Lazy Saturday

Its a beautiful day here. My mom is here today visiting and will stay the night. I love having her here. Jay is out golfing, and Oliver is asleep upstairs with my mom. So I'm taking a litte bit to play on the internet!

Oliver was 9 months on Tuesday! Gosh, its soooo hard to believe. On Thursday we got his pics taken at Portrait Innovations. I wasn't as happy with those as I was with his 6 month pictures. The photographer just didn't seem as quick with taking pictures, meaning she kept trying to get him to look a certain place and wouldn't take a picture until he was doing what she wanted, even though sometimes he would have the cutest look on his face or whatever. Oh well, we still ended up getting 7 different poses, out of 106 pics they took!

Its such a change to look at his 6 month pictures and then his 9 months. He has grown so much and has gotten a LOT more hair! Its curly and crazy and I love it!

Oliver still doesn't have an interest in crawling. All he wants to do is stand! He has had his legs straight pretty much his entire life until a month ago when Dr. C said he only needed his braces at night. Last weekend he started taking steps when he was holding onto our hands. I can't wait to see him walk. Thank you to everyone who has made positive comments about Oliver standing. We have truly been blessed and every day we thank God for taking such good care of our baby! It is because of Him that Oliver is thriving.

Sunny Days

It has been absolutely gorgeous here the past couple of days. Yesterday Kirsten and I took the boys for a walk. She has a son, David, who is 10 mos older than Oliver. She is due anyday now with a baby girl, so we are walking as much as possible!! She and I both ended up sunburned...maybe we should do as good of a job protecting our own skin as we do on our babies! We took a realllllly long walk, and about a mile from home Oliver decided he had had ENOUGH of the stroller and wanted out. I tried to even walk beside it and talk to him, but nope. He had some big tears, so after 2 hours of walking, I picked him up and carried him and pushed the stroller another mile home. Oh my, it was probably quite the site! I meant to throw my Beco in the basket of the stroller in case this happened but forgot. I learned my lesson! :)

Oliver loves being outside, and I can't wait for all the fun things this summer. Jay will be off work until July 21 so we're going to make the most of this first summer we have together as a family of 3. :)

I will add a picture later when I'm on a computer that has recent pics.

wow, so its been over 3 months since I've blogged. Now its almost summertime, and because of the GM layoff, Jay will be home until July 21. So hopefully I can update some more about Oliver.

He is getting sooooo big! In fact, my little pumpkin is letting me know its time for some breakfast. :-) But here are some recent pictures.
