Oliver had a great second Christmas. As you know, he was only 2 days old for his first Christmas and still in the hospital due to my C-section. We celebrated Christmas late at my mom's house and Oliver slept through most of it. This Christmas we still celebrated late due to the snow but boy what a difference from last Christmas. Oliver was up and walking/crawling around and entertained all of us for the day. My mom and grandmother braved the icy roads to come over the day after Christmas. Mom brought us Christmas dinner and we had a great time opening gifts with Oliver. I'll try to hold myself back and not upload all 100 something pictures we took...
Let's start with Christmas eve:Christmas morning (or the day after)
The ice and snow returned this week and we have been out of school this entire week. I am so happy to have had an extra week of break and time with Oliver. It won't make next week any easier but I am so happy to have had this time with him. He is walking more everyday. We have had the best time playing with his new toys and the plastic toys r us bag. Yes, he still loves plastic bags. One of Oliver's new games is to go to the window and just TALK and TALK to Garrett. I really wonder what he is saying to him. He gets quite animated. Oliver also loves to imitate any kind of noises you make...right now it's this funny grunting noise that he will do with Doug. Cracks me up every time. Also, he is doing the cutest clap. Instead of clapping with his palms together, he places one palm on top of the back of his other hand. He is definitely clapping because he does it when he is happy or when we clap..he just hasn't quite learned to turn his hands around. I am sure he will figure it out in his own time but meanwhile it is really cute.
Oliver is eating more table food everyday...some more than others . He loves peaches, sweet potatoes, pears but will eat just about anything. Oliver is not so crazy about milk but we are working on that. Consistency is the key, right?
I should sign off before Oliver wakes. I hope everyone is enjoying the new year and is staying warm. Take care everyone.
