Olivia: 13-14 months

Olivia is 14 months and I am busier than ever chasing after our sweet little girls! Olivia started walking the first week of July (during her very first trip to the beach) at 13 months old. She is moving fast and into everything! She loves following her big sister around.

She is still a nursing champ. I've decided to let her lead the way with weaning. She isn't ready yet and we aren't ready yet. I've met some criticism about my choice to breastfeed past 12 months but honestly it doesn't bother me. I'm so proud to still be nursing her! She doesn't nurse as much as she used to. Maybe 4-5 a day now because she loves food- yogurt and cheese are her favorites along with strawberries, clementines, beans, corn, bananas, and spaghetti. She's a great eater and thoroughly enjoys mealtime.

Olivia enjoys having "conversations" with us. Sometimes I have no idea what she's saying but she's super cute saying it. She clearly says: mommy, dada, dog dog, cheese, please, bye bye, hey, and uh oh. She mimics what we say often as well.

Her favorite "trick" right now is following commands. For example, if you tell her to get a specific toy, she quickly goes to retrieve it for you and she will put an object in the trash upon request. She gets so excited when she completes it correctly.

I am enjoying every second of watching my two girls grow up and they are growing up so fast! I am so thankful to be their mommy!
