9 Months Old

Our little one is not so little anymore... she is 9 months old today! Olivia has grown and changed so much in the last month and is turning into a sweet little girl. I can't even call her a baby anymore when she is almost walking, saying 'mama', and growing like a weed. The past month has been busy with summer activities, a family vacation to Park City, lots of learning and growing milestones, and tons of fun along the way. 

Olivia is a quick crawler, stands on her own, and took her first few steps a few days ago. It will be no time before she is walking on her own, but for now she has figured out that crawling is a much quicker form of baby transportation. She loves eating her baby food and still favors anything with squash or banana in it. We tried avocado this past week and she hated it... just like her momma! 

This past month has also brought teething and separation anxiety... two things that are not enjoyable! Olivia has yet to pop a tooth, but has all the signs that it could happen any day. And the separation anxiety is hard... no other way to describe it... Olivia cries when I leave the room and has been extra clingy lately. I do hope this stage will pass.... soon!

Here are a few pictures of Olivia in her 9 month onesie this morning... smiles were hard to come by, but she is adorable anyways...

And since it has been awhile since I have posted on our blog (sorry!), here a few pictures from our summer adventures...

This summer has been a blast for our family and we have created so many amazing memories. We are so blessed to have such amazing and supportive families and a beautiful daughter to show the world. I love you Olivia and love the little girl you are becoming... this life will be an adventure!
