Back to Work:(

Last Wednesday was my first day back to work since having Oliver. As much as I was ready to go back, it was still hard to leave him. Although, I was not away from him all day. I went home for lunch and Joey brought him by my work. I think it is going to work out pretty good with daycare. Monday and Tuesdays he will go to the babysitter(a good friend of mine's sister will be watching him), Wednesday Joey will be home, and then on Thursdays and Fridays my mom will come over to watch him.

Yesterday when I came home for lunch I got some very exciting news...Oliver rolled over! My mom had him on his play mat doing some tummy time and he rolled from belly to back on the left side! When I got home from work he did it for me 4 times! So I ran to get the video camera to capture it on film, and of course, he didn't do it. He did the same thing this morning for Joey. I think he gets too interested in the camera to do anything else.

We moved into our house on the 15th and we are slowly getting things put away. The house is looking a little plain. We need to paint and get window treatments downstairs so once we do that it will look more warm and inviting.

Tomorrow we are having a small game night so some family and friends can see the house. Then I am off for 4 days for Thanksgiving! Joey's mom will be in town on Saturday so we will spend all day with her. I know she is not going to belive how big Oliver is now! We might even get his picture taken with Santa!

Quick Update

I know it has been a while since I posted last, but I need to make this one a quick one.

We get the keys to the new house on Friday and we are SO excited!!! Right now our house is a disaster as there are boxes everywhere! The movers are going to be coming Saturday morning and hopefully we can get everything moved in one trip. All last week and all this week we have been packing up the house. Although it is hard with Oliver so we have been doing most of the packing once he goes to bed.

I got some really cute pictures of him the other morning, but the cord to the camera is packed away, so it will have to wait till we get in the new house. Oh, and AT&T can't come out till November 29th, so as of this Sunday, we will not have internet for a while. I will try and post another update before our internet gets cut off.

We Voted!

This morning I got Ollie all ready to go voting for the first time.

I was thinking that there was going to be a really long line, and came prepared with a book and all, but to my surprise, there was not one person waiting in line. I walked right up, got my ballot, and voted. It was so easy I couldn't believe it.

Ollie slept through me voting, but did I got him a sticker. I forgot to take my camera, but I did take a picture as soon as we got home.

3 Months Old

I can't believe today Oliver is 3 months old today. It seems like every day he is getting so big and doing new things.

He smiles a ton, coos, holds on to things like his blanket and pacifier, and is sitting up with assistance. His personality is also coming out more and more every day. Even though he currently has his first cold, he is still a happy little guy!

Oliver's First Halloween:) and first Cold:(

My happy little skeleton

In his cute outfit from Megan!

Yesterday was Oliver's Halloween and the start of his first cold. Poor baby is so congested and sure enough I woke up this morning with a sore throat and sneezing like crazy.

I didn't dress Oliver up as anything this year, just some cute onesies that he got from Megan and Joey's mom. We started off the day with a doctor's appointment for myself. My mom went with us to help me with Oliver while I was in with the doctor. Then it was off to Target and then Chili's for lunch. After lunch we dropped my mom back off at home then it was nap time.

Once Joey got home from work we ate dinner then it was off to Joey's dad's for some tricker treating! We stayed there for a while, but Oliver was so tired and we still had to stop by my parents. As soon as we got home Oliver crashed and didn't wake up till 7:45!

We are now lounging at home in our pj's. I do need to get my butt up and ready for the day as we need to run some errands.
