Her Half Birthday was celebrated on January 18th, we had friends over for Pizza and Cupcakes, Leigh attempted to spell Olivia out on the cupcakes, but we all know her middle name isn't even close to Martha Stewart, Leigh is hoping that Olivia will look back on the pictures when she is older and remember the lesson she was taught at an early age "Its the thought that counts".
Mommy and Daddy gave Olivia a Jumparoo for her Half Birthday present, we are thrilled with her reaction, in her eyes its the greatest toy on Earth. With every bounce/jump a smile spreads across her face and she generally falls into a fit of giggles within seconds. She LOVES it.
YaYa picked Olivia up early from "school" so that she would be home when Leigh got home. Leigh had a rough week of work and needed some quality time with Baby Olivia.
Grammie and PawPaw Turner arrived around 5:30pm to spend the weekend with the "Birthday Baby". With them they brought two new toys for Olivia, which she adores, she loves the new sounds and shapes, but what Olivia really loved, even though she doesn't know it yet, is that Grammie and PawPaw brought Brad's old Red Flyer Wagon that was given to him as a child by his Grandpa Martin, she will treasure it.
Olivia was given the green light to stay up "past" her bedtime, usually we have to hold her eye lids open to keep her awake until 7pm, but she was bouncing in her jumparoo until 9pm like a little rock star.
Besides the Red Flyer wagon Brad's favorite present that Olivia received would have to be the Redskin outfit from The Koehlers, Olivia had a blast playing with the hangers. Leigh's favorite would have to be the new Pink Shoes she received from Brian and Molly :)

Riley is very upset over Leigh going back to work, he has been losing sleep at night just thinking about being in his crate all day after 7 months of freedom, he has been caught napping during the day to catch up on his lost sleep (see above). He looks stressed doesn't he?
Baby Olivia has lost her little voice, we are thinking she might be getting sick, but right now she just has a cough that makes her laugh and a very scratchy voice, its adorable. She tries to giggle and it barely comes out, she tries to do her dinosaur growl but its very deep and scratchy.
We have a quiet weekend planned, Brad and Leigh's Dad are going to the shooting range for some "practice" on Saturday morning and then of course we will all be glued to the TV at 4:30 to cheer on the Redskins (Leigh and her parents are saving the majority of their cheers for next weekends Pats Game, but just as Brad cheers for the Sox, Leigh returns the favor and hopes for a big W for the Redskins). And then of course numerous errands to get the whole family ready for Leigh's return to work.
Olivia is looking forward to Miss Kristen's visit next weekend...

Sad News: Megs officially has left Richmond for her new life in Columbus, Georgia. She will be arriving at her brand new house and will be living in sin with her darling fiance, Tim, and starting her new job at Aflac on Monday. While Leigh, Brad and Olivia will miss her to death, they are thrilled for her that she is beginning a new chapter in her life.
