Watch out Phyllis Heil

You may be wondering who is Phyllis Heil?  For those of you not up to date with your current events, she is the World Whistling Champion of 2011.   Fast forward fifteen years and she's got some serious competition:  Liv Elaine Safford.  Taylor and I discovered Liv accidentally learned how to whistle.  It's the funniest thing.  She was whistling quite loudly in the grocery store the other day and this cute grandma thought she was some sort of baby genius.  I'm sure she'll grow out of it, but it does make for some interesting attention.  I've yet to catch it on video! 

As for other Liv updates, she is so close to crawling, it makes me sad.  I don't want to baby proof my house.  She just rolls and scoots everywhere she wants to go which is slow enough I can usually catch her before any major damage.  She also has two teeth on the bottom.  She can do bye-bye, but sometimes I'm not sure if she's just excited or if she really knows how to do it.  She's becoming quite the mama's girl, loves the water, and is scared of dogs (we're working on this one).  She's learned how to throw tantrums and is really good at it.  Liv's favorite food is fruit, but she also eats pretty much anything I put in front of her.  I am not super adventurous with her foods simply because I'm the one changing her diapers.  More real food = more gross diapers.  Does that make me a bad parent?  

Everyone comments on her big beautiful blue eyes.  She smiles at everyone and is constantly laughing and happy.  

She loves grass

Baby bikini: so cute yet so impractical

I was in the laundry room for 2 minutes and she's gotten into my bag from girl's camp, somehow turned on the lights and was having a ball

Her means of transportation
