Da Bronx

We traveled to the Bronx yesterday to see Pete and Ashley and also to tour the famous Hall of Fame (located on the Bronx Community College campus, which was originally NYU;). I had my doubts about the tour, but it turned out to be awesome - so much US history and best of all it was free! After the tour we ate yummy homemade pizza! Thanks for inviting us - it was so fun!

"I love you Aunt Ashley!"

Lately

I can't believe how quickly it happens... my baby is not a newborn anymore. He plays with toys, eats cereal, smiles, giggles, rolls over... how do I slow it down?


We've been busy lately - my mom visited us for a whole week, we've gone into the city twice in the past 5 days, we've done a lot of shopping - I dragged my mom and Oliver around Jersey Gardens for about 6 hours! We visited Andy at work, ate at Chocolate by the Bald Man - yumm-o (thanks for the recommendation Addy!), visited my old co-workers, started the hunt for new apartments, and have managed to keep up on housework (thanks to my mom while she was here). There have been no dull moments in the past few weeks. Here are some highlights!

Oliver loves this phone from Grandma - it can keep him entertained for a quite a while!

"Ewww... lotion's for girls."

"I'm going to be a missionary some day - and a ladies man..."



We love it when Andy's home!

Grandma brought Oliver an early b-day present - can anyone guess? A Curious George book!

Oliver wanted to hold the glass, so we decided to let him drink out of it - it was soooo cute!

p.s. you might not want to drink out of this cup when I'm done.

Andy said this is his favorite picture - I am of course looking at my pride and joy!

Pictures

Life is going great for us! Oliver continues to grow, Andy continues to balance his busy schedule, and I continue to sharpen my stay at home mom skills - I'm lovin' it!
This picture cracks me up! I love Ollie's big eyes.
Oliver is becoming quite the "mama's boy" and loves to be held by me.

This was from my birthday a while back. Oliver wasn't sure what to think of the bright lights.
My sister took this amazing picture of little Oliver's feet - I love it!
My mom took this picture when she was here visiting - she caught all of us taking a little snooze.

Fabulous and Free from Me!

I just got lucky and won something on a friend's blog and now I am passing it forward. How lucky are you? I double dare you to accept this challenge. This game involves a few of my favorite things: handmade goods, creativity, and gift-giving.

Here are the tagging instructions: The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year. (might be a little while)
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it.
