We've had a rough week being sick, and had to miss a few fun Halloween parties. I was pretty bummed. We were all going to dress up - me as Dorothy, Oliver as the cowerdly lion, Sam as the tin man, and Andy as a scarecrow, but I didn't finish all of the costumes, maybe next year? I did manage to finish Oliver's costume, so we took him trick-or-treating for the first time and boy, did he get the hang of it. It's a good thing he was so adorable because he kept asking for more, which to me seems greedy, but the people couldn't resist and treated him to lots of candy.

On a side note: Oliver was not happy to dress up. We basically had to pin him down and use brute force, but in the end I think we would all agree it was worth it! Happy Halloween.

Oliver is Two!

It has been 2 great years with Oliver. He is smart and fun and loves to laugh. He is learning to imitate us and get dressed and undressed by himself. He loves helping us do whatever we are doing - whether it's dishes, cooking, repairing things around the house, cleaning the bathroom, putting on my makeup, vacuuming, doing laundry... he likes to help with everything! He is very talkative. I hear him put 4 word phrases together. For instance he likes to quote from his favorite show, Kipper, "wait for the milk! wait for the milk!" He makes us laugh. I just can't imagine life without him. Happy birthday Oliver!
