Olivia turned 10 months old a few days ago.
And she may never know that her real name is Olivia. Just the other day I was holding her and looked down and asked her, "Are you ever going to know your real name?" She shook her head no quite enthusiastically. I love that Ellie calls her "Wivvy" sometimes. "Wivvy, Wivvy, Wivvy! Come here." And she's always getting bossed around by her big sister. "Careful, Wia!" "Wia, my stuff!" But she also gets looked after. Ellie likes to make sure she has her blanket or toys. She even gets her water bottles when she notices that "Wia thirsty." Now that they share a room, whenever I go into their room in the morning Ellie likes to update me on what she's been up to. "Wia bouncing." "Wia [needs] diaper change."
And boy does Olivia cruise around. She's always poking around and into everything. Reading books and exploring toys, at least as long as she can before Ellie comes and takes it away from her. She likes to get the baskets of toys out from the little shelf in her room. The cutest thing is that she actually tries to put the baskets back when she's done.
We celebrated her first Christmas with her a few weeks ago. It's fun that she actually knows what presents are and tries to tear into the wrapping paper herself now. And apparently she strongly dislikes hats.
I just love that little girl so very much. I better get to bed so that I can be up early to snuggle her.
