Lee Shelton IV said...

She's so cute I can't even stand it!

Yeah, I'm a little biased. You got a problem with that?

Greg's Wife said...

She's so, so sweet! How's she sleeping, eating, adjusting overall? She looks JUST GREAT! I love her happy face in that last pic. Y'all must spend hours just staring at her...

Greg's Wife said...

Oh, and I'm dying to know if you've taken her to church yet!

Lee Shelton IV said...

We're all adjusting very well. Olivia is happy and playful and is getting used to our dogs. She still prefers to keep Mom and Dad in sight, but she's beginning to crawl and explore on her own. We're planning on taking her to church this weekend.

Hey - that duckini looks strangely familiar...I love all the firsts! Can you believe it?

I think Target was our first official outting. Sad - haha.

Soo cute! Her smiles when she is with mama are precious. I do think mama should take pictures of Olivia with her papa :) So much cuteness in one little person!

You got to celebrate your birthday in China, collecting your little girl?! What an amazing birthday present!

She looks so happy in all of those pictures (except with the grass lol My littlest one hates grass, too.) She must be adjusting well. :)

Bill and Christina said...

Oh my goodness she is so adorable!

Dan and Karen said...

Beautiful pictures! Good for you for blogging already!

I agree with Lee, she's so cute I can't stand it!!!! (And I don't have a problem with that) :-))

Target was our first official outing too, Grandma and Grandpa drove us in their motorhome since Danika freaked out in her car seat every time when we first came home. (Grandpa doesn't think car seats are necessary so he would tote her anywhere in his motorhome without a car seat!)

So very happy to see you guys home with your precious Olivia!
