Smiley weekend

I finally got the big grin picture!

Oliver has seriously won me over. He's changing every day and finding his little voice. I love talking to him and him coo back to me.

This weekend we went to Miami to visit my mom (Gigi), and to show off Ollie to the hometown folk at church and at my mom's school. It was fun. Everyone loved him and he charmed them all. The weekend was also good for Brady and me. We were able to get a little more sleep with mom's help and eat delicious food at Guayo's and the Copper Bistro. It was very relaxing and Brady was able to be handy and fix mom's door. He loves doing stuff like that.

Oliver is 8 weeks today! And so stinkin' CUTE! Look at that picture!

The Blessing!

Oliver's blessing day was on March 13. Everything went great and he didn't cry at all. We also loved having all of our family there, and some good friends, to support us.

Note: I know Oliver looks like a total nerd in those pants.

With all my grandparents, the great grandparents

With friends Katharine and Brian

Oliver also had a Dr. visit that week. He weighed 11lbs. 5.5 oz., the 75% percentile, and is 24 1/2 in. long, the 97% percentile! Yeah, he's tall.

I also had a Dr. appointment. I've lost 20 lbs since the birth, only 20 to go to get to my pre-preggo weight. *sigh* Oh, and my midwife said that I'm her hero. Yeah me. :)

He's 4 weeks old! One month?...

Oliver is 4 weeks old today. One month I guess, one short February month. When I asked him today "how old are you?" He gave me this:
He's trying to say "one". See?

He's been doing great and is getting better with the sleep at night thing, except last night. He only wanted to scream at our faces last night. Anyways, he's keeping us on our toes and very busy. Parenthood is definitely a full time job. We're getting better at leaving the house, but sometimes we forget things, like a stroller. A mistake we'll never make again.

Oliver continues to get cuter every day. Shocker I know, he's already very stinkin' adorable. He's beginning to smile! It's so cute, and it doesn't happen a whole lot so I don't have a picture to prove it, but it won't be long before I fill my camera's memory card full of his toothless grin. And he has dimples! Eek! Something to melt the ladies hearts with. You're welcome ladies. ;)

I don't have much more new news about Oliver or us, so here are some pictures.

Dad doing what dad does best, make the kid sleep!

At church for the first time. Blue eyes!

Sleeping after his lunch on Sunday.

Just chillin on a Monday afternoon.

So I mentioned before that Oliver has to sleep in his bouncer because of his reflux. Well we never buckled him in because he doesn't move enough to fall out or anything. We'll maybe it's time to start buckling because yesterday morning, Brady found him like this:
How funny is that? I thought it was hilarious.

As promised, here are a few pictures I took when he was about 2 weeks old. He never really acted like a newborn, so I didn't get the pictures that I had hoped for and I couldn't get elaborate at all like I did with my friend Chandra's baby pictures I did last year. This first picture is a testament to how the shoot went.
The face that keeps me awake at night.

Eating his hand, that's so Oliver!
