In the last week or so, Olivia has begun to shriek and squeal all the time. She has been babbling and cooing for a long while now but these new noises top the decibel meter. They're so loud!
She also likes to stomp her foot while laying on her blanket and it makes me glad we're in a first floor apartment because I'm certain our neighbors could hear it if we were above them (speaking of my neighbors, they walk like they're giants).
I've been on the phone a few times with my mom and Russ this week and Olivia has been squealing; she just wants to be an active participant in the conversation. Of course, this has led me to realize how frequently in the future I will be saying, "use your inside voice."
