Here is the tower that Nick built for Oliver while we were in California. We absolutely love it and don't know how we ever lived without it! Oliver loves to help us cook and we're so glad we no longer have to worry about him falling off a chair.

Here's my recipe:
1/2 bunch broccoli
1/2 bunch kale
1/2 bunch chard
2 oz cheese of your preference
almond milk (or other milk of your choice)
salt and pepper
1. Steam veggies in a small amount of water, retaining water.
2. In a blender, combine steamed veggies plus water, cheese, and almond milk until it reaches desired consistency.
3. Add about 1 Tbs of oil (I use olive and walnut) and salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 1 full blender, about 40 oz.

Who knew great-grandparents could be so much fun :) Here are a few photos of the time Oliver spent with his great-grandparents, Great Binny and Great Grampy.

Last weekend Oliver rode the steam trains at Tilden Park for the first time. He loved it! Here are a few pictures from the day:
|Walking quickly to catch a spot on the train|
|We took up a whole car|
|He loved sitting next to Grandpa|
|Walking along the tracks while waiting for another ride|
|and sitting on them|
|Don't get run over! Laying on the tracks with grandpa Bruce.|
|Choo Choo! The train was definitely smaller than I remembered it being when I was a kid.|
|Oliver and Mommy|
|Sitting in the engine! He didn't want to leave.|

Another month has flown by. Oliver will be 2 before we know it! Here are a some pictures from last month that I haven't posted yet. A lot of them revolve around food as he's become a lot more independent with his eating lately.
|drinking at the table|
|one of his favorite ways to eat, standing at the table on his little chair|
|he's gotten really good at using forks|
|and he finally likes bananas|
|he takes huge bites!|
|kisses for Penny!|

We completely lucked out on our flight today as the plane was half empty! That meant, not only did we get an empty middle seat as I was hoping we would, be we actually had the whole row to ourselves. That made for a perfect flight with a very active toddler. I put all the armrests up and let Oliver run back and forth on the seats. He loved it, and between that, lots of snacking, and a short nap, we had a very successful flight.

Oliver loves to use Nick's headphones to listen to his mp3 player or his electric guitar so much that Nick thought he should have a pair of his own. We found this pair for ages 2-5 which fit him perfectly on the smallest setting.
|of course playing with the cord is half the fun|
