Today is Tracie's birthday. Happy Birthday T!

What do you suppose this look means?

Not much new to report. Dusty, Lisa and Emmerson have been here this week and have been cooking great meals for us! It's so nice to have good friends around. Emmerson is awesome! She is pulling herself up and laughs all the time! She also puts her index finger in her mouth like she's constantly pondering something. It's probably b/c her tooth is coming in, but it may be that she knows something important that the rest of us overlook...
We got an inch of snow last night! Spring keeps teasing us with a nice day or two and then the snow and wind force us back inside. We're definitely insiders these days anyways.

Emmerson has picked the bookshelf as her favorite spot in our apartment.

Had to take Ollie in for a blood test and he weighed in at 9 pounds already!

Oliver had his two week pediatrician appointment on Friday and he already weighs in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces! He eats like a little monster so this shouldn't really be a surprise to me. Dusty, Lisa and Emmerson are heading from Portland to visit us for the week so we are all excited about that! Hopefully we can set the stage for an arranged marriage between Oliver and Emmerson in oh about 25 years. We are planning to stay in with D, L and E for Easter and make ourselves a good meal and have some quality friend time. I will post more pictures later in the week as I'm sure we'll be taking lot's!

One Week Old

We're celebrating Oliver's one week birthday today. It's insane how much he's been changing every day! Yesterday marked a historic time in our lives when Tracie took a solid stream of urine to the shoulder and the face. I knew that boy had the potential.
Trish has been an amazing help around the house as Tracie continues to get stronger. Tomorrow she leaves for Michigan and we will all definitely miss her presence... Especially Ollie, who seems to burp and pass the gas mostly in her arms. It's that soothing voice of hers. I think she may be moving to Idaho Falls in April.
Trace is on Spring Break this week and I'm truly envious of all the time she gets to spend at home. She's such an amazing Mom!! I'm back to work and having a difficult time focusing on the job. Yesterday I caught myself hovering over my desk swinging my hips like I was trying to put Oliver to sleep in my arms. This was the second time its happened and I'm sure it's normal. I think it's normal?
Anywho, you're here for the pics, so I'll quite rambling...

more Oliver

The blog is going to change names here soon but we will be sure to send out an email to all with the new web address. Be prepared for tons of pictures. Grandma Trish is still here being the biggest help in the world! We moved into a new place this weekend (isn't our timing great?) and her and Grandpa Bob and John moved almost everything in one day! We are settling into the new place just nicely.
