I had to get the spider off the screen, it was creeping me out!

So here's big news! Oliver is trying to stand on his own. He hasn't quite figured out how to get up to standing but he sticks his little booty up in the air with his legs straight and pushes up with his arms. He can't get up, but he's working on it. Bob said that yesterday Oliver was cruising around in the living room and he let go of whatever he was holding onto and took a little step to get to the next thing to grab onto. HIS FIRST STEP!! I'm so sad I was at work and missed it, but I've gotten to see most of his firsts while Bob is at work so it's ok.

He was sleeping so well last night. He went down at about 10 and then we went to bed at 11ish. When we went in he fussed for a second and then *calmed himself back to sleep*. This is a first for Oliver. I was so proud. At least until midnight when he woke up screaming his head off! Poor guy. I changed him and rocked him but he was having none of it. Finally we rubbed some Orajel on his gums and he calmed right down and went to sleep. Poor baby! He's not doing so well today either. He's had diarhea and been very cranky. I tried the Orajel again and it didn't seem to make much of a difference except that he stopped crying. We watched his video all snuggled up on the new futon and then I rocked him to sleep. I hope he's feeling better when he wakes up. I hate when he's grouchy because he doesn't feel good.

I just got a subscription to Parents Magazine. I'm very excited about it! I got 4 years for only $14!!! I can't wait to get my first issue!

That is awesome that he's trying to stand on his own! Way to go Oliver!

I love that magazine you subscribe to. I get the Canadian version though, and it's definitely NOT 4 years for 14$!!!

My ped recommended Humphrey's teething tablets. I think it is only $1. They are awesome and really work! If he doesn't like them, they were only $1!

Way to go on standing on his own!!!! So cute!

Sometimes I want to grab my camera because some of Olivia's expressions are EXACTLY the same as Olivers. I swear they are internet twins, just like you said. hee.

oh - if you do try them, just pop it in his mouth. Don't do the dissolve instructions.
