Weekly Update

1:: We went to the aquarium with the kids I used to nanny. I stuck Olive up by the window and she started screaming and freaking out! I had no clue she would react that way. It took her a bit but she finally warmed up and by the end she loved standing up by the window and looking at all the fish. 2:: People are always commenting to me that she looks tired or like she just woke up. Even if she's not. 3:: She has turned into a TOTAL mama's girl. She prefers me over anyone, especially if she's sick or hurt. She always wants me for comfort. I have to say I kind of love it. 4:: She is OBSESSED with dogs. Pictures, on tv, actual dogs, doesn't matter where we are she starts whining for them and wants them. She loves when they lick her hands. 5:: We went to Bear Lake and Olive was in heaven. I couldn't take my eyes off of her because she would eat sand or stick her face in the water, but she loved playing around. Except she got an ear infection and was up for 3+ hours every night screaming. 6:: She cut her top two teeth and they are the cutest things ever. She now has 4.

Weekly Update

1:: Olive is such a snuggler and cuddler. If I say 'cuddle cuddle cuddle!' she will lay her head on my shoulder and it just melts me. 2:: She has been sleeping SO MUCH this last week. going to bed between 7 and 8 and waking up close to 9 or 9:30! Her naps haven't been as long, but no wonder since she is sleeping 14 hours! 3:: She cut her top two teeth this week! Which maybe explains the sleep but also explains why she has been a little more grouchy. 4:: We went camping this weekend and she loved it! She just crawled and climbed everywhere. We went home and slept in our own beds though. Taylor stayed and camped. 5:: She always sticks her leg out while eating in her high chair. And even in her stroller. It is so cute. She just loves to be comfy while eating!

Weekly Update

1:: Olive has started standing more on her own. Only when she doesn't realize it though. 2:: She will start watching shows, which is kind of nice when I am making dinner! 3:: I think she is growing out of her second nap, but still wants to go down two hours right when she wakes up. So it gets tricky in the afternoon. 4:: She pulls out a baby book we have each time she is in our front room and kisses all the babies on the pictures and laughs at it. I think she thinks the baby on the cover is her. 5:: We went to a parade for the 4th and it was so hot but she liked it. She haaaated the fireworks though. As long as it was in the distance she loved looking at them and pointing to them, but when they started over us she started screaming and was gripping me so tight I think she would have held on if I let go. It was also 10:00 pm so she was extra tired but we left right when they started.

Weekly Update

1:: Anytime Olive talks I will say what! In a high voice, and she started saying it around the house. She will say 'ahtt? all the time and it is the cutest thing ever. 2:: The one food I have found Olive to not be fond of is broccoli. When I give her pieces she gets this weird look on her face. I think it's a texture thing. 3:: On Sunday I was in the kitchen and I looed over and Olive was on the third stair. I walked over to see what she would do and she climbed to the top of our stairs like she'd done it a million times. I was so shocked and she was so proud! Now anytime she sees the stairs she bolts up them. So far she has such great balance, but I still need to get a baby gate. 4:: She has started standing by herself sometimes. I will notice it and once she does too she will get down, but she's getting braver. 5:: We went to bear lake for the day and she LOVED it. She wouldn't sleep on the way up, but she was actually really happy the whole day. She could have played in the dirt and water carrying her stick all day.
