Wake Up Call

Hannah can be a grump when she wakes up. She must take after her aunt (Actually Rachel thinks Hannah looks Aunt Lindsay and Olive looks like Aunt Jana). Here Olive is provoking her grumpiness by waking her up early from a late afternoon nap.

Special Delivery for Olive

Last week Olive received a package in the mail for her first birthday. A book and a play phone were the contents.


Olive witnesses Hannah and Heber getting sent to the corner. So every now and then she decides that she needs to go to the corner as well.

A Card Lover

Not the Arizona Cards, but rather birthday cards. This one was from her Grandma Susie (who her middle name was given for). She also got one from her Aunt Brandi. You'd think being a little baby she wouldn't care for a card, but she loves them. Here she is carrying the remnants of one all around the house.

The Week of the Olive

I declare this the week of the Olive. I thought after having twins I might not be able to adore our next little baby. But this little girl brought a whole new level of preciousness.

Kid Humor

One afternoon last week Heber and Hannah were putting there feet on their "fish puzzle," saying "Mommy look, feet on fish! Mommy look, feet on fish!"
They giggled and laughed about it for a while and kept trying to tell me how funny it was. They got a big kick out of it.
It is interesting how when they're young, we think kids' humor is strange. And someday when they're older, they'll be rolling their eyes as I'm laughing up a storm. I better soak it up while I can.

Virginia Tech

This is the building that I work/study in 5 days a week as well as the bus that I ride to commute there. The campus landscape and buildings at Virginia Tech are quite a contrast from those at Arizona State University.
