First real food!!!!

Oliver's first bite of real food. It was rice cereal! I guess it is more like liquid rice cereal.
The follow through. Dad is doing such a great job feeding him. I think he wants more...

In his mouth dad, not on his face. haha!

After a long day of trying new food, we get a break to snuggle together and read a bedtime story.
A little silly time. Daddy left the camera on the bed!

Oliver is sick!

Well, we made it through our first illness! We had family in town for the baptism and so far a total of 4 people got sick including Oliver. He woke up coughing and then spiked a fever of 103.4. I became one of "those mothers" and paged the doctor at 6:00 in the morning. We got his fever down and finally after 3 days is feeling better. No more fever and no more medicine with side effects. (night time insomnia) Thank goodness!! During the day, all he wanted to do was sleep and it didn't matter where. Here he is crashed out on the couch.

Saint Michael's Church
The entire family posing for a picture with the newly baptized baby boy.
Aunt Christy (Godmother), Uncle Kevin (Godfather), Mindy and Larry. We took the bottle away for the picture.
Monsignor O'Connell holding Oliver. He is such a wonderful priest. He (as you will see in another picture) had Oliver giggling through the service.
The blessing of the father.
Sprinkling of the holy water.
Oliver giggling. He loves Msgr. O'Connell!
Larry, Mindy and Oliver after the baptism. Oliver made it almost all the way through without a peep. Good thing we had a bottle ready to go.

Baptism Party

Oliver is sitting next to his cupcake cake. This is a close up of his baptism outfit. Look how cute that little tie is.
Here are the little shoes and socks that he wore.

Although he can't read yet, he has found a good way to use the bible. Good thing it is still wrapped in the plastic...drool proof!

Oliver holding his rosary. It was a gift from Aunt Christy, his godmother.

The family is here to visit!!!

Grammy Pam holding Oliver.

Grandad John with Oliver.

Ryan and Oliver riding the "horsey". Larry is a tall horse!

The entire family playing Wii. Who is next to do the double points dance? Anyone still sore?


Aunt Christy and Oliver dancing at the store. Oliver loves to go shopping! I guess he is just used to it!

Mindy, Christy, and Oliver shopping at Dress Barn. We were watching both grandmas try on clothes. They went on a shopping spree!

Bolier Up!!

I just couldn't pass up posting this picture. It is a true representation of how much he loves to smile! (even while wearing Purdue clothing.)

4 months

Oliver's 4 month picture. It is getting harder to take pictures of him. Instead of sitting still, he likes to move around.

We love Ronald!!

Oliver and Ryan sitting with Ronald McDonald. Amanda and Mindy decided to take the boys to McDonald's so that Ryan could play in the huge play area. (Maybe the mom's just needed time out of the house.) The statue of Ronald was just too easy to pass up with the camera.

Fun at home

These are just some candid shots of Oliver having fun at home.

He loves his chewy dog, Spot. We don't go anywhere without him. Right now, he is more interested in his ears than the teether paws.

Jumping in the bouncer or should I say smiling in the bouncer?

Super Bowl Sunday

Although it is Super Bowl Sunday and we should be rooting for a NFL team, Larry and Oliver are decked out in their favorite college team gear. Boiler Up!!
