9 months

Sweet Olivia. You have a new “word” nah nah. It’s how you get my attention so looks like I am going to be nah nah for a while. Maybe even forever. Last night at the supper table you were trying to get my attention so badly that you started screeching nah nah so loud we all stopped talking and looked at you. Your screech was so intense we thought something was wrong but just as soon as I looked at you and asked “what?” you started cheesing it up. We think know that you are a little lot spoiled. And an attention hog.

You have officially started cruising and can stand for about 15 seconds with out holding on to anything. You try and talk so hard to us and already have so many different sounds when you talk. You get very intense about things and will study something hard and then turn and look at me and try your best to talk about what you just saw. You have two teeth and there is no food that you wont eat. Well, except for yogurt but only because it’s cold. You’re not a fan of cold stuff yet.

You love to stand at the window and talk to the world out side. You love to tear all the magazines to shreds and you love trying to find ways to escape the barricade I had to create in the living room to contain you. You’ve already gotten stuck between the couch and playpen twice and you got stuck on a table. You dance at the music from your piano and start talking really loud when it comes on. Sometimes you talk really loud when I am rocking you to sleep and I have begun to think that you are trying to sing when you do this.

My absolute favorite thing that you do though is play hide and seek with me. For instance, you will be in your bed crying your eyes out (not really because you rarely have tears) like the whole world is crashing in upon you and the moment I open the door and you see my face, you take a nose dive for the corner of your bed, hide your face, and pull it up slowly to look at me with a big grin and then you find the corner again. You definitely have a little whit about you already. You think so many things are funny and if we laugh at something you do, you laugh and do it again to make us laugh some more. If my predictions are correct, you will be our little clown.

James and Audrey still think you are the cats meow and love to entertain you and play with you and just everything about you. James loves to get in your face and make funny faces and you most always laugh at him. Audrey is still obsessed with your feet. And I do mean obsessed. She told me the other day that if she could, she would cute your feet off and eat them because they are so yummy. Wowza.

I never cease to be amazed at how a child/children come from the SAME gene pool and have such unique personalities. That's God. I love how James and Audrey are her "keepers" and adorers. I love the photos of 'liv's beginning movements. She is as adorable as the twins but so uniquely her own little person. Enjoyed the post, 'manda. God bless you all DAILY.
