Olivia - 6 months

Olivia is growing so fast! Here are some pictures I took of her this month. She is sitting, but not for long, she dives forward and starts to crawl toward something she wants. The top picture was pure luck. Once she found her shoes, she chewed and gnawed on them like crazy!

She's started exploring now, too. Instead of me being able to put her down in the middle of the floor with a toy, she's now quickly propelling herself to the perimeters of the room, finding electrical cords, cat food, and anything else that she's not supposed to have.

Her tastes in food have broadened a bit - she now likes oatmeal, squash and carrots, too. She is getting better with Cheerios, and tries to pick them up to feed herself. It's comical, though, because she gets it inside her fist, and then, because she can't see it, thinks it's gone, so she lets go to get another one. Cheap entertainment!

Her sleeping habits are still hit or miss. Last night, she went to bed at 8 p.m., but was in my bed by midnight. She didn't sleep peacefully after that, which meant I didn't either. The night before, she slept in her bed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. - I could do that every night...why can't she?

She is still a very happy baby. She flirts with anyone who looks at her, and her laugh is contagious. Abigail fascinates her - although lately Abigail seems less interested in Olivia.

She has started having her own ideas - wanting things she can't have, and spins like a top in my arms looking for the remote control, the phone, or my glass of tea.

She doesn't have any teeth yet, and there are no signs of them popping up in the near future. I don't see anything when I look at her gums, and she hasn't seemed to feel sickly at all. I am not in a hurry for her teeth to come in - I am still enjoying her being my baby! I am afraid that when the teeth come in, she'll start to look like a little girl!
