We had the most fun day today and I'm struggling to keep my eyes open. We had our little gym class which was awesome. Olive was in full blown maniac mode. She was jumping off everything and throwing herself on the ground doing somersaults in the middle of class. She would just start dancing and running into walls but thinking it was funny. She was wired. She was happy and not getting in anyones way so I guess I can't complain. After class we met up with some moms and babes at the beach. Sadly the sun never came out but it was fun to see everyone and baby wrangle. The weather is supposed to be amazing this weekend so it looks like we'll be at the beach enjoying it.
We've been putting Olive to bed a little later these days. She was really fighting her 7:00 bedtime so we've been pushing it till around 7:30-7:45 and she seems so much happier. She still gets up at her 6:04 or 6:08 but she seems to be fine till her nap time around 1. Her eating has been really difficult lately, she just seems totally uninterested in meals. It has nothing to do with what I'm feeding her but she just doesn't want to eat. I've had to play games with the food and physically feed her to get her to take bites. Once I get her going with a game or give her baby or Brobee bites she takes a few on her own but for the most part she would just sit there or tell me she is all done. It's crazy as she has always been a great eater but I imagine this is just one of the toddler things I'm going to have to deal with. Meals just take a bit longer these days but as long as she gets some food in I'm good. Hoping she will get over this soon. I think it's hard too cause all of my friends have no problem with their kids eating so I feel a little alone and weird. I know that's silly but with most baby stuff there is usually someone on the same page that can kinda understand so you don't feel like it's just you. I know she is healthy but since she is super skinny I want to make sure she is getting enough food.
This morning we were in Olive's room and I hear her say spider which sounds more like spid so I run over and there is a spider on the wall. I quickly grab a wipe and kill it and she looks at me and starts clapping and then signs thank you. Who is this kid?? I've never in my life killed a spider around her but she clearly did not want that thing around.
