We headed home on Sunday morning to have Easter Dinner with YaYa and GaGa. Olivia couldn't have been happier, she got lots of lovin from her Grandparents.
Just to recap the recent events for Olivia:
- Olivia has found a new love, sneaker (or Tennis Shoes, depending on where you were raised), laces. She loves to play with her YaYa's shoe laces, it can occupy her time for HOURS. She picks it up and swings it around.
She loves to eat, while that isn't a new thing for her, she is loud and clear when she is ready for another bite. She opens her mouth as wide as it will go and will yell to get your attention if you aren't waiting with another bite. She will eat anything you put in front of her, she is even enjoying peas and green beans more these days, no more gagging.
She is "slithering" backwards, she pushes herself backwards with her arms, one after the other and slithered herself under the couch the other day, she let me know she was stuck and I quickly rescued her, but it was hilarious.
From a sitting position she tries to propel herself forward, sometimes she gets there, other times she just teeters back and forth without making it all the way other. She is working more on the physical milestones these days, you can clearly tell that she wants to move, this is encouraging since a few weeks ago she was very content to just stick her feet in her mouth. While this is still one of her favorite pastimes, she now likes to move around, she tries to get down out of your lap while you are holding her, its cute.
Her favorite bath time activity is to stuff Duckie's head into her mouth, and you never get the Duckie away from her until she is on the changing table playing with something else, she holds on tight.
An update on her toothies...both are through the gums, but neither are making huge strides upwards, so they are just hanging out.
She is still madly in love with her Jumparoo, she is especially fond of the sounds it makes when she jumps now that Brad installed the batteries. We avoided it for as long as we could, but she was getting a little bored with it, the batteries gave it another life.
Olivia is in for a rude awakening, YaYa and GaGa are heading back to Northfield for the Spring/Summer and Early Fall, we know Olivia will miss them dearly, we are betting that YaYa gives in and comes to visit before her Birthday in July.
