Olive's Coming Out Party

For Olive's 40 week birthday we decided to have a big party.  Thankfully my mom and Andrew's mom came early to help set everything up.  I couldn't have done it without them!

We had a great turn out with about 40 people!  Who knew Olive was so popular??

Daddy and Grandpa Dan manned our new grill and made Hamburgers, Veggie Burgers, and Hot Dogs. Even though I only had 2 bites of the burger - it was delicious!

It was the perfect day for swimming - although neither Andrew, Olive, or I got in!  With that being said I don't think our pool has ever had that many people in it at one time.  There were kids and babies everywhere!

Thank you to everyone who came and made Olive's special day so much fun.  And for those of you who couldn't make it - you can always make it up to her later.

Olive even had her first taste of a yummy cupcake.  I don't think daddy was too happy about it - even though he made them!  Happy 40 weeks to my sweet, sweet baby.  Mommy and daddy love you more than anything.

Glamour Shot - 41 Weeks

Olive Harper Cahn - 41 Weeks

Olive's Turns 40 (Well....41 to be Exact)

Today is Olive's 40 week birthday party.  Daddy has a crazy theory that it is far more important than her 1st year birthday.  Basically this party marks her being outside longer than she was inside me!  In case anyone wondered why there was a lack of blog entries this week - blame it on the party.  I promise to take lots of pictures of the guest of honor and post them soon.

Daddy's Computer Dies

For the second time - daddy's computer has kicked the bucket.  The good news is that it's currently at the Apple store getting fixed for free.  The bad news is that there are 3 amazing videos of Olive that Andrew was going to send me for the blog.  Please stand by.

Olive Goes to the Beach

Yesterday Olive and I headed over to Oliver's house so we could enjoy a day at the beach with some other babies.

The weather was gorgeous and Jen had the perfect umbrella so there was plenty of shade for the little ones.

Oliver was pretty happy to see his girlfriend - it had been awhile since they had seen each other!

We met a new friend too!  His name is Beau and he is as cute as can be!

It had been even longer since we had last seen Sabrina.  She is getting so big!

Olive's Kindermusik buddy, Alex, was there too!  All the babies enjoyed a fun day at the beach.  Olive even had her first taste of sand.

Thursday Night Date Night

Last thursday night Lotus and Tony invited us to the Soho House for dinner and the movie CRAZY STUPID LOVE.  Unfortunately they don't allow cameras inside so I couldn't take any pictures.  Thankfully they have a photo booth so we took more than our fair share!

The food was delicious and I loved the movie.  Nothing beats a little Ryan Gosling to brighten a girls day.  I even ran into an old friend from high school!  How crazy is that?

New Tooth

I should have realized from the sleepless nights that something was going on with little Olive.  A few days ago I noticed a little white area on her gums.

She's finally getting a top tooth!

Constant Construction

I'm not sure what it is about me, but I'm always wanting to fix up our house.  Our newest project - the backyard.  A few weeks ago we decided to install a new deck since our old one was pretty beat up and caused water to seep under our sliding glass doors.  We also wanted more room for people to sit since we love having parties in the summer.  We hardly ever use our grassy area in the back so we thought putting another deck there would be a good idea!

We opted for Trex - an outside wood composite material.  The good thing about it is that it requires no maintenance and resists staining.  However, it takes a whole lot of elbow grease to get clean! Now that we had gorgeous new decks, we needed new outdoor furniture to go with it.  As an early birthday present for Andrew - his parents got him an amazing new Weber gas grill and my mom got him new loungers, chairs, and an umbrella. Thanks everyone for making our backyard look fantastic!

Olive Goes Bowling

Sunday afternoon we met Uncle Shawn and Uncle Austin at the bowling alley to play a few games.  Olive had never been before and was mesmerized by everything.

It had been awhile since we had seen Shawn and Austin so it was nice to finally get together.  Shawn and I went head to head our first game.  I ended up with a Turkey in the 10th frame but we still tied!  149 to 149 - pretty good for having not bowled in 2 years!  Unfortunately I didn't do as well my second game.

As you can see - Olive was showing off her new skills.  She clapped every time daddy or I would bowl.  She seriously is the cutest little baby ever.
