Apparently I'm on a blogging break. It's not intentional...it's just life. I never thought that much would change when Oliver came along, but it has. I wouldn't trade my afternoons/weekend time with him and Owen for anything, and one day I hope to post more frequently.
We have three full memory cards, and I'm currently trying to muster up the energy to dive in and get them backed up and cleared off. It's sad, but we have all these scrapbooks filled with photos of Owen and we have zero with photos of Oliver. ZERO! We have taken pictures, but haven't done anything with them yet. I used to blog during a free moment at work, but now they have blocked all storage devices (memory cards and usb's) so that's a no-go.
I've said it before, but I do post on Instagram, so you can follow me on there. Or you can just come here and see my pics on the right sidebar.
Oliver did turn one almost two weeks ago, and we had a great party with family and friends in our backyard. We finally got to break-in Owen's swingset and luckily it held up even with the weight of 500 kids on top. He also had his one year appt with Dr. P and everything is good. He is a little guy at just over 20 pounds. He has one tooth on top and two about to break through on the bottom. He is starting to take steps on his own. I think we've counted about seven or eight in a row. He's going for his first haircut on Friday, so those baby curls are probably a thing of the past. They were cute while they lasted.
Owen is enjoying his last year of preschool. He went to the corn maze last week and is super excited about Halloween tomorrow night. He wore his Batman costume from last year to the Ghost Walk on Saturday night, but he's actually going to be a fireman this year thanks to Sam. He lent Owen his costume and Owen likes it so much he wanted to wear it on Halloween. Mission accomplished! Oliver is going to wear Owen's first costume which was a turtle.
Ok...so that's about it for now. Oh! We are going to Disney pretty soon and it will be our first time leaving Oliver for any length of time. We are all excited to go, but have mixed emotions about leaving him at home. When we left Owen at home when Brig had a work conference in Orlando he got sick and we almost had to come home. Fingers crossed that it's smooth sailing for all of us.
