Oliver tries to tip his straw cup up when he drinks from it like a sippy cup, but it doesn’t work that way. So, the other day I told him to hold the cup down. For the rest of the evening he would put his cup down between his knees and bend over to drink from it! haha so confused
He has this new face he makes when he’s surprised or excited about something. See below.
Oliver has the worst skinned knees of any kid I know. He falls down constantly, rarely getting upset about it. Today they look really bad. I need to buy him knee pads!
Oliver is really starting to talk and has put words together a couple of times. He thinks anything round and red is an “ah-el” (apple). Today at the park he wanted to get up on the play structure and said, “Up mommy.” Today when he was trying to get my attention he said, “Mama, mama, mama,” and when I didn’t look at him he switched to, “mommy, mommy, mommY”
We really like his “where” hands.
This morning when I went in to get him from his crib I walk talking to him and telling him I loved him. He didn’t make a sound but showed me everything in his crib. Then I said something about daddy being at work and he said, “Daddy?” He reached up for me to pick him up and then made his “where” hands and looked around for daddy. 🙂 He LOVES his daddy.
Stephen was rubbing my foot the other day so Oliver came over and rubbed the other one.
Oliver is really into hugging other kids. This photo below is of him hugging Aiden and it’s pretty typical for how his hugs go. They are long and usually unanticipated or undesired by the other party 🙂 lol He has now fallen down with two kids because he was hugging them too long and they tried to get away.
At church on Sunday he got really upset when he fell down hugging a friend who of course started crying cause he hit his head pretty hard. I couldn’t shake the feeling Oliver was upset was because he felt really bad and wanted the other little boy to forgive him. Nothing would make him happy until the other little boy started running back toward him smiling a few minutes later. Oliver got a huge smile on his face and ran at him… to give him another hug. The whole thing repeated and we just had to leave lol. Poor little guy just loves people.
Oliver likes to put glasses on his face and carry bags around like mommy and daddy. Haha Stephen is going to die when he sees I posted this photo 🙂
