Oliver's new hat!

I love this hat so much it inspired a photo shoot (that and the 6 inches of snow we got yesterday!)  There are more pictures of Oliver and I because Wes apparently takes better pictures than I do...something I need to work on!

The snow looks blue because I had to lighten the pictures because it was dark outside!

A visit from papa and grandma!

This weekend my parents came out and spent the weekend with us.  It felt like I hadn't seen them for such a long time even though it had only been since Christmas.  We had a nice relaxing weekend, ate lots of great food (thanks to Wes), went shopping and played with Oliver.  Oliver was a little bit of a stinker though, in the last week or two he has become quite the mama's boy!  If I was around he didn't want anyone else holding him but me!  He played with papa and grandma, but didn't let them hold him for too long!  He turned 9 months old on Saturday!  I can't believe that!  He's wearing 18 month clothing, getting more teeth and working really hard at starting to crawl.  He gets up on all fours and reaches for things and then just lurches forward to get whatever he is seeking, its almost like he dives forward, its really funny but quite effective!  We love this little man!!
Oli's new outfit from Grandma!

I love his shy expression in this picture!

Playing catch up....

So it's been a while here's what has been going on with us...


I had to work Christmas Eve night this year which kind of sucked...the night wasn't bad but I felt awful that I had to leave Wes and Oliver on Christmas Eve.  Wes was pretty lonely because Oliver goes to bed at 7pm, so he had a pretty lame Christmas Eve.  When I got home in the morning Wes had packed up almost everything we needed and we drove over to Olympia to spend the next week at my parents house. We had a great time spending time with my family and Wes got a couple of fishing trips in.  Oliver got some fun new toys and books to chew on, and Wes got an awesome Cuisinart grill (kind of like a george forman but way better)  We use it all the time!!! (I pulled these pics from winkflash and for some reason I can't make them bigger)

Oliver's first time in the pool

Oliver turned 8 months old started teething, had his first ear infection and reaction to antibiotics!!  Oliver has

This doesn't really show how bad his rash really was.  The first day he was mostly white with red spots, then the next day he was mostly red!!

These are just some pictures I took yesterday.

You can see his two little teeth!
