Weekend, Continued

Sunday~PART 1

Today Oliver is 7 months! despite being sick this weekend, he is still such a happy boy and we feel so incredibly blessed to have him. Here are a just a few things that he has accomplished since the last month...


...He loves to eat his fruits and veggies. He scarfs his bananas down so fast, but his peas...now that's another story....

...He can roll from his back onto his belly, but not the other way around. Once he's on his belly though, he get SO mad so he just cries instead of trying to roll back over...

...When we put him to bed at night, he loves to grab his burp rag or small blanket and rub his cheeks and face with it until he falls asleep. Usually he'll also knock out his binky in the process, but he still manages to fall asleep...

...He has the two cutest little baby teeth I've ever seen...

...He has started to give us kisses. I never knew that those slobbery wet baby kisses would bring me so much happiness. It's the best thing ever!

Sunday~PART 2

Also today, we were able to finish celebrating Easter. Unfortunately because Oliver has been sick, we didn't get to attend all of church. I just went to my first meeting and then came home to take care of boy. After an afternoon of napping and resting, we headed to the Baker house to have an Easter dinner with the traditional Ham, mashed potatoes, rolls and deviled eggs. After dinner we had an Easter egg hunt for the adults. My mom hides a few eggs for us with money and like little kids, we too go out looking for those eggs. Oh, and after we put Oliver to bed, I tried to convince Luke to stay up and watch a movie with me. When he found out that I was going to watch "Steel Magnolias", he ran right to bed.


Easter has quickly become one of my most favorite holidays. The newness of life, the pastel colors of Easter eggs, candy and decor. I love the days of good weather, and the sight of the blossoming trees and growing gardens. It all really is such a breath of fresh air. Mostly though, I love reflecting on the life that our Savior Jesus Christ lived, His example to us, and His love for each one of us.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday and that you got to spend it with people you love.

7 months?!? Love that boy. I am sorry he is sick, especially since I am sure he got it from my disease infested house. I am a little jealous you watched Steel Magnolias. Ever since your last post I have been thinking about it!
