Livi's Favorite Song!

This song works like a charm if Livi is upset or bored so we thought we would share it with all of you as it seems to be her favorite at the moment!

5 months

Well it's been a little bit. Things have been busy for all three of us. Work wise and at home.

Little Olivia has surpassed the 5 month mark now. She's getting much bigger and so many new things have been going on.

  • She has been rolling over regularly. Front to back, back to front. She can do it all. 
  • She sits up as well. Once in a while if she leans for something she'll make a full faceplant like daddy after the bar. We can sit her up on the couch and play with her and for the most part she stays vertical.
  • I think I mentioned grabbing before but now it's even more prevalent. My beard seems to be a big target.
  • Laughing  is easily achievable now. Her cheeks are like a trigger for baby giggles. She also laughs when I make funny faces at her.
Other than that we've been following the Canucks playoff run and celebrating together as they made it to the finals. Livi usually wears her Nucks gear and waves her white towel on the goals.

Her Christening is going to be this weekend so it should be good to get everyone together and have a good time.

Mothers Day

First time Mom Samantha Nutley received the highest of accolades this weekend on the event known as "Mothers Day". Due to her tiring efforts attending to the beck-and-call of Miss Olivia Nutley, Samantha was awarded the coveted "Best Mommy" award. This prestigious prize included a bouquet of flowers, a singing card and various treats. It was presented along with a tray of a delectable breakfast made by Master Chef Seán Nutley and saucier Olivia Nutley. Most say she was a ringer for the trophy as her hard work all year had critics singing her praises.

Making Progress

Lots of progress in the world of Olivia in the last few weeks.

She's started rolling over from her front to her back. As seen in the video below, she's able to make the full flip and land facing up. It now means we have to be even more careful while she's laying down somewhere because she could roll right off of whatever she's on. Babies don't bounce.

She also grabs everything in her sight. Glasses off your face, hair off your head and even a nostril or two. Even walking by something she'll grab it and hold on. Most things go straight to her mouth such as toys, fingers and newspapers. She tried to eat the comics while I was reading them to her. Maybe her tongue is like a Silly Puddy and will take the impression of the paper. Probably shouldn't test that out.

She also took her bottle in her own hands and drank it. That one was a shock and probably just a rare moment. Pretty amazing to watch though.
