Olivia now cries maybe 2 minutes after I walk out, then she talks and sings for awhile. She may gripe a little and cry another 5 minutes before she finally gives it up, but then she lays right down and goes to sleep. Go figure! Our little drama queen is handling it well. Abby? Not so much…she will cry the entire time, big sobbing cries. She has not really cared about a blanket but after last week she has latched onto them. She would stand or sit in her crib biting it while she cried. It would be soaked when we would go in. Heartbreaking…so we are taking a break with her. After I lay Olivia down I hold Abby until she goes to sleep. Then she naps in a pack and play in our bedroom. It is not perfect but it is what works at this stage for us.
Now onto the fun stuff -
I am so flippin’ busy these days. They are into everything. I mean…eve.ry.THANG! I turned my back for a second (I swear it was only second) and Olivia was up the first flight of stairs and around the corner to the second. Whoopsie! And Zachary totally told on me as soon as Gary walked in the door.
Ok back to the fun stuff…They are both holding their bottles and have been for over a month now. Oh, how great this is.
They both are cruising around the couch and other things by holding onto them. Abby has actually let go and attempted to take a step. EEeekk!! Olivia can stand still for a bit but then falls. Abby is now in her big girl car seat. She also pushes her car toys around and makes car noises. Brooooommmm broom brrrrrmmmm. Hilarious! Both her and Olivia LOVE to blow raspberries.
Abby is now very attached to her doll. She drags it as she is crawling around. And don’t you DARE try to hold it and love it yourself. Olivia has one too but most of the time Abby has both.
Olivia is still attached to her silky blanket.
Olivia has also figured out how to play peek-a-boo. For a week or so she would slap her hand on the side of her head when she wanted to play.
I so meant to get a picture of it then she stopped. :-(
They fight over toys. All.the.time. Everyday…all day. There are tears, people. And screeching and pulling and gnashing of teeth. I imagined two girls who would be the best of friends. ::sigh:: Hopefully this is just a stage. Stop laughing, it's not nice.
And now I think this has driveled on long enough. So there you have it…
