6 weeks old

Alot has been going on in the last couple of weeks. Olivia is getting so big so fast, she's sleeping better through the night, waking up only one time (usually) around 3:00 and again at 6:00. I have to say she's been such a great addition to our family and I really can't remember what it was like without her. It's amazing how you have so much love for something so small.
Two weekends ago we got Olivia Baptized and it went really well, she slept through the whole thing :).We chose my mom and dad as her godparents. My mom and dad are such a huge part of our lives and I know they will guide Olivia in the right direction. I love that my parents are so young, Catholics believe that if something were to happen to the parents then the godparents would step in and raise the kids. Tyler and I couldn't think of anyone better than my mom and dad. My parents are such great people and have so much love for all the grand kids. I am so lucky to have them not only has my parents but as my best friends. We baptised Olivia at St. Vincent De Paul, we absoluetly love our parish. We have an amazing deacon, his name is deacon John and he loves Tyler. Tyler was baptised during easter and became friends with just about everyone in the parish, so we've decided to stay. After Olivia's baptism we had a little reception over at my parents house, which was a lot of fun. I love being around family. I must say Tyler and I feel so blessed to have such great people in our lives and we know we couldn't do it without everyone. So thank you to everyone who was able to come. Here are some pictures of her getting baptized.

Also, this last week or so Olivia has started laughing more and smiling all the time. Every morning when I go into her room she looks up and has the biggest smile on her face. Tyler and I laugh because we are NOT morning people, so to have a baby who is so happy in the morning is refreshing. She is also getting a lot stronger, she's holding up her head when you put her on the ground (for only a few minutes) or on your stomach. She's also starting to act like she wants to roll over.  But here are some pictures my mom and I have been taking the last couple of days.

oh my gosh! what a sweetie! I love her big smile! I never knew why people had Godparents and my whole dad's side is Catholic so i don't know why i never knew that but that makes total sense! I'm giving my kids god parents from now on!

She is so cute. I can't believe how fast she is changing. I think it's funny that she is a morning person. She must get that from Grandma Dia :o)
