This morning we went to one of my favorite places...JoAnn's. Ella and I picked out these fabrics to make patriotic dresses for the 4th of July. I like what we chose because even though it is red, white and blue, it doesn't have anything on it that screams 4th of July so they can wear it more than once. I am thinking about a three tier dress with ruffles for Ella and a top and capri's for Olivia, but I might change my mind.
Then we met daddy for lunch at Chick-Fil-A.
Next we headed to a local splash park for some water fun. They both had the best time.
Olivia walked right into a stream of water. She about jumped out of her skin.
Then she thought it was funny.
Some little girls had some water balloons that Ella had been secretly wanting. They shared one with her and she was thrilled. Once she got water in it she went around asking people if she could throw it at them. Someone finally said yes. However, the balloon bounced off the girl and busted on the ground. Oh well.
Olivia is 13 months old today. She is walking everywhere. She can say lots of words including thank you, mom, dad, Ella, Elmo, dog, and hi. She also loves the song "Old McDonald" and will sing "eieio" at the right time. She can hold up one finger when you ask her how old she is. She is learning some animal sounds and can point to a dog and say "dog" and then bark. She can also do this for duck, but her quack sounds a little scary (it's more like a roar really). She will shake her head yes or no when you ask her a question. Olivia's favorite foods right now are steamed carrots, corn, green beans, yogurt, bananas, raisins, spaghetti, and of course ice cream. If she sees someone with ice cream she immediately walks over to them and starts pointing and saying "that". It is so funny. She is growing so quickly. It is hard to believe that she is a toddler!
