Real Food & BIG Toys

Ollie started eating real food (rice cereal) this past week! The habitually intense sucking motion that has been his go-to move over the past four months makes using the spoon a bit of a challenge, but he's figuring it out nicely!!

The introduction of new of toys such as the insanely huge Music Motion Activity Jumper has been a popular addition to Ollie's daily entertainment... He absolutely LOVES it! Other than a couple of stubbed toes and the fact that it takes up half of our kitchen space, I think we may just love it too! He laughs hysterically when he catches a glimpse of himself in the little mirror or when he finds a new little noise maker by fully extending his arms and little toes.

Uncle David was secretly persuading Oliver to decide that David would be his first word... We'll see if Ollie learns his middle name before a few other much tougher words like mom, dad or NO.

Our neighbor Alex is in LOVE with Oliver and has expressed interest in waiting the 18 years before he'll be ready for their first date...

Ollie is soooo cute. He is growing up so fast. We are experiencing that with our Hayden too. We still need to hook up with you guys. Hope all is going well.
