty and that's exactly what she did. So, we might start potty training sooner than I thought. She had a brief peak of interest a few months ago, but hasn't shown much since.

She's also starting to show interest in changing her babies' diapers. Every time I change her, I also have to change baby's and duck's and otter's, etc diapers. And, we can't just change their diaper. . .we have to use wipes too. Of course, I can't put the same diaper back on them either. . .I have to get a new one. Boy, I'm going to have to buy some doll diapers. I did save some of her preemie and newborn diapers for this very reason. Olivia LOVES her birth size doll. It wasn't intended to be a toy for her. . .more of a keepsake, so she knows that she has to be very gentle with it. In the above picture, she carefully put the doll on her bed, covered her up and informed me that she was sleeping. She knows this doll is very special.

WOW! What a visual though, huh?! To see the REAL her lying next to how small she USED to be.... wow! That's a miracle...And also sweet that she likes to play with it.. and even more special to me, that you LET her play with it.. some people I'm sure wouldn't let their kids play with something so special/expensive.. but you think like me ;) It's a blessing that she CAN play with it! Praise God for Olivia! (I'm teary) seriously! I will bawl like a baby when I meet you.. I told Rodney.. it will be like meeting a movie star...lol :)
