Weekly Update

1:: Olive spent the week at Nana's house while we were out of town. I'm sure she loved getting so much attention all week. She liked eating popsicles with my dad too.  2:: She kept her busy and climbed up 4 stairs! 3:: She loved going over to my mom's shelves, and knew she wasn't supposed to. So she would just stare at my mom like a stinker. 4:: She loves uncle Jax now and he has really warmed up to her too. 5:: She did not love the drive down to st george and cried most of the way. Jaxson didn't want to touch her slobbery hands so he would put food on her shirt and she had to grab it and feed herself.

Ten Months Old

At 10 months Olive:
-Is everywhere, and is so fast!
-Crawls like a champ, doesn't really scoot every anymore.
-Is bald as can be. Although she has a few wisps of hair on top that are actually pretty long.
-Is pulling up onto everything.
-Loves brushing her teeth.
-Tries to copy the sounds I make, just not my words.
-Has said mama and dada, but won't say it when we ask her to anymore.
-Loves being outside, I can't wait to take her swimming this month.
-Loves reading books and can flip pages herself. She points at the pages with her two fingers.
-Is sleeping so great, hopefully we are done with the bad sleeping from now on!
-Takes two naps every day.
-Is good in the car still.
-Can play by herself and keep herself happy.
-Is still a good eater, but is more interested in what we are eating so I just give her pieces of our dinners.
-If it's on the floor she will eat it.
-Is starting to like her stuffed animal elephant.
-Will let me know she is tired by digging her head into her softie or stuffed animals.
-Has been falling asleep on her own the past week after drinking her bottle.
-Is being weaned and is doing really well. It's been a better transition than I thought.
-Loves kids of any age as long as they pay attention to her.
-Loves her dad most but is a mama's girl too.

-Won't say many real words but talks all the time.
-Still only has two teeth but I swear she is getting her tops.
-Loves to be in the bath.
-Eats her shoes when they're on her feet.
-When you tell her to come to you she will crawl right at you and at the last minute dart right past you.
-Most of the time she ends up turned all the way around in her crib. Crazy sleeper.
-Still wears size 4 diapers, and I think she hit a growth spurt this month.
-Is really good at playing by herself and occupying herself with her toys. And everything that is not a toy that she can find.

Loves: Eating, standing, books, singing, dancing, playing outside, getting chased by dad.

Doesn't like: getting her eyes wiped, being tired.

Weekly Update

1:: Olive is pulling up on everything now. She can get all the way standing on most things, and is pretty good at balancing. She hasn't fallen and hit her head yet, I'm always worried about that. 2:: She still is not interested in walking. At all. She won't even walk holding onto furniture or my hands. 3:: She shakes and bounces when she hears Justing Timberlake's new song 'I Got This Feeling' come on. She waves her hand in the air. It's adorable. 4:: I am weaning her this week because I am going out of town. She is actually doing really great at it and is sleeping through the night and napping great. It's making it easier to feel like I made the right decision. 5:: She loves drinking out of real cups like a big girl and using straws. She is surprisingly really good at doing both!

Weekly Update

1:: Olive thinks it's so funny when I click my tongue. 2:: She also laughs when she sees a picture of herself on my phone. 3:: We nannied a family this week and she was the worst sleeper. She woke up a bunch, wouldn't go down, and wouldn't take naps. I had to drive her around to get her to sleep. 4:: So I took her to my in-law's house down the street for naps and nighttime and slept there. She slept amazing in their pitch black theater room. 5:: She wanted to destroy every last thing in that house, I had to keep my eye on her. She also kept slipping and hitting her head on the hardwood floors. Yikes.

Weekly Update

1:: Olive cries so hard every time Ivy sings like Ariel. It is so hilarious. 2:: She is standing up on everything lately. We had to lower her crib and she can kneel but can't quite stand up so we are good at least for now. 3:: All the sudden she is a giant next to baby Jack. How did she get so big so fast?? 4:: She practically will play catch by rolling a ball back and forth with you. 5:: She is starting to take really good morning naps, like 2 hours! It is awesome. Except on Sundays. I still don't know what to do there. Taylor or I stay home while she sleeps. We should probably tough it out and take her to church but she just gets soo ornery.
