I love how the boys play together

Wyatt's favorite person is Oliver. He smiles the biggest and coos the loudest when Oliver plays with him. Oliver is getting better at being gentle when he's around Wyatt. He likes reading to him (making up stories and pointing to the pictures in the book), showing him toys and letting him hold them. He sometimes still doesn't know what is ok for Wyatt to play with or not. I put all Wyatt's toys in one bin so it'd be easier but he still sometimes gives him cars or stuff. Just a minute ago he had a stuffed cow and was showing Wyatt and singing "I'm a cow! I'm a cow!" It was so cute.

Even though Oliver tries to shove his pacifier in Wyatt's mouth at random times and sometimes bonks him in the head with a toy when he gets too excited, and Wyatt sometimes hits or kicks Oliver with his wildly swinging limbs, they are still best buds. I can tell, even a this young age, that they love each other.

Go ahead, try to resist the cuteness...

Bob made Wyatt a fort so he could sit up and watch Oliver play

All dressed up!

Oliver tried on his fancy outfit for the first time today. We're thinking of wearing it for Thanksgiving. He was such a poser while I was taking his picture that I couldn't resist putting up more than one picture. Thank you to Aunt Sarah for the shirt and vest, gramma and grampa for the pants!

Oliver says...


He sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
He sings Moon Moon Moon (Laurie Burkner)
He sings The Bear Song (Gramma!)

Me: "Oliver, who's on the penny?"
Oliver: "Labe Lincoln!!"

Don't like it!! - (to everything!)

Oliver do it!

Don't cry, Quiet...(he still calls Wyatt Quiet. it's so cute!)

Daddy works there! Mim works there, too! (whenever he sees an RTG logo or commercial)

When he wants socks on he says he wants them so his feet won't get "coldy moldy"

He said "man...up there" once and now I don't like going in his room

He's a chatty little guy...he goes up to people in the store and says "hi, how ya doin?"

Mim sungle Oliver? (snuggle)

Oliver: Oliver have chicken
Me: what chicken? (it's not time to eat)
Oliver: chicken in back yard!
Me: what? I don't see a chicken!
Oliver: Dancing Chicken!
me: a dancing chicken? What's his name?
Oliver: Mim...Dancing Chicken!
Me: oooooh, well that makes sense! Where'd he learn to dance?
Oliver: Oliver teach it!
Me: Well then he must have some really cool moves
Oliver: Nooooooo, Mim

super duper! or awesome! when he thinks something is really cool

I can't believe how much he talks!

No update for a week...

It has been such a busy week! I don't know what we did but we were busy, I swear!

Oliver's been super busy lately. He builds lego towers all day long. When he knocks it down he just says "build it again!" and then does. He's also still crazy about lining up his cars on the TV table. Speaking of which, we got a new TV. Someone we know upgraded to a flat panel and gave us their old one. The new one is HUGE...even bigger than our old huge one. I'm glad we got it replaced though. The old one had a big green spot on one side. I can't complain too much though, that one was given to us too. Oliver has also been more self sufficient. He's putting on his own clothes, feeding himself without making a huge mess, washing himself in the bath, cleaning up his toys. It's like he's a ...kid! He's still napping once a day but instead of an hour it's an hour and a half or two hours.

Wyatt is getting bigger and bigger. He weighs about 15 pounds now and eats like a fiend. He's getting really good at grabbing stuff and getting it to his mouth. He loves those link things...we call them linka dinkas. He gets one in each hand and just goes to town! He's good at sleeping - 7 hours in a row last night!! That's a first, though. Usually it's 5 or 6 at a time. That's still better than Oliver ever did. He's such a happy baby - always smiling and laughing. He likes to fly and he likes being bounced up and down. He still doesn't mind having a bath, but getting out is just the worst thing ever. Probably because it's cold. His favorite thing to do is watch Oliver. He will just stare at Oliver for the longest time. He gets so excited when Oliver plays with him!

Thanksgiving is this week and I'm just not sure if I have enough energy to be excited about it. We're going to Bob's dad's house again this year to visit with them and Bob's sisters. RTG gave me a 20 pound turkey for Thanksgiving. I put it in the freezer...I have no idea how to cook a turkey!

It's getting cold and we had our first snow a few days ago. I woke up and looked out the window to see the snow all over the ground. Oliver was pretty excited but it was too cold to take Wyatt out so he didn't get to play in it. It might have been too cold for ME to go out, too!

I'm not sure if I mentioned that my mom and sister and their hubbies came to visit. I have pictures so if I look back and see that I didn't post it then I will put the pictures up and write about it when I'm back on the big computer. I'm on the laptop right now so I can't get to the pictures.

Bob is almost done with school for the semester!! I'm so excited that I can barely stand it! It'll be nice to have some evening together instead of always having one of us home and one at work or school. It's so hard to keep everything together...we hardly ever have time to ourselves. When we ARE both home it's usually only for an hour or two and Bob will work on schoolwork or I have housework to catch up on. It seems neverending. It's going to be nice to get to relax together. Maybe we can find a babysitter and have a DATE!!!

i guess that's all for now. I'm tired and it's getting late. I'll try to post those pictures tomorrow...and maybe some others, too.
