Olivia {8 Months}

Love seeing all the personality coming out of this sweet girl.
Seriously, there is just so much personality going on!

She can be feisty at times, but most of the time, she is all smiles and pure joy!
Brother continues to make her laugh more than anybody else can, and she just loves playing with Jack. They chase each other around the house and she just giggles and giggles.
She is determined to be a big girl, and I think she'll be walking at 10 months. Already she is letting go while holding onto something and is able to keep her balance for about 3-5 seconds.
Sweet baby girl, please stay a baby just a little bit longer...

Livvie is still very vocal and her growls are still one of her favorite sounds to make.
But her new sound is going 'la, la, la, la, la.'
It is seriously adorable.
I don't know if she is trying to sing or if she's trying to say her name.
But this girl loves music and every time it comes on she busts a move and kicks her legs and shakes her butt.
Seriously, I die.
Sleep was bit rough at night this month, and she went through a 1-2 week period where she was waking every few hours at night.
Thankfully that got resolved and she is pretty much back to sleeping from 7pm-6am (sometimes as early as 5am...or 4:45am...ugh), waking usually just once around 2/3am.
Her naps are pretty consistent from 9:30-11 and 2-3:30.
Feeding her solids has become much easier, and she no longer grabs for the spoon. However, she really isn't that into food (or the bottle), and I fear this girl is going to be hard to wean from nursing.
She mostly eats yogurt (her favorite), sweet potatoes, apple sauce, pears, and bananas. Greens are a no go...
Usually she'll have a yogurt with some oatmeal cereal mixed in for breakfast, and for her second/third feeding, she'll have fruit and veggies mixed with cereal (about 2-4 ounces).
She loves puffs and cheerios, and I really do think she just wants to feed herself, so I should probably just bite the bullet and give her mashed/soft foods.
