Wow, Olivia is 9 months old today. She is such a happy girl. She loves to eat green beans, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes, bananas, cheese, yogurt, and chicken. She likes it when we sing to her, especially "Jesus Loves Me" and "Yellow Submarine". She has five teeth and is really making a lot of noises that sound like words. She still wakes up about once a night to be nursed, but is only up for 5-10 minutes. Olivia loves going to the nursery, playing with her toys, and is growing fond of Elmo ( I have tried to discourage this, but she really likes him). We go for our nine month check-up tomorrow so I will post her height and weight then.
UPDATE... Her check-up went great. She weighed 17 pounds 13 ounces and was 28 1/2 inches long. Her doctor kept commenting about how pretty she was. He even said that she smelled pretty. I thought that was sweet.
This is really one of her favorite things to do right now. Ella had a bucket of bugs with a net when she was a baby, this is a spider that came with it. Olivia is always putting it in her mouth. She will leave it there until so much drool is coming out around it that it falls out.
