I've been having a little trouble coming up with a good blog name for our summer sweetie. I finally hit on Olivia from the Great Mouse Detective. Then I wasn't sure if I should use it since the style doesn't really match- doesn't sound like a Disney name, and it's such a popular name right now that we might have an actual Olivia at some point. But madness lies down the road of second guessing everything, and that little mouse girl is SO cute and I think her personality really matches so there you have it. Olivia she is.
Olivia is extremely shy if she thinks you're looking at her performance or might be about to comment on it. If you look right at her and say hi, she usually drops to the floor and hides her face, peeking out from between her fingers every now and then. It took her over a week to get used to circle time, but now that she's got the routine down, she's right up in my lap with everybody else singing on our story glove. It's pretty cute.
She's fairly petite, but eats like a truck driver who's been on the road three days straight. It's comical. I don't know where she puts it all. I do know that I would dearly love to have her metabolism.
She's a great snuggler and spends lots of time in our laps.
And she has no problem giving us the serious face if she doesn't approve of our silliness.
Sad we only get her for the summer, but it's been so nice to have her!
