So I realized I haven't blogged about Oliver in a while. As in, tell about what he does, interests, tricks, quirks. He's changing so much every day so I need to record some stuff.
As you can see in the top picture, he makes faces. He started doing the strained smile randomly a few weeks ago, it always makes us laugh.
He'll eat anything.
He loves when we jump out of nowhere to scare him. He always screams.
He now gives hugs and kisses.
When he hugs, he squeezes our shoulders and does the hand tapping thing. It's a sweet feeling.
We're teaching him how to throw a ball and he's kind of starting to get it.
He's taller than most kids a few months older than him.
Words we think he says, Mama, Dada, Hi, Hello (maybe).
Loves technology and only wants to play with stuff related to it.
Still loves books.
Favorite shows: "The Cat in the Hat, Knows A Lot about That" and "Sesame Street's Elmo's World". Sometimes he gets sucked into "Super Why".
He does not care for "Curious George", book or TV show, which is fine, because it's not my favorite either.
Still likes "Yo Gabba Gabba", but only the parts with the Gabbaland characters. No music videos for him.
He loves the opening credits to "Parks and Recreation".
Hates wearing shoes and socks.
Expert whiner and begs for food.
He's starting to open doors, like the raptors in Jurassic Park.
Tries climbing on the couch all the time but only gets up on his own about 25% of the time.
He carries his favorite blanket around in his mouth, no hands required.
After a 3+ month break, he finally has more teeth coming in.
Now here are some pictures from our picnic on Friday at Kiwanis Park.
