Anyone that is a parent probably knows what those four letters stand for. If you are not a parent it stands for Sleeping Through The Night!!! And that is what Oliver did last night, at exactly 8 weeks old.

Yesterday was a very busy, but very fun day. It started out with going to Lauren's bridal shower at Pangea. Tim and Lauren's wedding is quickly approaching, in about 3 weeks. I decided last minute to bring Oliver since Joey's mom, sister, and aunt were going to be there and haven't seen him since he was 2 weeks old. We got to Pandea at about 11:30 and the bridal shower started about a half hour later. We had a very nice lunch and then Lauren started opening gifts. Joey's mom, sister, and aunt traded off holding Oliver. Even though it was hot, it was a very nice shower. We then headed to my parents to get ready for Megan and Keola's engagement party.

The engagement party started at 5:00 and was absolutely beautiful! It was held in her aunt and uncle's backyard that was just redone. Ron and Marti came down from Santa Cruz and this was their first time seeing Oliver. As soon as Marti saw Oliver she took him and I only saw him once for the rest of the night. After Marti held him Paul, Megan's cousin took over.

Since he slept most of the night I was a little worried how well he would sleep in the middle of the night. We got to my parents about 9:30, I fed him at about 10:00 and he fell asleep again. When we got home we put him straight to bed and then went to bed ourselves. This is where it gets exciting...He didn't wake up until 5:00. Still early for me, but I would consider that sleeping through the night! I fed him and he slept till 8:15.

Today was pretty much a lazy day. Mike, Janice, Matt, Megan, and Keola came over on their way to the train station to drop Matt off. They stayed and visited for about 2 hours since Matt's train was leaving at 2:10 for LA.

We took Kate, Eric, and the boys over to our house for them to see the model and to show them ours. They have done a lot to the house and it should be done in about a month. I got a lot more pictures, but it is late so I will post them tomorrow.

Day at the Car Show

Today was a beautiful day! We spent the day at the Cam Twisters car show at River Park. Every year they have a huge car show at the top of the parking garage. For the past couple years we have gone and today was Ollie's first car show! Mom, Ollie, and me got there at around 9:30 and found my dad and then looked for Peggy Cook to show her Ollie. There are about 200 cars or so most of them classic cars and some new ones, including my dad's 2001 corvette. At the show there are a ton of prizes that they raffle off all of the proceeds going to F.E.A.T., an autism charity.

Although I didn't win anything we still had a great time.

1 Month Old

I can't believe my little boy is already a month old! According to this picture it is very tiring turning a month.

Today we had a very exciting day. Today me and Joey went to the house and signed a ton of papers and are now under contract for our new house. I thought that we were going to go to the design center and pick out all of our upgrades, but we have to wait till next week. Joey leaves for Vegas on Sunday for work, but will be back Thursday morning so we will go then.

I uploaded some more pictures on Olivers site, check them out!

So Much to Catch Up On

So I know it has been a while since I posted a update, but things have been a little crazy around here. Since Joey went back to work a couple weeks ago, I have been hanging out with my mom a lot of the time. She has come over a couple days during the week in the mornings so I have a chance to get ready for the day while she watches Oliver. He is usually good during the morning, but it seems like every time I would get out of the shower and go to put on my makeup he would start screaming! So it has been a great help for my mom to be here to watch Oliver, and plus, she loves spending time with him.

Another piece of exciting news is that me and Joey bought our first house! It is in the process of being built so it won't be ready for about 2 months, but we get to pick out any upgrades that we want. We are going to the design center tomorrow to pick everything out. We can't wait for it to be ready. After living in an apartment it is going to be so nice to have our own home to do whatever we want to it. It is 2 story, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/4 baths, plus a loft, with 1818 sq feet. And we will be in before Christmas so this year Christmas is at our house! We will be going to the home site all the time to check on the progress, so I will be posting pictures as it comes along.

That is pretty much all that has been going on here. The next couple months is going to be very crazy, with Joey going to Vegas for work on Sunday, 3 birthdays, a bridal shower, a engagement party, a wedding, and the house.
