The girlies turned another month older on Saturday, and are now only 2 months away from being 1 year old! AHHHHH!!!!!
Here's a brief rundown of what's new with our 10 month olds =)
Miss Olivia - aka "Baby A"
Nicknames: Livvy, Liv, Livvy girl, Peanut
Favorite activity: Taking things off of shelves, out of baskets, and off of tables and scattering them on the floor around her. Also, playing with helium inflated balloons. SO cool!
Mobility: She has moved on from rolling to crawling full speed ahead! Man she is fast! She has also learned how to pull herself up on furniture (and people). She tries to take unassisted steps, but has a bad habit of falling on her face (and consequently screaming bloody murder)
Favorite food: Pancakes, peaches, bagels, and pear juice (50/50 with water of course). And whatever else mommy and daddy are eating =)
Personality: Loves people (a daddy trait)! Full of smiles (a mommy trait). Loves to watch what is going on around her. Soaks everything in. Has a bit of a temper, and occasionally bullies her sister, pulls hair, and tries to take her toys. Scared of older men and anyone with gray hair, other than Aunt Denise (LOL).
Favorite Person: Usually Daddy, but Papa Ken will give him a run for his money!
Words: Da-da, hey, yep
Miss Brianna - aka "Baby B"
Nicknames: Bri, Bri baby, Peanut
Favorite activity: Sitting in the front entry way looking outside; closely followed by banging on pots in the kitchen and playing with plastic hangers
Mobility: Crawling everywhere, and easily pulling herself up on furniture or people. She has also been working on cruising the furniture. Watch out world, here comes Bri!
Favorite food: Pancakes are by far her favorite! She also enjoys bagels, sweet potatoes, and DQ vanilla soft serve (shhh - so does Livvy!)
Personality: Reserved. Will smile at you, but has to warm up to you first. Likes to be active and moving (a mommy trait =)). Has a bit of an ornery streak (a daddy trait). Has a knack for getting into whatever she isn't supposed to be getting in to. If you tell her no, she will acknowledge you, then do it anyway, and laugh. I kid you not. Little bugger!
Favorite Person: Usually Mommy, but Aunt Denise is pretty darn cool too!
Words: Da-da, Ma-Ma (although only occasionally on purpose), yep
Holy buckets! I can see them turning from babies into little ladies, right before my very eyes! So bittersweet! I can't believe it is possible to love someone so little SO much! I absolutely don't know what we would do without them. They are definitely the lights of our lives =).
Until next time -
