Amanda wrapped this blanket around Oliver and was walking around the house with him. I was amazed at how fast he was going. Amanda is such a genius! Who ever would have thought of that?!?!?!?! As most of you know, your back and arms get sore really fast after walking around with a little person wanting so badly to get from point A to point B by way of walking. This really saves all the muscles (most of them). Amanda watched Oliver while I went to work this past Tuesday. Since Aunt Christy is gone, Amanda gets him back. I think she was excited!!! This wall in the picture was Ryan's and Amanda was so thoughtful to bring it back out for Oliver to play with. I think Ryan is showing Oliver how things work, and of course, Oliver will do anything that Ryan does! Good thing Ryan is a PERFECT little boy because he is Oliver's role model! Maya is hanging out in the bottom of the picture. She just loves her boys!

Oliver LOVES the Roomba! They play together so well and I always know where he is...right behind it. To our surprise, he isn't afraid of it, he actually likes when it comes towards him. He has an opportunity to bang on it, and we have learned that everything that we bang on makes noise.
Even though Ally had a broken leg, is sure didn't stop her from taking the plunge. Okay maybe just a calf.
Mommy and Ollie enjoying time together.
The entire family

Oliver's newest talent is blowing bubbles. As you will see in the video, he puts ALL his effort into it. Most of the time he ends up coughing because he works so hard at it. I assure you that all of the noises in this video are coming from someones mouth!

Papa and Oliver are enjoying that good cup of coffee on the deck. Oliver at least enjoyed the cardboard sleeve that goes over the cup. I am at a blank for the name of it. I am sure someone should be given proper credit for the ingenious invention.
Ally loved to feed him while she was here.
Who is feeding who? I think Papa wants a bite.

Oliver was so interested in everything the cook was doing. He is trying to look over the table to see what he has on the grill.
Larry and Oliver after lunch. Daddy was giving him lots of hugs and kisses before he went back to work.
Aunt Christy sure is enjoying her salad with yum yum sauce! Mmmmm!

Make sure that you visit the restroom before you watch this. I can't believe I held it together to record it! Oliver had his 9 month well-baby visit yesterday and the Doctor said that he needs to eat more. He is in the 10th percentile for his weight. So, instead of feeding him the usual breakfast this morning, we fed him until he didn't want any more. Usually he eats cereal and one half of the Greber Stage 2 food containers. Today he ate a large bowl of oatmeal baby cereal and 2 and a half of the containers. I was shocked! I was waiting for him to tell me that he wanted more but Noggin was on in the background and I guess it was a little more entertaining. Feeding him took a little longer than normal, but as you can see from the video we were fighting sleepiness too! It is very precious!
The fireworks began! From the picture you can see how close we were. It was almost scary! We had pieces of cardboard from the fireworks falling on us the whole time! Don't worry, they weren't on fire but next year we may bring safety goggles in addition to the ear protection! It was so much fun hearing the BOOM when each one was lit!
More pics of Oliver and Mommy. Aunt Christy was sooo good with her camera! Daddy and Oliver. He got very squirmy and daddy came in with the relief hold!
Oliver decided that he wanted to eat during the fireworks. Thank goodness it was dark and I had a blanket! whew! After eating he was very sleepy! I can't believe that he fell asleep with all of that noise. It ended up being a very fun day!
And he awoke shortly after we parked the car.
Larry and Christy patiently waiting for the weather to clear up so we could enjoy some big boomers (not thunder boomers)!
Ollie and I all snuggled up and ready for the fireworks to begin. We were right on the water and the storm that had just passed made the temperature drop a couple of degrees and it was kind of chilly. Luckily, I had my favorite little boy to snuggle up with to keep me warm!
A funny picture of us still waiting.
Finally the fireworks began!
