So much going on

I must first apologize for my negligence in writing. It is somewhat hypocritical of me because I gave my sister-in-law crap about not posting, but I haven't posted in forever. I think we all just think our lives are boring compared to others. Forgive me if this ends up being long, but it has been awhile.
I started school again on Friday and I am liking it so far. It is an online university, and it has been super easy so far. The first class you have to take is just basic internet stuff and where to find the tools you need to get through the program.
It would take more time than I care to spend typing to explain how the program works, so if you want to know more details let me know. In short, there are 40 assesments I have to complete, and I was lucky enough to have 13 of them taken care of with transfer credit. I am hoping to move through things quickly, because it is all self paced and the sooner I am done the sooner I can get to where I want to be: coaching.

Now on to the stuff you guys really want, what is going on with Olivia. She went swimming for real for the first time which was exciting because the water was still pretty cold.

She loved splashing in the water so much. She always loves to kick and splash in the tub too.

Livy is climbing all over everything now. The other day she was climbing on the printer to try and play with the blinds and she fell into her bumbo. It was hilarious because she couldn't get herself out.

Livy is the coolest baby around and she likes to flaunt it.

She also will eat just about anything you put in front of her. This is one of her favorites, smoked turkey from Rudy's. It was even funnier when we gave her some BBQ sauce that was a little spicy and she was trying to wipe it off her tongue.

Grandma Hardman came and visited us for Easter and we had a good time going to Sea World and playing with her.

Aunt Mary is here with us now and she has been such a great help. Livy loves following her all over the apartment, and especially pulling her hair. I really can't say enough about how grateful I am for my little sister and the help she has been already. We have been able to get so much more done thanks to her. She has discovered what it means to have allergies, and she has been such a good sport about it. She is the greatest.

She is such a little goofball and we love every minute with her. For whatever reason, she LOVES being upside down. If you tip her back once she will keep throwing her head back to do it again. I am so lucky that I get to spend so much time with her. It is amazing how much joy she brings to us everyday.

good luck with your program. I like online courses but I have a hard time staying motivated on them when I don't have a deadline. Sounds like you're motivated enough for it though. That Olivia is a crack up. I wish we were closer so we could play with her too. Thanks for the updates.

Yeah, an update. I am so proud. I LOVED all the pictures. Olivia looks like she getting so big. She is just a little chunk. I love it. I want to just squeeze her.

Good luck with your classes. I hope you can get through them pretty quickly.
