a much better week

It's Tuesday night and so far the big news of the week is this:

Anthony is away until Saturday on a work trip. Oliver is sick. Not seriously sick. Just a icky running nose and nasty cough. Oliver is a big fan of the, I'm not sure of the name of it, but I've been calling it the boogie sucker. The first thing he said to Anthony on the phone tonight was "no boogies". He is sneezing all of the time. Now after he sneezes once he'll say "bless you Ollie again".

We have been laying low. Not doing any of our usual fun things which is such a shame because the weather has been unseasonably warm.

Oliver hasn't been himself since he's been sick. He's been fussy and not happy. But Oliver can get away with murder because he has the cutest sick voice. It's a cross between Lindsay Lohan and Elmo.

We had a great weekend. We took a rode trip to Baltimore. We were there for our friends, Mike and Amanda's, party to celebrate their wedding. They got married in September in Boulder. Unfortunately we didn't make it to Boulder. I'm so glad we got to go to this party. It was a great time. Oliver loved the party and loved being away. We went to the aquarium which was amazing. He loved all of the animals. Especially the turtles. Anthony and I love taking road trips. We've hardly taken any since we've brought Oliver home. There is no reason for us not to do it again. He was so easy. He loved the hotel. He loved seeing all of the new people. After the holidays we'll have to go somewhere again. Speaking of the holidays, I can't believe how soon the holidays are going to be here. I'm not ready at all. I have so many things planned in my head. I hope I can get to half of them.

I've been cooking a lot too. A lot of homey fall weather food. I made the most unbelievable chicken pot pie. When I get the chance I'll post the recipe.

Sounds like a great trip! Our little guy doesn't sleep great on the road... which is kind of a bummer.

I hope Ollie feels better soon!

(And yes, I can't even believe how quickly the holidays are approaching!)
