Time Flies: Week 3

Surprise!!  We made it through the third week.  Here are some highlights:

No pictures just yet, I'm still a little pasty from 42 weeks underwater.

The best part about this week was:
  • Getting out of the house.
Some things we've learned:
  • Having baby acne is just as crappy as having big people acne.
  • Sometimes she just needs to cry!
  • Hank has taken a back seat, like it or not...
  • Going and doing things is even more fun with her--at this stage at least!
Some things we've learned the hard way:
  • Time is going by too fast...
  • Situations can become very stressful very quickly.  Take it all one moment at a time and realize that babies will be babies.
Olivia loves:
  • Being held!
  • Taking baths!
  • Bright colors!
  • Going to the grocery store!
  • All of the new outfit choices now that she is big enough for 0-3 clothes!
Olivia surprised us when:
  • She proved she really can hold her head up!
  • She starred in a movie on her three week birthday.
  • She was a total beach babe.
  • She weighed 10 lbs, 4.5 oz today!  

Just like her Mom, O loves to take baths and they are few and far between.  Just keepin' it real.
Stonehenge: Binkie edition.
This girl LOVES a stroller ride.  The bumpier the better.
Ella and Olivia.  We took a road trip to visit Grandma and Aunt Linda.
They were perfect angels, with matching red hair and all...
We haven't made her big entrance at Publix yet, but she has hit the Teeter, BiLo, and Trader Joe's last week alone.
And she LOVES it.  That's my girl.

Join us next Monday night at 11:08 p.m. to see what Olivia gets into during her fourth week of life.


  1. I love how you said that sometimes babies just need to cry. When my daughter was born I was so upset when she would cry and I couldn't figure out why. My Dad told me that babies cry to get their exercise! It made me feel so much better. :)
