Thursday, October 23, 2008 - Update

I decided to let Olivia help me write the update today. So, here it is:

Thank you, Olivia, for your beautiful words. I'm amazed at how much she wants to use her hands. . .whether it's playing her piano, banging on my keyboard, or grabbing my plate when I'm eating. The other thing that she loves to do is walk around the house holding your fingers. She could do it all day. Of course, she is nowhere near walking on her own and she hasn't yet cruised around on the furniture or stood unassisted, but she loves walking. I think she'd rather walk around the house than be held. She is so very proud of this accomplishment and, of course, so am I. I love to see where she wants to walk and what she wants to look at. I still wish she would crawl and that's something that we're still working on. It's like she's not even a baby anymore. She's developing her own opinions and own thoughts about what she wants to do (and has started throwing mini-tantrums when she doesn't get to do them.) She tenses her body and screams when she's mad. I guess I'm going to have to introduce the word "no."

Can't wait to walk her around the house!! I don't envy you introducing the word "no" though! It's got to happen some day I suppose. I hope you have a good weekend.
