Saturday, August 7, 2010 - Update

The three of us took a trip to Imagine That Toys and Olivia was in heaven.  She pushed a little shopping cart with Abby Cadabby all around the store.  When it was time to leave, we put Abby away and it just broke Olivia’s heart.  She didn’t throw a fit. . .she just kept asking where she was as if she’d lost her best friend.  I didn’t even know that she liked Abby Cadabby that much.  So. . .we’re suckers and we bought it for her.  The two of them have been inseparable ever since.  She’ll fit in quite nice to Olivia’s Sesame Street birthday party in a few weeks.


Here she is feeding Abby.


Ryan got back last night from a business trip to Seattle.  We’re so glad to have him back home.

Before gymnastics. . .in the car. . .Olivia and I had to have a little talk. It went a little something like this.

Me: Olivia, we're getting ready to go to gymnastics.
Olivia: gynastics!
Me: Now, we have to remember to listen to the teacher and do what we are told and NOT run around everywhere.
Olivia: And don't touch other people's socks.

Last time, I was grossed out when she took some little boy's socks out of the cubby. Of course, she remembers not to do that, but everything else? In one ear and out the other. . . .

Olivia and Lily
Those people who have seen Olivia in person know that Gogum and Lily are never far away. She takes them everywhere and absolutely adores them. She cannot sleep without each of them laying at the top corners of her bed. She adores them so much that they are filthy!! I can take the battery out to wash Gogum, but not Lily. I've considered just buying her brand new ones, but after watching Toy Story 3. . .I can't bring myself to do it. LOL. It's just amazing the things that your child falls in love with. I hear her in the morning just giggling in her room saying "Silly Lily!!" or "Gogum, that's silly." Apparently, they communicate with each other as well. It's just the sweetest thing watching her interact with them. They definitely feel like part of the family.

We have missed a few days of gymnastics and they allow you to "make up" your missed days. We decided to go tonight so that Olivia could take a class with her cousin and best friend, Izzy. We had the added benefit of my brother being there to take pictures. I finally have pictures of Olivia in gymnastics class! Thanks Donnie!

Izzy made sure Olivia felt welcome in her class.

Olivia stepping over the teddy bears. Occasionally, she had to bend down and give them a nice, loving pat.

And she rode the pulley!!

Yay Olivia!!!

Her favorite part of all, however, is singing the bye bye song.

Here's a short video of Olivia and Izzy practicing the snake.
