Livi is still learning to walk; she takes several steps on her own and then falls or runs into something. Much prefers crawling still. We are borrowing a scandalous walker from the Fitzpatricks and she *loves* to chase Riley around, but we're not expecting it to help her walk. Are keeping the basement door closed.
Feeding is still a challenge. The girl will not eat vegetables, you cannot make her. I laughed when Dr. D said her orange nose indicates she likes orange vegetables, because she hasn't had any for weeks. I didn't tell him that. She does like cheese, chili beans, kiwi, grapes, bananas, chicken nuggets, Kix, mac and cheese, chili, and on certain days, spaghetti. My dad wants to give her a bowl of spaghetti and stand back to take pictures. If you know me at all you know that I am cutting the noodles into 1/2" lengths and spoon feeding it to her. She has added to her Yay-clapping and Touchdown a new football signal that Steve says is "loss of down" but loosely translates to "now needs a bath." Olivia has been cutting new teeth but is kind of private about it; Dr. Dameron got a look and said she's working on some molars. Clear my schedule.
