Little Olivia is growing right up. How a little baby goes from newborn to four months old in what seems like much less time than four months is amazing to me. How we’re almost at the end of September already when it seems like that week was just the end of May is crazy. I must be getting older.
This stage with Olivia is just so fun. When my babies are tiny, I think the newborn stage is my favorite. When they out-grow that and reach the next stage, then I think that stage is my favorite. I guess they’re just all my favorite. But Ben, especially, is loving a more responsive child, one who loves interaction and talking, one who can just giggle her heart out… Her personality really feels like it’s emerging. She is just a sweetheart of a baby, seems very tenderhearted already.
I ran out the door the other evening to take a quick photo shoot before it got too dark. I was messing with some of the lighting settings on my camera, and think I set them too light. Baby looks more light-skinned on these pictures than she does in real life.
This dress was given by a friend… Just darling!
Closeup of those precious eyes and kissable lips.
Olivia has been a delightful baby, ever since she passed the somewhat colicky stage. She smiles so readily, although when she isn’t smiling she can look so serious.
I love the interaction between Zoe and Olivia. Zoe just adores her little sister, and can make her giggle and laugh so much! Of course, that just does wonders for Zoe’s ego, and she tries to love on her all the more. Zoe’s pet name for Olivia right now is “Love of my Life.” )
Yes, Baby is a thumb-sucker. I think it’s the darlingest thing ever! But I’m still trying to push a pacifier on her, because I can take a pacifier eventually but not a thumb, but she will often push it out and stick in her thumb.
Silver shoes – whether baby-sized or me-sized… I just can’t resist.
She seems so big on this picture!
And a few indoor pictures. A baby picture-post is clearly for the grandparents and aunties/uncles who hardly get to see her. I know other people just won’t appreciate it as much. And that’s okay.
When she smiles, there are dimples in full glory. How she got this stray gene, I don’t know. But I am delighted!
So, far-away family ~ this is for you.
And anyone else that cares to see pictures of a beautiful baby.
