More firsts!

Olive's had more firsts this week...
She climbed all the way up the stairs multiple times! (12 stairs!)
and she walked with a walker on the treadmill in PT today.
She was positioned where she didn't have to hold weight, and the therapist did most of the leg moving - but she started to get the hang of it at times.
She walked the whole 8 minutes with out fussing too.

Olive plays!

Olive made another developmental milestone today...
She would mimic me by holding a teddy bear and 'loving' on it by patting it and rubbing it.
She also let me feed her a few small bites of chocolate ice cream from a spoon!
The majority of it drooled down her face, but she let me try!

Family Pictures

We finally got family pictures taken... we've only been home nearly 3 months!
We were so blessed when my girlfriend Jen offered to take them for us.
The kids spent most of the time fussing, crying, and being frustrated.
It's a wonder that she was able to get ANY pictures at all.

Breakfast Feasting...

The other day, we enjoyed breakfast for dinner.
And the kids and I termed it 'breakfast feasting' that night...
I enjoy making breakfast food for dinner every once and a while because it allows the kids to help in a safe way... as opposed to say, grilling.
So, we had a feast of huge proportions and snuggled down for the night with very full bellies.

The Girls' Birthdays

The girls had their birthday party this weekend.
Evelyn didn't get much of a smash cake experience last year, but she wasn't having it this year either.
Olive wasn't sure exactly what was going on, and this was her first birthday celebration, so she was equally confused and thrilled.
She swiped anyone with in reach with her cake-covered hands.
Evelyn had had enough as soon as she was swiped.
Olive got extremely messy, and ended up having a bath in the sink right then and there.
They were both spoiled with gifts, and Ethan even got a big wheel too!
Olive met her Great Grandparents for the first time too.
It was a nice weekend.
