here's a quote from rett's text last night letting me know how it went:
"she did have a look of shock or absolute terror when i put her down and she couldn't find her paci. she never cried though. i almost died looking at her sad little face."
so, olivia, you did it! you also still slept through the night only waking about 6am to cry for a very short time and then went back to sleep.
such a big girl! :)

there are 5 in our class. 4 girls and 1 boy. all of the other kids are 2 or real close to 2 so o is definately the youngest. she didn't "get" what all was going on but that will come! she wouldn't leave my lap until about the last 10-15 minutes. and even then she'd run back every 20-30 seconds to, i guess, make sure i was still there.
as for the actual class we sang, played with instruments, balls, toys and scarves. she got the scarves and balls. "throwing" them at each other. she's good at throwing things! she also really liked the bubbles. wouldn't reach out to them but smiled and laughed a little.
a slight meltdown happened at the end of the class. she saw my camera in my purse and went straight for it. i told her "no" and redirected her and she went face down on the floor. that's her m.o. it's so funny but also slightly embarrasing. my only solution is to get down on her level and tell her, "no, we don't pitch fits." and then i pick her up and either leave or give her something else to play with. any other suggestions are welcome.
i'm so glad we're doing this. hopefully in a few weeks she'll be used to going and the other kids and will get into it more. i was a very shy child and she's showing me that she will be the same way. hopefully my plan of making her interact with others will work! surely it won't backfire on me....

we had a baby shower in w'boro to attend that started at 10 so i knew i needed to leave shortly before 9. i did good! we were on the road by 8:30 (thanks to me getting up before o!) the shower was fun but it was time for o's nap when we left there. this week we moved o to one nap a day and so far it's worked well. i'm so thankful to finally be at this stage b/c now it's easier to plan our days! i headed to my parents to drop o off (they were keeping her for the afternoon so i could run errands) and then headed to monroe. i spent a lovely day at the mall (now i remember why i quit going there), target and happy days. i've never been to happy days but have always heard what a good job they do on the free carwash when you get an oil change. thought i'd try it out. well, i got in the wrong line and i couldn't turn around so i had to pay for a carwash and didn't get my oil changed. boo!
after all that we ended up at jackie and brock's for my dad's bday celebration tonight. brock grilled some yummy steaks! now i know that o likes steak! she couldn't get enough! she has good taste. :)
i really hate that she had such a full day and i didn't take one picture. i left my camera at home and didn't realize it until about choudrant. i wasn't turning around then!
so just to get a couple of pics in this post (b/c i hate posts without pics) here are two outfits that i got in today and i'm super excited about them! i ordered them from a ragsland party and they turned out better than i imagined! if you're not familiar with ragsland check them out at http://www.ragsland.com/.
sorry for the most random post ever! just wanted to document our day!

me and the bday girl!
sorry court, this is a terrible angle but the only one i got!
then, today, i drove back over to monroe bright and early this morning for a continuing ed class. that was LOADS of fun. sorry, no pics. then, a nice lunch with courtney and stacey, another w'boro native, at a new sushi place in monroe. had fun girls!
i came back and my bunco group decided to go out tonight instead of playing. so, we enjoyed a fun night at RAW. this is my favorite restaurant in town. so, yes, i had sushi for both meals today. at least what i got was somewhat healthy - no cream cheese or fried things involved!
i've got a busy weekend planned with olivia so we should (barring any fit throwing) have a great time! her 15 mth apt is tmrw morning (in monre, so yes i get to drive over there 3 days in a row), then having friends over tmrw night, baby shower sat, dad's bday celebration sat evening and then church on sunday! o was promoted last week but she wasn't there for it. maybe she'll like her new room better than the nursery. everyone please say a quick prayer for that!! :) stay tuned for updates on our fun-filled weekend!

on the ride down. mama doesn't normally let her chew on her bows! of course gg lets her get away with more!
playing outside in the 100 degree weather
playing with big and max
they made her work for her trip! here she is cleaning out from underneath the couch! :)
very typical - happy with food in her hands!
look closely - big has his tounge stuck out - i'm sure some lovin' went on this past weekend!
i'm glad they all had a good time. i'm sure o will love spending time in the 'boro growing up! maybe they'll let her sit under the desk at the bank drivethrough and eat as many suckers as she'd like. i remember doing that as a kid!!
