3 Month Anniversary
WoW! Four posts in three days. It must be a record for me. LOL!
Today is the three month anniversary of the day that they placed Olivia in my arms for the first time. It is really unbelieveable to me. It seems longer to me. It feels like she has been in our family longer than 3 months. Do we get to count the time we were waiting for her???
She has changed so much in the last three months though. I can hardly remember the little girl we brought home. I think she has even changed in her pictures. She seems older. Maybe she has become more self assured and confident or something, but she seemed so lost and helpless in those early pictures. Now I see a little imp.
Today she was a little stinker. Days like today remind me why I may be too old to have young children. It seems like she has a day once and a while when she gets into everything. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING!!! I was busy trying to clean and everytime I turned around she was getting into something that she wasn't suppose to. I think she can tell when I am not focused on her and she does this on purpose. I was ready to scream and pull my hair out. By the time it was bedtime tonight I was exhausted. I had yelled and snapped at her, she got swatted and I even smacked her hand once before the day was over. None of it phased her a bit. Oh, when I swatted her (diapered) butt, she looked up at me and stuck her elbow up and said "Owie" and wanted a kiss. Then ran off laughing. She really knows how to distract me and get my attention on something else. Little stinker!! I think she was growing horns today. UGH! But at bedtime she grabbed my face with both of her hands and gave me a big kiss. Okay, I forgive her and it was all worth it...again.
