The Monthly Ollie: Volume 7

***Friends and family who are wanting these Ollie updates can look over to the right of this post and find a way to input your email to receive blog updates through email instead of social media or just happening upon the blog.***


Ollie’s seventh month has been a month of trying new things.

This month has been full of new adventures. The biggest new event in our life is that Ollie is eating (actual) food! She loves most of it and dramatically lets us know what she doesn’t enjoy. Other new adventures include Ollie’s first stay at Spontaneity Kid Care, watercolor painting, and sitting in the front of the cart while grocery shopping. She is growing very quickly and we expect that she will be on the move soon!

Ollie is a busy, funny, and sassy little 7 month old. We are extremely blessed parents.

Month 7  Mom & Dad Stuff 

We can’t wrap our minds around being the parents of a seven month old!

We enjoy talking with her.

We love introducing her to activities we enjoy (She started painting with Mommy).

We love sitting on the floor and playing with her and her toys.

We are excited to introduce new foods to her.

We enjoy parenting a screeching pterodactyl.

We never get tired of seeing her smile.

We love that she rolls wherever she needs to go, but makes us anxious sometimes.

We are still not sorry for becoming the parents who flood newsfeeds with pictures of their baby…

We love trying to help her crawl (Daddy has started “Daddy Crawl Camp” in the evenings).

We are always learning more about her personality.

We love time with just the three of us.

We are excited to watch our baby grow and develop into a more independent and sassy little being.

We are THANKFUL for all of the encouragement, prayers, assistance, and visits from our wonderful friends and family over the last month.


It has been a great month for Ollie and a great month at the Cavin house. If you are on Facebook or Instagram you can follow our adventures regularly by looking for #olliejujubee.

Until next time,

Mrs. Cavin
