Having fun

Things are great here. It is so cool to see how much Oliver is changing. He is laughing like crazy. He likes to take one of our hands and use it to do or get whatever he wants. He is walking and blowing kisses. He loves to dance. These days it is usually to Christmas music. He is so cute wiggling his little butt. His big move is swinging his arms from side to side. He still hates shoes, socks, and bibs. He doesn't really like food with any texture. He has found my belly button and it just cracks him up. He peed standing up in the tub the other day. When it started to happen he pointed at it and just had the biggest smile. He really is a dude.

11 months old

Wow Oliver's tenth month flew by. It is so different than when we were celebrating these monthly birthdays without him.

He is doing great. Very very busy. He is starting to walk. Although not in his costume. He loves yelling and chasing the cats. Most of all he loves throwing his toys through the cat door.

We had a full weekend. Halloween and his party at Frank and Diane's.

He seemed indifferent to Halloween. He didn't mind his penguin costume which was nice. He liked sitting in his stroller and watching all of the kids run around the neighborhood.

The party was so much fun. We were glad the rest of the family got to meet Oliver. He loved meeting almost all of his cousins, Aunts, and Uncles. We can't wait until Christmas when he can meet the rest.

A big thank you to Frank, Diane and everyone who did so much for the party. It means so much to us.
