February, March, & April

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. So that means I have a lot of catching up to do. February was pretty significant for Olivia. On Feb. 5th she weighed 9 lbs 11.5 oz. We took her off of oxygen, off of all the monitors, and off of the thickening I had to add to her bottles. It is so much easier to care for her and it is a relief knowing she is not dependent on anything. The eye doctor said her eyes have completely developed with no problems and her pediatrician is amazed at how fast she is catching up. This picture was taken on Feb. 26th when she turned 4 months old.
During the last couple months we have spent time at both grandma's and grandpa's. They all love spending time with Olivia. This picture is Olivia sleeping with grandpa Beck.

March was kind of crazy. Olivia had her 4 month apointment on the 5th. She weighed 11 lbs 12.5 oz and she was 22 1/2 in long. We were in the middle of trying to buy a house and we ended up closing on it 3 weeks after our original closing date. My sister Kristy and her friend Jessie came to stay with us during their spring break. This is Olivia's 5 month picture on March 26th.

Aaron's mom and sisters threw a baby shower for Oliva on March 28th. It was so much fun and so many people came. Olivia got lots of cute things. Thanks for the wonderful shower. Olivia was blessed on March 29th. We had lots of family come to Malad. It was such a great day. Here is Olivia in her blessing dress.
Here is the back of her dress.
On April 3rd Olivia weighed in at 13lbs 1oz. On April 4th my aunts on my mother's side threw Olivia a baby shower. I couldn't believe how many people came. It was such a great day thanks for everyone that came and helped with the shower. Olivia is one lucky girl. On the 6th we finally got to move into our new home! We love it lots. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and we are in a really nice neighborhood. We had lots of help moving into our house. Aaron's mom was such a great help with Olivia so I could move and unpack. Lots of neighbors and friends helped with the big stuff and my mom and sister Kristy came for the weekend to help. Here is a picture of our new house.
On April 16th we got a visit from Aaron's sister Amy and her daughter Tara. We hadn't seen them for a while and it was fun to have them stay at our new house. Tara loved taking care of Olivia. Here is a picture of her and Olivia.
Here is a cute picture of Olivia I took after church on the 19th.Olivia turned 6 months old today the 26th of April and here is her picture.

Congrats on getting into your house, it looks really nice. We are sorry we missed the blessing - Cole woke up with croup and a runny nose so figured we better not come. I love all your cute pictures.
