Help please

So Oliver absolutely will not keep his shoes and socks on. I don't know what to do. He makes it his mission to get them off as soon as they are on. Yesterday I wanted to take him out to play in the leaves and as soon as I put him down his took them off. It hasn't been so bad, but now it is so cold outside.

I would appreciate any thoughts and advice.

good times

We are all doing great. Anthony and I are loving every minute with Oliver. He is a very busy boy and it has been hard for me to do anything. He is into everything. Loves climbing on things and has even taken a couple of steps.

This weekend my Mom had a shower for me. It was so much fun and great to see so many of our family and friends. This Saturday Anthony's brother Frank is having a party for us to meet all of the Licatas. Ollie had a great time this weekend with everyone so I know he'll just love Saturday. It is really an amazing feeling all of the love and support everyone has given us. We all feel so very lucky.

One shower game that Kim organized had to do with the size of Oliver's belly so I thought I would post a picture of it too.

One week

I can't believe we have been home for a week. It went so fast. Oliver is doing great. We went back to the doctor on Monday. His lungs are clear. No more bronchitis. You can tell he is feeling better.

Ollie is such a cute and silly boy. He is really trying to walk. He is pushing a box and a car around the house. The car is really funny because it goes faster than him.

Anthony left for Sweden last night. He is going to be gone for a week and Oliver is already looking for him.

We wanted to let everyone know we arrived home safe and sound. Oliver was given the all clear to fly. He was still sick, but so much better. He was a real trooper on the flight. He slept for a lot of it. We had some space by our seats so we were able to lay some blankets down for him to play on the floor. He got a kick out of that.

We are all having some trouble adjusting to the time change, but hopefully that won't be for too long.
