It's a good thing she's so darn cute

We all slept better last night. Olivia slept 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Her Daddy and I woke up two or three times thinking we heard her crib rails rattling...a sure sign that she's climbing out. She wasn't...our minds were playing tricks on us. That's what happens when you find your daughter standing next to your bed in the middle of the night. You start to expect it to happen regularly.

Olivia just went down for her nap, and I expect it to be under 2 hours since she has decided to take a stand against long naps. I have a million things to do, so this will be brief.

Just wanted to make note of a few things that Olivia is doing now that make me happy to be her Mommy (despite the occasional sleep deprivation).

We have these two statues outside our front door...Mary and St. Francis. Olivia likes to say "Hi" to them when we go outside, and she has become fond of giving them each a kiss. When I see her kissing Mary, I always say, "Oh, that's so nice!", and now she says it.

"Hi, Fansis!"

*Kiss* So Nice!
I think I mentioned the politeness. I love how she says "Pease" after everything she requests. She has started to become very attached to her pacifier and blanket. "Pacy, pease? Blankie, pease?" It must be a phase of some sort, but she can't go anywhere now without these two things.

This morning, as Daddy was leaving for work, he gave her a kiss and said "Love You." Olivia responded, "Welcome!"

Olivia and Trey played awhile last night after a family dinner. They enjoyed riding Olivia's firetruck together. Olivia was getting tired, so of course she needed her pacy. When she knew Trey would be leaving soon, she chased him down to tackle him in her own style of hug. They are so cute and absolutely love playing together.
That's all for today. I'm going to attempt to mow the lawn before Olivia gets up. I'm relatively sure that I'll come in to find her awake and on top of something tall. What a climber that girl is!
