10 Months

Isn’t she seriously the cutest 10 month old ever!?
Even with her crazy hair?!
I just keep hoping that her hair will soon grow long enough that it either lays down on its own or can fit into pigtails…because seriously, that hair is out of control.

Facts and tidbits about Olivia at 10 months old:
*7 teeth…4 on top, 3 on bottom
*too chicken to stand solo for more than 2 seconds
*walks along furniture/walls/whatever like a pro
*says Mama and baba, but will never perform on demand
*claps without abandon
*attempts to wave on occasion, but never when I ask her to
*smiles more for her daddy than for her mommy
*has perfected the fake whine, with accompanying “pathetic” face and will do this whenever she wants something but cannot communicate to you what that something is
*still sleeps like a champ and will take 2-3 naps per day and sleeps 12+ hours at night uninterrupted
*eats pretty much whatever she is given, be it bottle, jarred baby food, or “people food” off our plates (though she didn’t seem to care for the steamed broccoli TJ offered her the other day)
*at her 9 month check up, she was around 75% for height and 25% for weight (so very different from her brother!)…she’s currently wearing 9-12 month clothing, mainly 12mo tops and 9mo bottoms

Olivia is generally a happy baby.
Always smiling, often just chattering away to whomever will listen to her.
But sometimes, like when I try to get her to sit still for 2 minutes so I can take a picture of her, this happens:

But hey, it’s her 10 month birthday and she can cry if she wants to.
(she’s still cute, though…even when in hysterics)
