Olivia crawled forward for the first time on March 10th at 3:45! What motivated her? Angel food cake. She's got her mommy's taste.

Nine Months Old

What Olivia is doing:
mimicking the cat's meow
mimicking dog barks "woof"
feeding herself small bites of cake, muffin or bread
experimenting with sippy cups
turning pages of her board books
starting to pull up on furniture
still crawling backwards and in circles
growing a second tooth with two more not far behind
breaking wine glasses and calling dogs across town with her super-sonic, high-pitched squeals

What Olivia likes:
walks through the neighborhood
lots of tickling
story time
mommy's oatmeal cake
shopping with daddy at the grocery store
mirrors and pictures of dogs

What Olivia dislikes:
teething and Baby Orajel
getting strapped into her car seat
having her hands and arms manipulated
getting her face cleaned
