A couple videos...

First, a short video that I can't stop laughing at- although I feel bad about it.

So here's another one that's cute and NOT making fun of Oliver (you've gotta have the sound on for this one!):

1 down...8 to go!

We love our big families. We really love being so close to everyone - grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles (including greats- and great-greats!). But sometimes it's overwhelming! We have eight Christmas get-togethers this year. Plus our own at home on Christmas morning. Eight!!! Leslie told me, "That must be really nice, or insane." It's both. But today was so fun and Oli did so well, I'm sure the rest of this holiday season will be a breeze. We had Christmas lunch with Ian's great-grandma McKnabb and her family. That's right, Oliver is lucky enough to know his great-great-grandmother!
He had a very short nap on the car ride there, and played like a mad man for three and a half hours, and was out cold before we got out of the parking lot. We got home at 4, brought him into his room, and he continued to sleep til 5:30 - which meant mama got a nap, too!
Now if he can just keep doing this eight more times....

Boy or Girl?

Last night I noticed that on the poll to the right, Boy had finally pulled ahead! Yay! But then, this morning it was tied up again.
I'm telling's a boy. (But will admit if I'm wrong!)

Things To Say To A Pregnant Woman (Regarding Her Looks)

1. You look great!
2. You look wonderful!
3. You look beautiful!
4. You are glowing!
5. You look fabulous!

If you want to say something that's not on this list, or not very similar to something on this list....don't say it. It's just better for everyone.

New Camera = New Belly Photo!

I finally went out and got a new camera - just a cheap one for now so the pics aren't that great. But, here is my newest belly shot - I think it's 28 weeks. I can't keep track. Anyway, we have about three months to go!

Oliver has been working on some molars all weekend - I'm not sure how many. Today I could finally feel one little pointy tooth on his left side, and bumps on the right. He was never too bad with his front teeth, but these back ones are really bugging him! He's had a low fever all weekend and just been cranky. And very restless at night, no one has been sleeping well. Poor baby! So he has been cuddling on the couch a lot the past few days, which is rare - he is usually always on the go! So this is his "I don't feel good" look:

But, it is still not stopping him from climbing on everything he can reach.

Snow fun!

I finally got Oliver some snowpants and boots, so we spent a little time walking around the neighborhood today. I think we spent more time getting his snow gear on than we did outside, though. The photos aren't great because they're from my phone - I still haven't replaced my broken camera.

15 months!

Oliver had his 15 month check-up a couple weeks ago (I'm a little slow on the updates lately!). He weighs 22 pounds 6 ounces, and is 31 inches tall. That's more than half as tall as me!
I don't have any recent photos dead camera.
