the funniest thing happened yesterday...

I was at work so I didn't witness this firsthand. There was a pile of dirty clothes in one corner of the playroom. Bob (for some reason) was letting Oliver run around in just a shirt and diaper. Oliver apparently went over to the pile of clothes, pulled down the front of his diaper and peed all over the clothes! I have no idea what possessed him to do this, but when i found out i laughed and laughed and laughed. Oliver has seen Bob using the bathroom a few times and I guess he just figured that's how it's done. It must be time to get a POTTY!

a trip to the park in the WARM WARM weather

It was so nice out yesterday that we couldn't resist stopping at this park. It's just a little park in the middle of a neighborhood but it was almost deserted. Oliver really loved that tunnel, he spent most of the time in it. He liked the swings pretty well, too and we got some super nice swinging pictures. We went down a big curvy slide together and Daddy played hide and seek and tunnel peek. The family shot is a pretty good one, but we couldn't get Oliver to look at the camera - he was too excited!

i'm so slack with updates!

Well, it's been a while since the last post. A lot has been going on. First, Oliver updates: He has picked up a couple new words and signs. His new words are eye, good job!, and wow. I can't remember the new signs and I'm sure there are more words than that but my brain is not working well. He's also started doing much as a 1 year old can. Apparently Bob was watching some cartoon with him and the people were in a fight. Oliver started waving his hands around immitating them. It was VERY cute! Bob also got Oliver some tools. He has 2 hammers, 2 wrenches, 2 screwdrivers, a workbench/stool and a work table. He also has an electric drill, which he makes his own sound effects for. He's figured out how to get the nut off the bolt and he's very good at hammering...everything. Knocking is a new favorite. He likes to go to the front door and knock on it, or knock on the wall to see if anyone will knock back from the other side. Luckily the playroom shares a wall with one of the bathrooms so one of us can go in there and knock back and forth. He will do this for a looooooooong time. I have new pictures but I'm so slack that I haven't even gotten them on the computer yet.

In other news, Oliver is getting ready for his new brother or sister - due 8-8-08!! We just got confirmation from the doctor on the 3rd that we are definately having another baby this year. They didn't do anything except get a medical history at this visit but it seems like everything is fine. I've been doing ok with the morning sickness, it's not nearly as bad as when I was pregnant with Oliver. Mostly I'm HUNGRY...although I do get nauseous sometimes. Life Savers seem to help so I always have some on hand. As of today the baby is 9 weeks, 2 days old. I guess I should add another ticker to the top of the blog!
