Today was a very special day for Miss Livi. 
She was baptized today. 
I had bought a dress for her while we in China and was so excited for her to wear it and show everyone how darn cute she was. 
We took pictures beforehand

Some with Mike and Lindsey, her Godparents...

And some of our family....boys and all...
When it was time for her to be Baptized, she just looked around, wondering what was going on. 
Prayers were said over the moms and dads.
We try and take these opportunities of all the cousins together and dressed nice to get a group picture.  Besides, it was the first one that Olivia got to be in.
Miss Livi posed for some pics in her pretty dress.  She knew she was the guest of honor today.
We headed home where we ate some lunch and opened presents...
Then it was time for cake.....I had made it the night before.  It was the first one I got to make for her.
What a great day!  She was soaking in all the attention.  I think she's growing quite used to it.
God Bless Olivia.

First Haircut

On Saturday, Jason brought Olivia to the salon so I could give her a haircut.....okay, a trim.  Okay, a dusting. 
It's not like it's long and getting shaggy...but it just needed the edges cleaned up a bit.  The buzz cut she was sporting was starting to show some stragglers and those just had to go.  I figured it would be good to get her all cleaned up before having her Baptism the next day.  She sat so still, she just laughed and watched.  I'm thinkin' you get used to haircuts when you get one as often as she probably did.
