Combined post because the past two months have been such a blur! At nine and ten months, Oliver…
:: Has this really fun position that he likes where he’s up on one knee with the other leg diagonally to his side. Very yoga-like and very cute.
:: Loves paper. Oranges. Hot Cross buns.
:: Likes to gouge my face with his sharp, tiny fingernails. Or pull my hair, if he’s lying next to me for a nap and can’t fall asleep.
:: Still super fascinated by Charlie.
:: Has been a super velcro baby lately, not wanting me to put him down or leave the room. I blame teeth.
:: Is starting to enjoy being “dipped” upside down for a moment, but still doesn’t like too much motion (like being thrown up in the air).
:: Visited Rome and was fawned over by every Italian woman over the age of 50. “Dulci!” they would exclaim.
:: Speed crawls. To the point that sometimes he’ll faceplant because his legs get ahead of his hands.
:: Cruises all over the place. He’s starting to bridge some of the gaps at wider and wider distances by barely even touching the furniture.
:: Babbles like crazy, with new sounds showing up constantly.
:: Likes riding in the ergo on my back like a koala bear.
:: Has two top teeth and two bottom teeth, with more threatening to break through at any moment.
:: Growls. Not at anything consistent, but it cracks me up.
:: Has a super cackly-laugh/giggle that I wish I could bottle up.
