Olivia is now 1/2 of a year old! I'm not sure how these last 6 months have flown by so fast, but hopefully the next 6 months will slow down...but probably not!
Olivia is now right at 16.5 lbs! She is such a happy baby too. She just smiles at everyone and rarely cries. She usually only cries when she is hungry, dirty/wet, or sometimes sleepy. It is such a joy to watch her grow and learn. She really does love people watching.
Her eyes are still just so big and bright. It is really amazing!
Olivia looks so much like Matt even though some say she looks a lot like me.
This month Olivia has rolled over, but only a few times. She is also very close to sitting without support, but just not there quite yet. She does however really enjoy the jumperoo like her big sister did. She just sits and jumps and smiles (most of the time- right now she is crying, but that is b/c she is sleepy!)
Olivia loves to sleep. She sleeps probably 12+ hrs at night (with 3 feedings in there) and then takes 2 1.5 hr naps. It is wonderful. Now only if we could get Ruthie to sleep later than 6...
We will try solids again this month, but she just doesn't seem to like solids as much as momma's milk.
Olivia, We are so happy to be your momma and daddy. You and your sister just love each other so much. You love to just sit and play together and you really love laughing together! It is quite possibly the cutest thing ever! You really love your daddy and light up every time you see him. You also really love momma and sometimes no one can get you calm on the rare occasion that you are crying like momma can! You love going to nursery at church. You love going to the beach. You met your extended Stout family this month and enjoyed that too!
You are our beautiful, bright eyed Livie Loo! We love you very very much!
Now enjoy some pics from this morning!
