Olivia's Nine Months Old

Olivia turned nine months old this past weekend. She is such a sweet content girl! She is a little talker and squealer. We have heard her say "mama" and "dada" very clearly. But we have also thought we have heard "doggie", "Grace" and "Paw Paw". She adores her sister and is tolerating more from her. I am waiting for the day that she tackles Grace. She is moving around the room but only in her six foot diameter on her bottom or inch worming it. She has pulled up to her feet a couple times but she loves pulling up on her knees with her toys. She likes standing holding on to toys, boxes, etc. She waves bye bye appropriately and claps her hands. I am just starting sign language with her. Olivia can give the best open mouth kisses. She is on almost all table foods. If she hears a bag of anything being open her mouth starts smacking. Most evening she eats two dinners. THE GIRL LOVES TO EAT! She is taking two good naps a day and is finally starting to sleep through the night. We have had three nights in a row. She went to her well baby check up today. She weighs in at 18 lbs 11oz and is 28 1/2 inches tall. She is in the 90th percentile for her height and 70th for weight. We also discovered that she has an ear infection. Bless her heart! I kind of had a feeling she did but I knew we were coming to the doctor this week so I put off going and siting the sick child room. So we are on antibiotics and hoping for no reactions with this kind.

love your blog. your girls are so gorgeous. makes me so excited to have two girls! i love your dad with that gun. awesome. my small group had another twist on the thanksgiving box. have the kids write down what they are thankful for all year long on red and green strips. then, on thanksgiving, you read them all and hook them together to make a garland for the tree.
