Sitting up and other amazing baby feats!

Of course I am behind on posting, big surprise there.  Anyway, Olivia has been sitting up on her own for a while now.  She started really sitting up on her own just after she turned 6 months. She will sit on her blankie on the floor and play with her toys for a long time, she is much more self-entertained than Abby ever was.  I don't know if this is due to the fact that she has to be since Im not able to give her as much one on one time or due to her personality...most likely a combination of the two!  She is also able to find her paci in the crib (I put it in the corner when she goes to sleep) and pop it in her mouth all by herself.  Its so cute to walk into her room in the morning and see her sucking away on her paci like Maggie Simpson with a big smile on her face! She has learned to cluck, and is very proud of the sound she can make.  She is also really discovering her voice just in time for our plane ride to Colorado next week.  She will just yell at the top of her lungs just to hear herself, she thinks its funny...the people lucky enough to sit next to us on the airplane, probably not so much!

 I don't think she is too close to crawling, mostly due to the fact that she does not really like to be on her tummy.  I try to put her on her belly for a while but after a few minutes she rolls over onto her back or just screams till I sit her back up.  She is able to lift her little bum in the air and scoot a little bit if there is something she REALLY wants to get to and its usually something she shouldn't have.  A favorite of hers right now is paper, it tastes so good.  I am in no hurry for her to crawl, I think its nice that she stays put.  When she becomes mobile I will really have to be on my toes, especially with all the little toys that Abby has lying around.  I may have to invest in one of those gigantic baby gates, or as I like to call them, baby jails!

Olivia has also been trying a few "solids" here and there.  She really like nawing on a cucumber under strict supervision of course.  The biter biscuits or "zweedlebutt" as Andrew and I call it, isn't the biggest hit.  I keep giving it to her hoping she will start to like it because that was the only way Andrew and I were able to go out to dinner with Abby for a while because it kept her entertained for so long.  I have tried giving her puffs a few times too (again one of Abby's favorites, in fact she still eats them) but Olivia isn't a hug fan.  She mostly just plays with them.
