“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2015.”
Olivia: You have a love/hate relationship with bubble baths. You love the bubbles, but hate that they stick to you and sometimes get in your mouth.
Of all the weekends I’ve written about so far, this one has come and gone the fastest. I cannot believe it’s already been a week (and one day!) since Easter.
Time, slow down.
Also, can I just throw in a quick HALLELUJAH for the weather this weekend? Freakin beautiful. We were outside every single day this weekend.
We decided to mark Friday as our official ‘spring cleaning’ day. I got clean the top floor, he cleaned the bottom floor, and we were VERY excited to get to open all of the windows!
We decided to get a nice start to our Spring Cleaning day by getting some Einstein Bros. Bagels. And a nice start it was. We also left with a half dozen to bring home so naturally, I’ve eaten a bagel with cream cheese every morning.
Afterward, we went to Wal-Mart to pick up a new plastic bin to put another set of Olivia’s outgrown clothes in(don’t even get me started).Continue Reading
Ever since Olivia has been born, she has always loved being in the water. When we were ready to give her her first bath, we were preparing ourselves for her to be scared and crying and cold, and she just sat there and let us do our thing, and even take a few pictures. Here she is at a week:
At the time, we were living with Dominic’s parents, and we had the entire attic to ourselves, it was a nice little setup, and sometimes, though small, I actually miss it. Olivia’s first home, her first room, our first place as a family of three, kinda nostalgic thinking about it all. Anyway, we had a half bath up there and as a gift from our baby shower, we received this little baby spa (that we registered for because I wanted it SO bad!) and that was where we gave her all of her baths. Here she is at 6 months:
We used that little pink tub until she was about 8 months, and then when we moved in our town home, we used it for a few weeks until one day I just decided to put her in the sink. It was easier on my back, big enough for her to move around in, and bonus, I could load the dishwasher and clean up the kitchen all while keeping an eye on her. And if you’re wondering, we have introduced her to the regular bath tub, and sometimes we’ll put her in there. If we’re in a really huge hurry, I’ll take her with me in the shower, or, I’ve even gone in the bath tub with her and just relaxed while she played…can you say MomWin? However, while all of those options work just fine, I still mainly go with the kitchen sink because I like to kill two birds with one stone. Clean baby and clean kitchen all at once. Boom.
Okay so this next set of photos….I’m warning you now, you are probably going to die because of all the cute. At least you will have died happy, right?
This little girl has such a love for water (just like me), even pool water, and I hope she never grows out of it.
