a little about Olive Lou

^^If I had to choose one photo that embraces everything about my little Olive Lou it would have to be this one. Classic Olive expression! ^^

This girl has fallen head first into toddler hood. 
Everyday I am shocked by the words she has learned and the little toddler 'tude she gives. 
She sure knows how to hold her own, especially against Remington. 
They love each other so much, but I feel like lately all i'm doing is breaking up fights! 
Two toddler is a lot to handle sometimes, but I am just loving how much they are growing and changing.
 Here are just a few things that I wanted to write down and remember,

Her most repeated phrases are:
"Nuh-ner wah?" aka Another one: When she wants more food, mostly fruit snacks, donuts and anything else sweet. A girl after my own heart.
"NO!" Pretty much whenever we say anything to her. 
"Peeeeas!" aka please: When she wants someone to get her out of bed, wants more food, wants to get in the bath again etc. 
"Oh WOOOW!" To anything sparkly, shiny, big or anything new in general. 
"Where Nen-ni?" Nen-ni = Remi and it so soooo cute in her little voice. It's the first thing she asks when she wakes up or if she goes anywhere alone with us without her big brother by her side. 

If Rem leaves the table with food still on his plate, she jumps up on his chair and finishes it off. 
She is very particular about drinking out of water bottles. She prefers them over anything else.  
She loves going "bye-bye" and riding in the car.
She is OBSESSED with shoes and socks! She can put on her own boots and likes to try and get herself dressed. 
She loves holding her "bebe" and pushing her around in her doll stroller.
She hates getting her hair done and refuses to wear headbands.

We learned that she is allergic to milk and is sensitive to grains which has been a process to figure out, but it's nice to know what has been causing a bunch of her issues.
Last month we had to call 911 because she stopped breathing and had a seizure. Like blue in the face, eyes rolled back, foaming at the mouth, entire body shaking ordeal... I haven't really talked about it much because it was so traumatic for everyone. They chalked it up to an extreme breath holding spell (which she still does like 2x a month.) It hasn't happened again thank goodness, so we are praying that it was just a freak, one time thing. 

 Lastly, she turns 18 months at the end of this month!! I can't believe it!!!
Dave and I are SO excited to finally drop her off in nursery full time and be able to enjoy our Sundays for a few months before baby girls joins us.
