Book Club Summer Break

You may have noticed that it has been months since I have posted about book club, or maybe you have been too busy to even notice. Summer has just been crazy for us and there is hardly any time for reading or evening watching my favorite TV shows. I have been super busy at work and whenever I get home I either want to soak up every minute with Olivia or go to bed when she does, which is about 9pm. I love reading, which is why it is frustrating that I don't have much time for it. The book club selections over the summer haven't been exciting to me, which also hasn't enticed me to pick up a book. Maybe when Summer is over and life slows down, I can recommit to reading the book club selections. I do wonder what I did with all of my time before I had Olivia... Anyways, enjoy your week and this lovely hot Summer weather!

8 Months Old

Summer is flying by fast and it has been so hot here! Olivia is not slowing down at all and growing like a weed. It's hard to believe she is 8 months old today because she already acts so grown up. She is crawling a ton and is getting pretty fast, can hold onto the edge of the couch and walk a few feet, loves to eat her baby food purees and puffs, still isn't sleeping through the night, and has uttered a few sounds that are close to mama and dada. I love this age where she interacts with us, has a smile that melts my heart, and loves to explore. Our summer so far has included lots of swimming, plenty of walks to the park and around the neighborhood, lots of baseball games, and spending lots of time with family. Olivia absolutely loved her swimming lessons and is a total water baby! She has also mastered picking up her baby food snacks and making it to her mouth most of the time. Sleep and napping is questionable on most days and nights and I have really begun to think that our child is just one that doesn't need much sleep... completely opposite of her mother :(

Here are a few pictures of Olivia in her 8 month onesie this morning... enjoy!

this smile and laughing just melts my heart and makes me chuckle

And a few more fun pictures from our summer fun...

To my sweet Olivia... I could have never imagined that the days with you could get any more fun. I love seeing you grow and learn and can't wait for the journey ahead of us... love you munchkin!
