A month shy of officially hitting the "terrible twos," Olivia is as demanding and stubborn as the next toddler. She has a quiet way of sneaking around the house doing whatever she pleases, and most of time this is fine with me, as she doesn't cause a lot of trouble. But let me assure you, she can throw a killer tantrum complete with big crocodile tears the minute things don't go her way. Adorable and sweet 98% of the time, obnoxious and unruly the other 2%. I think that's how it is with most almost 2-year olds, right?
This tiny little girl has decided that she does not need to sit in her booster seat at the table anymore. At each meal time she climbs up to any available 'adult chair' with confidence and ease. Then she proceeds to give me numerous mini-heart attacks throughout the meal while she stands, climbs, wiggles, and occasionally falls off of the chair. All-the-while never letting go of her food.
Today Olivia decided that she's too mature for the cheap plastic Ikea dishes I've been serving the kids' food on for the past 3+ years. Today she found her way up to the table to finish off a big bowl of Cheerios that I was too distracted to finish eating. I swear, our bowls are not as huge as it looks in these pictures... her head is just that little.
