4 Months Today

Oliver is 4 months old today. I can't believe how fast the time has gone yet at the same time it seems like Oliver has been here forever. He is learning how to laugh and talks back to people with goo goos and ga gas. Oliver is trying to form words and every once in a while it seems like he says hi or something comparable. He loves to talk and yell and tell people what's going on in his world. Oliver is starting to drool a lot and we don't think it will be long before he starts teething. *sigh* Great.

Oliver has put himself on his own little schedule that goes: waking up, feeding, changing, playing/talking, sleeping. He will sleep anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours before waking up and going through the process again. It isn't until around midnight that he will stay asleep for 9-10 hours. It is cool that he is on his own little schedule but I don't think it will make for easy road trips. Kate is cool with anything but if Oliver doesn't get what he wants or needs on time then the crying begins. Another *sigh* Oh well, I couldn't imagine life without him. Or Kate. Or Lucky. Ahhh, my life is complete. :)

Fun in the Sun

After work yesterday we caravaned over to Bill's house and had some fun. Abby was graciously letting Kate play her pretend games with her so I was able to take Oliver out into the grass to see how he liked it. He felt the grass on his feet were a little weird but would take that over sitting in his Bumbo chari any day. Kind of depressing because I want him to like that chair so much - he'll sit in it for about 10 minutes at a time before screaming at the top of his lungs that he wants out. argh...

Kate was in the middle of doing the Vogue (I have no idea where that came from) and wouldn't keep her hands still.

Oliver was chillin' on the couch and started pushing himself up really well. I had to get a few pics but couldn't stop because he always had the same shocked expression on his face. If you've seen the pictures in the past, it seems like this is his perma-expression. The second pic just kills me, I think I'm going to make a Christmas card out of it or something!

Black and White

Playing around with the black and white settings on my camera. Had a little too much fun... Kate loved it though.

What a Good Day!

Lucky got a call from the loan office of Wells Fargo and the guy told him that we got approved for the shop loan! Oh my gosh! I am shaking right now. This is amazing news. After yesterday of crappy news after crappy news, this comes at us like sunshine on a rainy day. Stay tuned for more when we get it!

Lazy Days

Yeah right. I wish I could say that was true. After starting back at work there has been absolutely no free time whatsoever. I do have to say that it's nice being able to have a conversation with people my own age 70% of the day instead of 20% of the day. Other than that, I wish I could keep taking naps around 2pm when the house is quiet and children are sleeping.

Oh well.

Things have been going good albeit hectic. We were able to go to the Pacific Science Center on Easter which was awesome. It was pouring rain outside so the Pac Sci Center was perfect. Of course, knowing that there was a Blue Moon Burger on the way was making me crazy so we were able to stop there for some lunch beforehand. mmmm mmmm!

OK, enough talking, on to pictures.
I was trying to get a pic of Oliver in his cute little button up shirt and jeans. Then he cracked this huge smile and I couldn't stop laughing.

I had a hankerin' for some bleu cheese so I was happy after my Black and Bleu burger at Blue Moon Burger.

Yes, Brittany is smiling while holding a baby... I know, weird.

This was just this evening. Kate wanted to go outside and ride her new bike so we took the kids out to enjoy the fresh, non-raining air.

I like this pic because it show another expression of Oliver's. Plus now everyone can see how much he looks like Kate when she was that age.

I love this pic. Kate is actually riding towards me. You can see her hair and the streamers blowing in the wind.

Hi, how are ya?

Hello World!

Welcome back to me!

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, in between Oliver feedings, burpings, changings and consolings as well as Kate's constant needing attention and chauferring, I haven't had time to blog. Good news, though, we finally have internet at our house again! Woo hoo! I should have a chance to blog more often so look forward to more.

I started back to work last week after three full months of maternity leave. Although the maternity leave was great, I didn't get a lot of relaxing time and I'm sure you're feeling bad for me. That's ok. It has been fun but I am so glad to be back at work. It has been difficult to go to bed before 3am and difficult to get up at 5:30am but I am ok with the sacrifice. I love being back at work it's unbelievable. I'm looking forward to a long time without time off. Yes, that's crazy but try having two young kids at home and you would be begging to go back to work too.

Enough about me, here are some pics of the kids. I know that's what you've been waiting for anyway.
