Life with Olivia at 11 months

Unbelievable, right? We are quickly approaching Liv's first birthday, in which these monthly updates will come to a close. Don't worry- she plays a major role in the story that is the deMars family- so it won't be the last you hear of her. Anyhow, I hope these updates have helped you feel like you know Olivia- she's truly a girl worth knowing.

I really should title this post- Little Miss Foodie. Livie loves food! All food! She only has the two bottom teeth, but she can gum away at just about anything you put in front of her. In fact, she's starting to get pissed off if her food is too pureed. She also gets pissed off if she sees you eating and you're not sharing! She seems to be a bottomless pit. She can eat an entire pear, then an entire banana- and still want more! It's truly remarkable. In the mornings, I used to scramble up 4 eggs for Gavin, Livie, and me. Now- I have to scramble 5 because Liv puts down as much food as me! Keep in mind, she weighs just a little over 20 pounds! It's pretty ridiculous.

In terms of milestones, she's still just crawling like a mad woman. She is starting to test the waters of standing alone, but basically just falls down and resumes crawling. Now that the weather is warm, we spend most of our days outside. She doesn't love the swimming pool, but I think she'll start to like it as the summer progresses. We spend the late afternoons out on a blanket, under the maple trees. It's relaxing and fun to watch the kids snuggle and play with their toys. Of course, due to her obsession with eating- I have to watch her closely, as she is willing to eat grass, rocks, and the like.

Not too much else to add this month- she continues to overwhelm us with her cuteness and sweet nature. Here are a few pics from the last month.
 
Ok, what're we eatin' here?

she is such a sweetie! Sad to have these updates coming to an end- you should keep them semi-regularly...like every 4 mo or something. She is such a little darling!
