Summer is flying by fast and it has been so hot here! Olivia is not slowing down at all and growing like a weed. It's hard to believe she is 8 months old today because she already acts so grown up. She is crawling a ton and is getting pretty fast, can hold onto the edge of the couch and walk a few feet, loves to eat her baby food purees and puffs, still isn't sleeping through the night, and has uttered a few sounds that are close to mama and dada. I love this age where she interacts with us, has a smile that melts my heart, and loves to explore. Our summer so far has included lots of swimming, plenty of walks to the park and around the neighborhood, lots of baseball games, and spending lots of time with family. Olivia absolutely loved her swimming lessons and is a total water baby! She has also mastered picking up her baby food snacks and making it to her mouth most of the time. Sleep and napping is questionable on most days and nights and I have really begun to think that our child is just one that doesn't need much sleep... completely opposite of her mother :(
Here are a few pictures of Olivia in her 8 month onesie this morning... enjoy!

To my sweet Olivia... I could have never imagined that the days with you could get any more fun. I love seeing you grow and learn and can't wait for the journey ahead of us... love you munchkin!
