Oliver's First Birthday!!

We had a cheerios themed party with lots of treats!

My birthday sign from Emy being put to good use!

I don't know why he is so serious!!

Sharing a high chair for dinner after the party!

Oliver turned 1 on May 18th, to celebrate we went to the Spaghetti Factory with Grandma Linda!  It was a tradition while Wes was growing up to go to the Spaghetti Factory for your birthday every year, so we decided to carry on that tradition!  Then a last Saturday we had a joint Birthday Party with Duncan whose birthday is June 11th.  Oliver adopted the attitude of "it's my party I can cry if I want to..." so we didn't get that many pictures of him actually smiling the little stinker!!  But I did give him his second hair cut the night before the party so we could spike his hair up again!  At Oliver's one year check up he weighed 25 lbs 11 oz and was 31.5 inches long (both 96th percentile still) and of course he had another ear infection!  Oliver is not quite walking although I think he is getting close, he lets go of things and stands by himself a lot now and his balance seems to be improving.  He is pretty content crawling though, he can get pretty much where ever he wants that way and has even start climbing up things (like Christie and Ryans piano bench!)  He claps his hands and pants when you ask him what a doggy says.  He is obsessed with dogs!!  We were out jogging the other day and he got really excited because there was a dog in front of us then we passed the dog and he started crying because he couldn't see it anymore!  He always crawls to where Mitzy stays in the house and pants!  Here are some recent pictures of our little toddler!!
