O learned a new trick this week: the tripod. Ok, so he has a tendency to lean a little, but he’s upright under his own power. Baby steps.
O has just started to notice himself in mirrors. Makes me wonder what it was like before I knew I was me. It’s a beautiful thing to experience the world again through fresh eyes. Besides, this photo is pretty darn cute.
We got a bunch of books from our friends the Memas before they moved to Sweden. O and Scott have been enjoying the treasure.
I can’t remember life without Oliver, and yet I also don’t feel entirely oriented to life with him. I just started back to work (fading in, three days a week to four, to five (eek– hoping to find a way to negotiate less time at the office– wish me luck!)). Today, I left work, as […]
O’s auntie sent him a book today that he just couldn’t put down. A real page turner. I’ll go ahead and spoil the end: duck.
No joke, this is the first time either of us ever heard him giggle. He was in a particularly good mood so I turned on the video camera and then he started to giggle. Not a lot, but unmistakable. Easily the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. Oliver’s first giggle – caught on tape! from Pixelshot […]
“You wanna piece uh dis?!”
Since O is getting older now, he’s having to live to a new standard. He’s doing well, and right on the mark for all of the “normal” milestones. I mean look at this head lift! That’s some serious strength. 🙂
A few weeks ago, we went to Sandy Point, a beach on the Chesapeake Bay. It was fun and really felt like summer. But it also revealed that Baby O needed some gear for avoiding sun. When we got home I bought him some Baby Banz sunglasses. And a super light UV Blanket. I also […]
Scott is super dad and took O for a shot today. And he sent me a picture (pre-shot)
I have been thinking a lot about clouds. This is a bit bizarre and perhaps these thoughts come from the fact that I am foggy brained from adding work into the new normal of hanging with O and Scott, but I also think that it is a metaphor from nature that can help me navigate. […]
Well, it’s my first full day on Daddy duty. Robin is back at work. So far, so good. Nap, some food, stroll… Now Ollie’s turn.
Our last stop of Ollie-palooza was the Lake Tahoe area. Wow. So beautiful. But alas, the real world calls.
Oliver meets his first birthday buddy. Jack, the taller one, was also born on May 7, a few years ago.
Oliver and fam are hangin in Truckee CA on our last Ollie-palooza tour stop. So, lots more family, including Grandpa Jay.
Well, in the air anyway. Next stop: Truckee CA.
Todd shows Oliver the Los Angeles sites from the deck at the Getty museum. Yes, they even had art there!
Southern California has a way of tiring out even the youngest among us.
Oliver reflecting on his stay in Arizona.
Ollie is always getting the attention.
As we enjoy visiting fam and friends here in Utah, we’re reminded of Oliver Henry’s middle-namesake and great-great-great grandfather Henry Lunt. Henry was present here at the groundbreaking AND the dedication 40 years later of the Salt Lake Temple. Sacred ground.
As it turns out, Oliver has a way with the ladies.
2010 west coast tour. Coming soon to a city near you!
I can’t resist putting up this adorable picture of Ollie (right) and cousin Ansel. The cousins are only two months apart in age and both are serious eaters.
