Teach 'em young...

Ian's got Oliver learning to love motorcycles already!

One Month Old!

I can't believe it's been a month already! Time with our little bug has really flown!
Ian was out of town from Sunday to Thursday this week, and we missed him lots! But we survived and Oliver is actually getting really good with a bedtime routine and he is sleeping a lot longer at night. As soon as Ian walked in the door he noticed how big he has gotten; it's hard for me to tell, since I see him everyday, but it's easy to see by looking at photos.
We did a little photo session today, and below are a couple of the pictures. Click on the 'Oliver Photos' link to the left to see all of them.

Baby Wrap

I recently got our new baby wrap in the mail, from, and we looooove it! Oliver loves napping on our chests and now I can still get things done around the house! Especially at this young of age, 'babywearing' is so good for babies. ( I highly recommend this wrap (, or the Moby Wrap (which is very similar) to any new mom and dad!

3 Weeks

Just a short note while Oliver is napping on his Boppy (which is my absolute favorite baby gear). Oliver turned 3 weeks old yesterday - it has really gone by fast. He's getting better at sleeping in his cradle, although of course he still prefers sleeping in our arms.
Ian went back to work this week, so Oli and I have been working on getting into a routine, although I don't get much done around the house until Ian gets home at night. That's okay! Ian has to work out of town next week - I'm not sure if I'm quite ready for that, but we'll survive! He is such a wonderful dad and does so much to take care of the baby. I have more photos to post, but my desktop computer crashed the other day and it has all the photos on I'll work on that when I can!

Home Sweet Home!

Oliver has been home for almost a week now and we are starting to adjust to the family life...
He received his last antibiotics at 4am Wednesday August 27th, and we were home by noon that day! We spent a few hours giving Oli the tour, introducing him to Brick (our rottweiler), and napping. We went to Aunt Bonnie's and Uncle Chad's for dinner and cake for Grandpa Tony's birthday.
Saturday night we all went down to Lake Red Rock for the grand opening of Uncle Mat's bar. Oliver slept right through the live band - probably because I went to several concerts the last month I was pregnant! He met a lot of people that night but he wasn't too interested in them. :)
Monday evening we went to Bonnie & Chad's again for dinner. Today Oli went with us to the dentist, then he had his 2 week check up with his pediatrician. He is up to 9 lbs, 3 oz already! Doctor Schutte said everything looks good and he won't have to see another doctor til 2 months!
Oliver has been sleeping fairly well - although lately he likes to stay up from about 10pm to 2am, he then sleeps well in either his cradle or our bed, only waking up to eat and fall right back to sleep. Ian is amazing with him - and I'm so glad he's sharing the late-night feedings, because I can get pretty crabby with no sleep! I am hoping he doesn't have to work out of town anytime soon, I'm not quite ready to handle the nights alone!
I'll keep adding photos, check out the links to the left!
