This one is my favorite. I just love the hat and the smile... so stinkin cute.And this expression just cracks me up.
Also, I think this was most likely our last Sunday in our ward. I am going to miss everyone there so much! Since our new ward is at 9:00, sometimes I day dream about going to both and just pretending that we never moved. But I'm sure our new ward will be great. And it will be fun because Aaron's brother is moving into our condo, so the Opie's are moving, but the Opie's are moving in. Try not to get too confused!

Rice cereal goodness
Carrots (before we found out they constipated her!)
And this is hanging out with our friends, 5 year old Kaylee took this picture! Olivia started out on the other end of the blanket and scooted all the way off it to get my foot!

Anyway then I was putting the paint in my trunk and I saw the fudgesicles I had just gotten at Frye's. I took one out to enjoy while driving home, and I noticed there was this lady fixing the Coke machine outside Home Depot. She had been there when I went in, and was still there when I went out, on a radio and looked really frustrated. I thought I could pay it forward and give her a fudgesicle. So I grabbed one and ran up to her and asked, "Hey wanna fudgesicle?" And she kind of snapped at me, "What?!" And I was like, "Well I just was about to have one myself, I just got them at the grocery store, and I noticed you must have been out here for a long time, and you look really hot, I thought it might cool you off." Then she smiled, and got teary eyed and told me I just made her day. It was fun, because someone had just made my day!

When Aaron and I got married 3 years ago, I knew his mom did something from home, and earned as much as $10,000 in a month. I had no clue what it was. I had never heard of any work from home opportunities before, so I had no bias against "network marketing". I wanted to know more about what she did. She I went to a Tuesday night meeting. I met lots of people also making lots of money, but also had lots of health results. So we decided I would start the products. I was dealing with a lot of fatigue. Probably slightly more than the average college student. I got sick a lot. Swollen glands and fevers frequently. Sinus infections probably every couple of months. Horrible menstrual headaches. None of these things seemed like huge issues to me. But anyway, 3 weeks taking Reliv and I started to feel better. I'll never forget waking up before my alarm clock, actually ready to get out of bed. Anyway, 3 years later I still feel great. But the most exciting result to me was when we started to try to get pregnant. It was taking forever. Every month that went by was really driving me insane. It was literally all I could think about. Finally after a year, before Aaron would agree to fertilty doctors, he wanted me to add Soy Essentials (one of reliv's functional formulas) to my Reliv Shake. 2 months later we were pregnant. I don't know where we'd be otherwise. And of course we've told people about it. Average income is around $200 a month, but our best month was $4,000. And now we're working towards allowing me to always be a stay-at-home mom, and dreaming of the day when our income is enough that even Aaron could come home.

Olivia is 5 months old now! She amazes me daily with how she's figuring out this world. She's making lots of new noises and babbles. She's still not a pro at sitting up. She tries to crawl, but hasn't been too successful, although I am afraid because it looks like any day she's just going to pick up and move on me. Lately she's been a terrible sleeper. Waking up lots and lots during the night. I nurse her back to sleep, but I don't think this is the best thing to do. It gets her right back to sleep, but then I keep waking up... so I don't know. I tried keeping her in bed with us, I tried leaving her in the crib, and then I tried leaving her in our bed and I went on the couch. lol... I think it might be teething. Her gums seem pretty swollen. But we have so much going on, this trip, then the move, then in Sept. going away on that trip... so after all that is said and done we'll establish a better sleeping routine, and hopefully get her sleeping through the night. In the meantime, I'll try to enjoy it, because she def won't be a baby forever.

Second of all... two days ago Olivia was just laying there on a blanket on the ground and Aaron and I were talking on the couch, and she just said, "Da-da! Da-da-da-da-DAAaaaa" and she hasn't stopped since. It's funny because spend a lot of time telling her, "Saaay mama!" or "Saaaay dada!" and then she just did it all unproked. Of course she has no clue what she's saying... or does she? It's funny this morning A went into her room and she started saying it.
More in Olivia news... I think I got overconfident with the baby food, and started to move too fast for my poor baby's tummy. I was giving her rice cereal three times a day... twice a day with carrots. And then she seemed to be doing great with that, so I gave her just carrots at lunch time. Anyway, basically she got constipated, and a hurting tummy. And cried from 7-10 last night when she finally fell asleep. So I guess I'll ease up, and go back to just the cereal for a while longer.
