Olivia is eleven months old today. This afternoon, we finally got her to cooperate and actually smile WHILE sitting still enough to get a good picture.
On Friday, Olivia started making this sound when she was running all over the living room. It sounded like she was saying, "Beezubeezubeezubeezu". But in the context of her running all over the living room, it started to sound like "Busybusybusybusy". So we kept asking her, "Are you busy, busy, busy?" And now she's actually saying it that way. It is hilarious to watch her toddle frantically all over the place saying "Busybusybusybusy".
Yesterday she was indeed busy. We had a full day before we arrived at an evening wedding we were attending. It was the first wedding we've attended where Olivia has been fully mobile. And she LOVED IT! As soon as I let her down, she ran straight for the dance floor and started following all the other little kids around. I followed right behind her. I was deathly afraid that one of the boys who was running and sliding all over the floor was going to knock her down. They came very close a few times, but she barely noticed.
Most of our evening was spent following her as she ran back and forth, stopping for a few seconds here and there to dance and wave her arms around, and then she was off again. Yelling in excitement most of the time too. People who didn't know her were completely charmed by her cuteness.
Before long, she was worn out. This is Daddy trying to dance with her. She's definitely zoned out.
We realized it was time to head home, but not before changing her into her PJs so she could go straight to bed. Of course, even then she wanted to make one last round to make sure she wasn't missing any of the excitement.
Very busy, busy, busy.
