Here is a video of Oliver babbling one night when he didn't want to sleep. He sure had a lot to say!

Sitting - at 19 weeks

We practice sitting every time I change him, and it makes it's easier to dress him this way. For some reason he doesn't mind having things go over his head when he's sitting up, but he doesn't tolerate it very well if he's lying down.

I like my rattle!

Look how straight up I can sit!

Funny face!

Piggyback Ride

Nick practices with Penny since Oliver is not quite old enough.

PEPS Babies

Here are some long overdue pictures, taken about a month ago. These are the PEPS babies in our group. You can see Oliver in the middle surrounded by girls! There's just one other boy (on the far left). When we put Oliver down he immediately reached for River's hand, and held it the entire time.

Binny wouldn't be Binny without her brightly colored hats, headbands, bows, or anything else she wears on her head. She recently sent Oliver a few hats so that he can join in her style.

Eating or kissing daddy, I'm not quite sure which one it is

A little blurry, but the hat says OINK!

I think I'm going to eat my hand

Happy Valentine's Day!

Nick, Oliver and I went out for a late brunch at Portage Bay Cafe, an organic restaurant that opened up a few months ago nearby. The food was delicious and they even had gluten free pancakes on the menu! Then we strolled around Green Lake with Penny and got back just in time for Nick to go to bed early (he's still getting up at 2am for the early shift at work). I tried to get a few pictures of Oliver playing with a tissue paper heart, but he was tired and it was past his nap time so here's what I got:

4 Month Update

So we can't believe Oliver is already 4 months old! He's growing so much and turning into a little boy. We love him more and more each day and he's so much fun! His favorite toy right now are his feet! He loves to babble, especially when in his car seat or on the changing table. He'll be sitting up soon, and he can support himself pretty well in the tripod position. He also loves to watch Penny. He recently started "petting" or grabbing for her fir. She's not thrilled with that, but it's pretty cute to watch. He continues to be super mellow and is really easy to travel with. And he is even reading now (see pictures below)!
Here are his month 4 stats:
Weight 14lbs 5 oz
Height: 25 in
Head: 44 cm
Neck rolls: many
Hope everyone is doing well! We would love to see you all!
Family nap time!

4 Months!

Our little man is 4 months old today! I'll do more of an update tomorrow after his 4-month checkup, but here are some pictures I took after his bath.

A few days ago I taught this silly boy how to put his feet in his mouth and the next morning he demonstrated for me that he could do it on his own. Yum!

Warm Weather

Seattle just had it's warmest January on record, and our February is starting out pretty nice too! I haven't had to take out my warm puffy jackets or my hats so far this winter and this weekend we went walking in short sleeves and sunglasses.

Airplane #3

Here is a news clip of the airplane Nick has been spending so much time on, airplane #3. They were kicked off yesterday so the media could tour it. His friend Brian is in the clip.
