Friday, July 31, 2009 - Update

For almost two years, it has been a struggle to get Olivia to take her bottle. We have had to come up with all sorts of tricks to get her to eat. Now, as we try weaning her from the bottle, she has fallen in love with it. All day long she signs more, more, more and when we ask her what she wants more of, she enthusiastically says, "Baba! Baba!" We are constantly having to make more because each bottle only holds 8 oz. She took up to 30 oz one day! Hopefully, this will help her gain weight! She still is not a great eater, but she loves all the Gerber Graduate snacks. Her favorite foods of all, however, are cherries, grapes and strawberries. She would eat them all day if she could. . . .unfortunately, those are not known for their weight gaining capabilities. We still haven't made it to 20 lbs., however, we are getting close. Ryan and I are going to go shopping for a new big girl, forward-facing car seat in anticipation of the day we reach 20 lbs!

I understand that Olivia and Kaleb finished off a box of Donnie's Ritz bits with cheese yesterday. Mom said all they did was eat!
