This is how we spent our Memorial Day morning. My father-in-law passed away in 2008 and was a veteran of the Vietnam War. We go to the Veterans Cemetery every year to pay our respects to all fallen soldiers but this year was especially sentimental because it was the first year Olivia sort of understood what we were doing. We explained that this is where Daddy's father is and that he's in heaven now with Jesus. She looked at my husband so sincerely and said "Daddy what happened to him?", we told her again that he passed away and is in heaven and she said "aww Daddy I'm sorry." which sent us all into emotional overload.
When did she become such a big girl? Swinging "super higher" on a big girl swing...just in her diaper of course since it was so hot and muggy that day.
Olivia is obsessed with sunglasses and has about 5 pairs. These are her new favorites!
My little ballerina. Her 1st dance recital is coming up soon and we can't wait!
