Olivia and the Babies

Have you read this book?

It's one of Olivia's favorites. And it has quickly become her life.

I can think about cereal right now, Ian. I've decided I'm going to be a mommy and I've got a lot to do.

You guys remember the doll that Dan's grandfather gave Olivia? She's obsessed. She calls it 'baby' (its one of the 15 words she knows). Baby must do everything with us.

I've never seen her so sad as when we ask her to say goodbye to baby before she leaves for school. Its not her mad temper tantrum cry. Her bottom lip sticks out and she's just so sad to leave her best friend behind.

When she wakes up in the morning, the first thing she says is "baby?"

She says hi to baby. Literally. She says, "Hi to baby" as she waves.

Baby came with us to get donuts on the 4th.

Baby watches Elmo with us.

I told Olivia we needed to go to target. She rush around the house. Found a Vera Bradley lunch box, shoved a lovie, her sippy cup and some stickers inside. Threw it over her shoulder. Put baby in the stroller and headed outside.

Baby gets thirsty.

Baby goes to whole foods.

Baby gets so many hugs and kisses.

Olivia shares her breakfast with baby.

Baby's mouth has to be cleaned too. Baby needs to wash her hands when Olivia does. I now have two children.

I'm putting Olivia in the car at Target and then folding up the doll stroller to throw in the trunk. 

Everyone thinks baby is real. I had a lady ask me how far apart they were. I think she was more concerned with why I was letting a toddler push a 6 month old in a doll stroller.

It really is sweet that she cares for this baby so much. She's going to be the best mommy one day.


  1. Oh my goodness! She's so sweet. I bet she'd be an awesome big sister too. I love the picture of her hugging baby. The little look on her face is the sweetest

  2. Oh my goodness! How sweet is Olivia!? Hallie has a puppy she does that with! Maybe Olivia is trying to tell you something. ..

  3. This is totally the sweetest post - even if baby is scary! She is going to love this when she's older!
