One Month Older!

Olivia turned 8 months old yesterday! WOW. I cannot believe it.

In the last month I think that she has really grown and changed a lot! She is developing such a little personality now. She is such a sweet baby and just goes with the flow!

Olivia is starting to put a little meat on her skinny little bones! Her legs are filling out and so are her cheeks!

She is wearing a size 3 diaper

She is in size 6-9 month clothing most of the time. If it wasn’t her for length, I am sure that she would still be in a size 6 month.

She wears a size 2 shoe.

She is an eating machine. She loves rice and oatmeal. She east 3-4 times per day. Rice with veggies or oatmeal with fruit. She eats meat about once a day…chicken or turkey with rice. She seems to really enjoy that too!

It seems like she has been teething…but nothing has popped though yet. She is constantly chewing on things and drooling. Blake didn’t get his first tooth until 10.5 months…so we shall see!!

Her hair is getting thicker. Still very straight.

He is a laughing machine. Just gets cracking up and it is SO cute! Blake makes her laugh the most.

She does a great job at daycare and just LOVES her friends there. She about jumps out of my arms when I take her there in the a.m.

She has started to sleep through the night (sometimes)…I don’t want to jinx this, but be is getting better and better!

She is trying to get into crawling position….but can’t quite get there. She is a rolling machine! Can get anywhere she wants in no time at all.

Blake turned 2 years, 8 months on Saturday.

I am having a hard time grasping that I will have a THREE year old in just 4 short months. Where did these past 3 years go?!

Although I love Blake more than life, I think that he is in that terrible 2 stage. One minute he is the sweetest little love-bug. The next minute he is so defiant. I think that he is really testing his limits.

He is SO extremely smart. Too smart for his own good in fact. He knows how to work everyone!
He will be moving up to the Tike room at school next week. I think that he has been ready for this move for some time now. This is a big move….and it means potty training. I pray that this is a somewhat easy transition. He acts like he isn’t interested now, but I think that he really just doesn’t want to stop and take the time to pee on the potty.

His vocabulary is so huge. Sometimes I am blown away by the stuff that comes out of his mouth. He retains EVERYTHING like a sponge. You have to be very careful what you say around him….because he will remember it, no doubt!

As of now he is in a size 4 diaper…but hopefully underpants soon!

He is not a big eater. Never has been.

He is tall and skinny. Could wear size 18 mo. shorts….but wears 2T or 3T in everything else because of his height.

Wears a size 7 shoe…but just bought an 8 in the latest (although I think that they are too big….he told me that the 7’s were “too tight mama”).

Blake has the thickest blonde hair ever! It has the prefect amount of wave to it….he is overdue for a haircut, but I can’t bring myself to get it cut off!

I just love this kid to the moon and back…but for our sanity, I hope that these terrible two’s are over soon!!

They are just too sweet! Sounds like Olivia will be crawling very soon!! Aren't baby laughs the BEST?! Hopefully potty training will come easy for y'all. It was actually a lot less stressful than I thought it would be with Riley. Good luck!

Oh my goodness, I barely recognized Olivia! I can't believe she's 8 months old already!

They look so much alike to me!

She is growing so fast. I bet she will be crawling before you know it!

I hope potty training comes easy for you guys once y'all start up!!
