olivia @ 11 months


it's really hard to believe that olivia is turning 1 year old in two weeks. there are times that i still feel like she was just born not too long ago.

some of the newer more recent things she's been able to do:
- she can now stand up and take a couple steps without any support.
- she can climb off the bed on her own.
- she calls karen "ma" and both grandmas "ah-ma"; still working on "pa" for me tho'
- we can actually interact with her a little bit as she actually answers "hao" (OK in chinese) when we ask her something.
- she hadn't grown any teeth for the longest time but she's got 6 now... 4 up top and 2 on the bottom. she's still barely got any hair tho'!

it's been amazing to see her development. she's constantly learning and doing something new, which is really rewarding and just a great joy to watch.

here are some photos taken the past couple weeks.....
