Weekly Update

1:: We went to St. George this week and Olive did amazing in the car! She didn't take an afternoon nap so I was worried she would be bad, but she only started fussing when we got to Cedar City because she was tired. 2:: She loves to swim so much. And she splashes her hands on the water. 3:: She is totally happy playing outside on a blanket, but she is constantly trying to crawl to the grass. 4:: Whenever she sees a kid or baby she makes this weird crying noise because she wants them. Almost like she wants them to pick her up. It kind of scares the bigger kid. We need to work on that. 5:: She started saying da da this week. She has never said it to Taylor in person, but she first said it while we were facetiming him in St. George. She says it all the time for me, just not for him.

Nine Months Old

At nine months Olive:
-Is EVERYWHERE. She is constantly moving around. She can crawl, but mostly chooses to scoot around.
-Is starting to pull up on things.
-Sleeps well at night, usually 12-13 hours with one feeding somewhere in there. Usually early morning.
-Is a little vacuum and finds every last thing on our floors and it goes directly into her mouth.
-Has a little personality and sense of humor and it is the best.
-Said 'da da'
-Can do so big, wave, shake her head no, do a sniffing scrunch face, peek a boo, talk back to you.
-Doesn't do many of her tricks anymore because you want her to.
-Loves all food, especially what mom and dad are eating.
-Drinks out of a cup like a champ, loves straws too if I pour it into her mouth. She can't suck a straw yet.
-Loves dad and mom the best, but is good with strangers and other people again. I think the stranger danger is mostly gone.
-Has two little teeth, with more on the way I think.
-Got an adhesion down there so I have to apply an estrogen hormone to help it.
-Is still bald as can be, but has these wispy hairs on top that are somehow so hard to manage.
-Loves the bath time and the pool.
-Could spend all day every day outside.
-Is good at occupying herself and loves her pink elephant electronic toy.
-Always goes for the remote, cords, plugs, and cellphones. Along with everything else she shouldn't play with.
-Isn't too interested in walking when I'm holding her hands. She would fall before she moved her feet.
-Does this weird whiny thing when she sees another kid because she is excited to see them and it's like she wants them to pick her up.
-She's like my little puppy and follows me all around the house.
-Has so many toys but they don't keep her attention for long anymore. She wants to move into other rooms.
-Weighs 20 lbs 4 oz (81%), 29 in tall (92%), 18 in head (91%). She's growing into her head! : )

Loves: food, mom and dad, being outside, running errands and sitting in the cart, other kids, playing peek a boo, standing up on things.
Hates: Ivy singing, being tired, not being able to get what she wants, the sun shining in her face in the car or stroller.
