Weekly Update

1:: I started giving her puffs and she loves them. I didn't realize I would have to teach her how to pick them up and put them in her mouth but I do and she is getting better. She still struggles with the release though. 2:: She will talk to me back and forth when I make noises to her. She copies my sounds. 3:: She sat up in a grocery cart this week. She wobbles a little bit but she loves being so big and looking around at everything. 4:: She is sleeping unswaddled now. It was actually a really smooth transition and she is even more of a teenager now with her arms and legs out. She does like her legs to be touching the bars of her crib which means they get stuck sometimes. Now if she would just start sleeping through the night... 5:: When she is eating and is ready for the next bite she will open her mouth and lean forward. She is the cleanest eater and doesn't make a mess at all.

Weekly Update

1:: This week was a rough one because Olive got sick for the first time. She and Taylor both were sick. She has stuffy/runny nose, a cough, and you could just tell by looking at her she wasn't feeling good. Broke my heart. 2:: She is starting to scoot a little bit. Not really, but she can go forward a tiny bit to get something she wants. She just wants to be big and crawl so bad, just can't figure it out. 3:: She is so observant lately. Always looking around and watching things. She watches cars as they drive by out the window. 4:: She sits up great now and I can mostly let her sit and play with her toys. 5:: She is wearing 6-12 month clothes now. She still wears 3-6 month pants and onesies sometimes though.

Weekly Update

1:: She rolls EVERYWHERE. I can no longer leave her on the ground because she will end up hitting her head and smashed up against a wall. 2:: She will also scoot all the way to the top of her crib so her head is smushed in the corner and cry for me to come save her. 3:: When we got home from babysitting she was SO happy Saturday morning having all the attention on her. 4:: She didn't get a bath or eat any food really the whole time we were there. Fourth child problems I guess. 5:: I need to sleep train her AGAIN. Hopefully this time will stick. I can't do anything to mess it up for a few weeks. I'm not looking forward to it.
