We flew in on a Friday morning and went to John's mom's place and relaxed. Eventually everyone made their way over and we had a nice dinner. Everyone loved Olivia and kept commenting on her beautiful blue eyes (I am so glad they have stayed that color!). Here are some pictures of her with her cousins and Uncle Adam:
Uncle Adam and Billy (who is almost exactly a year older than O)
Courtney is going to be 4 in September. Look how big O is next to her!
Olivia loved her Uncle Adam and especially his hat. She loves hats and glasses. She takes my sunglasses off my face every day.

We also went to see one of John's good friends, Micah, who was a groomsman in our wedding, and his wife Pebble, who just had twin girls in December, Avery and Pebble. They also have a son who is almost 6. They were adorable and so small! Well, at about 2 1/2 months they were both over 11 pounds, but light as a feather compared to our chunkster. Here is Olivia with Avery. O is not the gentlest child so we were careful with her around them. I love the look on Avery's face.
Olivia got to spend a lot of quality time with her Granny which I know they both appreciated. We left Sunday afternoon after a wonderful long weekend.
Erin and Ryan were recently in town for Spring Training and went out to Mesa to see the Cubs play. While there they picked up a little something for O, much to John's chagrin. We surprised him with her in it and he wasn't happy. She looked so cute though!
We have her 9 month check-up this Friday, although she was at the Dr.'s office last week and the week before. She weighed in at 23 pounds 6 ounces last week. I'm not sure on length but I think around 30 inches. She's getting so big! Turns out she had the flu, though we really thought it was only a cold. She was in a surprisingly good mood for having the flu. She just couldn't shake a cough she had had for about 2 weeks, but I think we are finally getting over it. She slept through the night for the first time in 2 1/2 weeks last night and it was awesome!
