Easter!

Well we have now hit the first holiday for Oliver – Easter! It was a pretty eventful day with all of the things going on at our church and with the family gathering for lunch. It was a lot of fun to get together with everyone and as you can see above we kind of went crazy with pictures.  Oliver got to hang out with his cousins – especially his neighbor & cousin Jonah. So you will see some funny pictures of them laying next to each other. The parents had nothing to do with this ;)  but someday it will be really cool to see them playing together as friends along with Bella and Micah too.  Oliver was held by a few different family members as well and basically passed out for the day. I’ve never seen him so tired in one day.  One thing he loves more than anything else is to be held – so with people constantly offering to hold him he was held for the most part of the day – which meant he was asleep that whole time. So I guess you could say right now we have kind of a boring baby – until he gets home – then he will stay awake and cry a lot more often :). By the way, the two pictures of the bunnies are pets of my dad’s. His birthday was this past Friday so as a present to himself he went out and bought another bunny. He loves those animals – so it was fitting that on Easter Sunday we had two bunnies hopping around. The first one was named Snowball & the 2nd (newest one) was named Smores – both by my niece Bella – who if you will notice in one of the first few pictures is making a weird face. She just lost one of her front teeth & was excited to go on the easter egg hunt to get chocolate. That way she can lose all the rest of her teeth soon too.

Annie’s parents have come by several times since we’ve been home from the hospital and we’ve really enjoyed hanging out with them and watching them interact with Oliver. Every time they come over they are always looking for ways to help out and Ken is always ready to pray for any need that arises right on the spot. It’s funny to see how much love they have for Oliver after only knowing him for a little while & it seems to be so natural and easy – it’s the same way with my parents & really both of our families. It’s amazing that God gives us the ability to love so quickly. One thing that I though was kind of funny was recently when Jo or Nana came over for dinner she was holding Oliver in one hand and trying to eat in the other. Both Annie & I offered to put him in his bassinet so he could sleep & so she could eat, but she wasn’t having that. She would rather hold him and be inconvenienced with other things than not hold him. His Nana and Pappy are very proud to call him their grandson. Above are some pictures from those visits.

Cousins!

Oliver has several cousins that are fairly close together in age and he was visited by all but one recently. Oliver has two cousins through my brother Dave & sister in law Beth – they have a daughter named Bella & a son named Micah. He also has a cousin through my sister Abby & her hubby Erik – they have a son named Jonah who is only about 5 months older than Oliver. Last but not least Oliver has a cousin through Annie’s sister Heidi & hubby William – they have a son Trey. Since Heidi and William live in Macon, GA they weren’t able to visit Oliver yet but we are looking forward to seeing them as soon as we can & seeing how Trey and Oliver interact with each other. Oliver was able to meet Bella, Micah and Jonah and here are some pictures from those visits.

Oliver’s many faces

I know some of you are looking at all of these pictures and posts and thinking – man they are totally obsessed. If you are thinking that then you are correct & we aren’t ashamed of it either. The reason for these pictures is that Oliver has gotten so squirmy lately and he’s incorporating a ton of new faces each and every day. One day recently I decided I was going to try and document as many faces as I could and here are the pictures from a photo “session” so to speak. Enjoy!

Look what I found

The other day Oliver was back in our bedroom having some nice awake time. I left the room to get something from the bathroom really quick and when I came back I found him with my video game controller in his hands. At first he had his mittens on to protect him from scratching himself, so when I saw that I took them off & he went to town on the controller. See for yourself – this is definitely my boy. He likes sports & video games already.

Nap time!

I came back into our bedroom the other day and found Jon and Oliver fast asleep on our bed.  This seems to be a favorite past-time that they both have in common:).  It was so cute to see them sleeping there together, so as you can see I took the opportunity to take some father/son photos.  It has been so much fun to have our new little family together these past two weeks and such a huge blessing to have Jon home with me.  His transition into daddy mode has been very natural and beautiful to watch.  I always knew that Jon would make an amazing father, and it has been really amazing to see that come to fruition.  Oliver is very blessed to have Jon as his daddy.  I am excited to watch their relationship grow as Oliver continues to get bigger.

Pillowcase

I was watching Ollie and he was kind of cranky. It seemed like no matter what position he was in he would cry, so I decided to try to put him in a pillowcase. I let him rest his body on the pillow & thought it might be nice for him to be kept warm by the pillowcase. Believe it or not he actually liked it and stopped crying. Annie thought it was funny to see his little head sticking out and took the above pictures. If you look closely you will see that Ollie’s completely inside of the pillowcase aside from his head. So try it yourself – you may like it too, but I guess you’ll need to find a bigger pillow :).
