toe anyone?

Olivia has progressed from thumb sucking to toe sucking. It's hilarious. Like mother like daughter I guess. Actually, I never sucked my toes (at least I don't think) but I did suck my thumb. My left thumb to be precise. A lot of people call Olivia my little mini me. I'm starting to think it's true:
  • We're both left handed. Well, she sucks her left thumb and holds everything with her left hand, so I'm assuming.
  • I was my parents third child and Olivia is my third, also a girl. My parents had boy, girl, girl just like me.
  • My mom had me when she was 29 in the year 1978. I had Olivia when I was 29 in the year 2008.
  • Olivia and I share the same baby expressions. In all my baby pictures I have a very stoic look on my face. Olivia often pulls the same face in her pictures. She's actually a very happy, smiley baby but she just takes pictures very seriously.
  • Olivia and I both love to sing. I took her to a Christmas Eve service and she sang when the choir sang, right on cue. Pretty good for a 5 month old.
  • I was my parents easiest baby and Olivia has been my easiest far! Don't tell Ethan and Lilly or my other siblings, but it's so true.
  • Last but not least, we're both gorgeous! I had to throw that one in for fun :)

Thanks Jenny, I'm impressed too.

I never thought this bouncy seat would stick around our house this long, especially since we're ALWAYS stubbing our toes on it. It's one of those baby items you want to DI but you just can't get rid of because your babies love it so much, now it has sentimental value. We'll probably keep it around forever. Olivia has enjoyed it the most of all of them. That girl will sit and kick those toys for hours. We took the batteries out though. We learned the hard way with Ethan.
