Olivia is 9 months old

Olivia turned 9 months old about a week ago. She is just so calm and laid back (not anything like Ruthie). She laughs and plays and likes to snuggle too! Check out her pictures first:

excited to be sisters!


where did that sister go?!?

Olivia is now 16.5 lbs and 26.75 inches long. That is just 12 lbs smaller than her sister and only 1/2 foot shorter. crazy!
She learned this month to get what she wants. She isn't crawling really, but she will reach and reach until she gets what she wants or if she can't get it will just sit back up.
Olivia is coming into her personality. She is calm, cool, and collected, but is also having some separation anxiety with momma.
She is sleeping about 10.5 to 11 hrs a night and taking two 1.5 hr naps a day. She is still breast feeding 4 to 5 times a day and according to the dr. she needs to be eating more solids. We were feeding her 1 to 2 containers of solids and 1 to 2 tbl of cereal a day. Turns out we should be feeding her at least one more container a day and one less breast feeding a day. YAY and an AMEN! less breast feeding means more freedom. I'm not saying I don't love those sweet times, but if you have or do breast feed you probably know what I mean.
Olivia really didn't do much more this month, but she sure is still getting lots of compliments on those big bright eyes and her sweet personality. As for now, we are enjoying watching the girls grow in love for one another!
Olivia loves squash the most of all the foods, but she likes to eat all of it! There's nothing that this girl will turn down. She will also put anything in her mouth including all kinds of paper.

Now for some fun pics from the last month of the girls!

my silly girl getting ready for pee schoo (pre-school for those who don't read/speak Ruthie)

found Ruthie in bed, just reading to herself one afternoon- she takes after her daddy

She's so precious and seems to be looking more like Ruthie now. It's hard to believe she's 9 months old already, right? Time goes so very fast. Love their little outfits from Gigi and girl - I was in line on like day 3 of starbucks having out their pumpkin lattes (yum!). Enjoyed seeing all the pictures.
