Olivia turned 9 months old yesterday! It really is unbelievable how fast the time has gone. Over the past month, Olivia's personality has developed a lot more to reveal a girl that likes to giggle and smile, an explorer, a bit of a dare-devil, and clear expressions of likes/dislikes. She loves standing and walking with our help and will protest loudly when you try to sit her down or stand her next to furniture before she's done walking. She is very interested in other babies and children to the point where she screeches and grabs at them and gives big open mouth slobber kisses. Feeding time has evolved as Olivia wants to feed herself and will sometimes refuse to be spoon fed. It's great that she will feed herself, but there are only so many finger foods one can eat with only 2 partial teeth! We celebrated as we do every month, with a photoshoot!
