such a cutie!

Playing together and a few misc ones

Oliver loves his phone. Most of the time he'll "call" Gramma when he plays with it. Today he wanted Wyatt to talk to Gramma, too. He was very careful not to smash the phone into Wyatt's head or anything - he did a super job of sharing. They played like this for a while until Oliver got bored with Wyatt not talking to Gramma like he was supposed to. At that point Oliver ran off into the playroom...

He's so happy all the time...well, most of the time anyway. He's so easy going and always ready with this big smiley face.
Wyatt, on the other hand, looks terrified! I have NO idea what he was looking at when I took this picture.
He's pretty easy going too, easily amused and quick with the teeth in this gummy little cute!

I have good boys. I'm very happy with the way they are growing up into big smart well behaved boys. They both have their moments when they are too loud or won't do what they're told (I know, Wyatt's too young to understand) but overall they are so good.

Wyatt's really starting to lift his head so well. He gets up on his arms and looks around for a minute or two at a time. He can also scoot a little bit if there's something to push his feet against. He's holding toys and can usually get them up to his mouth to gnaw on them. He's rejecting the paci more and more (thank goodness!) but he's starting to find a thumb or finger to chew or suck on. He likes being in the bouncy seat because he can make it move all by himself. We are contemplating getting a swing but I'm not really sure we need one. The only reason I'd really want one is because it would help him go to sleep. Another month or so and he'll be able to use the saucer. He's getting so big so fast I just don't know what to do. Every time I turn around he's doing something new!

Speaking of turning around...We were getting ready to go to lunch today. I got Wyatt's milk ready (4 oz) and left the open bottle on the counter. Oliver was running around looking for his shoes and I went into the bedroom to get dressed. When I came back out Oliver was still looking for his shoes but the milk was GONE. The empty bottle was just sitting there on the counter. There was no milk anywhere - not on the floor, not in the sink, not on Oliver - but I'm pretty sure that Oliver got that bottle down and drank Wyatt's milk.

Halloween costumes cost how much?!?!?!

After looking at costumes all over the place and finding that they were all around $20 we finally decided on this. It's actually pajamas but it will totally work for a costume as well. There's no way we can afford to spend $20 on something he's going to wear for a few hours! I don't know how people do it, especially for more than one kid! Anyway we tried it on earlier and he just loved it. He ran around being "The bat-uh-man" until it was time for bed. The first picture is Oliver checking himself out in the big mirror on his dresser.
The second one is him showing off his "Bat-uh-man" moves.

Going out...oh how fun it is!

We went out to look at freezers (at Sears) and ended up eating out at Macaroni Grill...the food was ok, the service was horrible. At one point Oliver said he needed to go potty. Hooray! I whisked him away to the bathroom, got his pants and diaper off and sat him on the toilet. He sat there a minute and then...the toilet flushed! LOUDLY! It was an automatic one so I guess he moved just wrong and set it off. He was so scared that he jumped off the potty and kept saying "don't like it!". I finally got him calmed back down and set him back up on the potty. This time in just a few seconds it flushed again. GRRRRR! This happened one more time before I gave up, appologized to poor Oliver because not only was he scared of the potty but he'd also have to pee in his diaper, and headed back to the table.

We finished eating and then went to Barnes & Noble where we went to the bathroom again. Oliver had a dry diaper so we tried the potty again (after I convinced him this one wasn't going to flush until he pushed the handle). He ended up going and I felt so much better! Anyway, we probably won't be going back to Macaroni Grill anytime soon...and we definately won't use auto-flush toilets!

Two cute outfits

Wyatt looks like he's ready to go jogging. I love this outfit (thanks, Mom!). It's so soft but not like fleece...fleece makes my hands feel dry.

Here he is looking like a lumberjack...or at least like Bob. I love the little flannel shirt.
Strangely enough this was a hand-me-down from Oliver but I have NO pictures of Oliver in this outfit. Wyatt's hair is a lot lighter than Oliver's was at this age. It looks almost blonde in this picture but it's actually light brown.

I guess that's what I get

I told Oliver to show me his teeth. Usually he'll smile when I say that but this time...well...
