No, I'm not talking about the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) that you give your kid when they have diarrhea. I'm talking about my daughter. In the last couple of months she has really started to show her true colors, if you will. While the majority of the time she is a wonderfully happy child, and is well-behaved, we've really started to see her personality when she is not happy. She has a very short temper (just like her daddy) and she is not afraid to show you her disapproval of something. What?, you say. This sweet little face?
Yes. This sweet little face. Apparently at daycare, so I've been told, she gets angry and will yell if another of the kids touches her. She also will throw toys if she is not happy. We see this all the time. She'll be upset, so we'll try to distract her with something. She will grab that item and throw it down. If it makes noise, even better. She wants her way, and she wants it now. We think she may even be a bully. How is that when her mom was such a sweet child? It takes two, people. And from the stories I've heard, she gets this from her daddy too. The daycare people also tell us that she takes another kids pacifier and doesn't want to give it up. Luckily, they laugh and think all of this is funny.
The pictures above were from the hockey game we went to last week. She really seems to enjoy the games, even though we can only stay for the first period because it gets too late for her. We also took her to an organic farmer's market on Friday. She wasn't quite sure what to think of all the people talking to her, but she looked awfully cute in her ladybug stuff.
I love this picture. I just wish it wasn't blurry.
Olivia is not crawling yet, but just this weekend she started pushing herself backwards. She doesn't get up on her knees so she looks kind of like a seal, but at least she can move. Unfortunately it's backwards so then she gets frustrated as the toys get further away. She'll figure it out. Now I just need to get her to hold her own bottle on a consistent basis and we're set!
