so... olive has two costumes. it's possible i like halloween more than a heathy amount. i planned to make her "real" one, but was a little worried that either i wouldn't succeed in making it, or it wouldn't turn out as planned. so we bought her the cutest little elephant costume just in case it didn't work out. well the costume i made did work out, and it is hopefully going to be pretty hilarious and adorable. it left us with the issue of two cute costumes, and of course i couldn't let the elephant go to waste--so she wore it tonight as we carved pumpkins. good enough for me. 

we've got a little cheeser on our hands.

remember how im the worst at blogging. wowza. my sweet little babe is six months old. time flies. seriously, people don't just say that for fun. olive's infancy has gone by in a flash. she is sitting up, blabbering non-stop, smiling like nobody's business, and interested in every i phone/remote/xbox paddle, monitor in sight. she is a busy, busy girl and we cannot get enough of her. i've taken a picture every month and it's crazy to see so much change in such a short amount of time.

i have been feeling so very grateful and blessed for this little one the last little while. when trials come about you start to realize what is really important, and there is nothing better than the joy of a sweet innocent baby. she brightens my day every day--and i can't even explain how happy and thankful i am to have a happy and healthy little one. being a mother is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me, these past six months have been the most challenging yet best of my life, and i can't wait to soak up every second of the next six. love you forever ms. olive.
