What a Year it Has Been!

I can't believe I am actually sad to see 2008 go, it has been such an amazing year!

We started the year (well, actually the very end of 2007) by finding out that I was pregnant. We couldn't have been more excited(or so we thought:). In March we found out that we were having a little boy, and in May had my beautiful baby shower hosted by our dear friends Megan and Janice.

June brought our anniversary, my dad's 60th birthday, my sister's b-day, and my nephew Matthew's 5th birthday.

July brought my sister and her family back to California and they even lived in Fresno for a while.

Then came August....the most exciting month of them all. On August 3rd Oliver made his appearance into the world. Then if we weren't busy enough with a newborn, we decided to go out and buy a house.

November brought us moving into our new house, then 4 days later I came back to work full time. We have been very lucky with who watches Oliver during the week. Monday's and Tuesday's he goes to a family friend(who he loves), Wednesday's Joey is home, then Thursday's and Friday's my mom comes over and watches him.

December hit us fast and was gone just as fast. With Christmas Eve and Christmas and trying to get the house ready we blinked and the month (and year) was already over.

I can't wait to see what 2009 brings us. We look forward to a wedding in Hawaii (yeah Megan, I am so excited!!!) and a little boy who gets bigger every day.

Merry Christmas from Oliver!

Tonight we went to Riverpark to get Oliver's picture taken with Santa. He did great, didn't even cry, and held on to his beard the entire time. When we walked in I saw a guy I went to high school with, he was the photographer. After he printed the pictures he slipped in a CD with all the pictures that he took!

Oliver's First Day at the Babysitter

Yesterday was Oliver's first day with Kim, the babysitter. Joey dropped him off at about 8:30 and picked him up at around 5. Normally I will be picking him up, but Joey got off early so he went ahead and got him.

Kim said that he did very well. He took 2 very good naps and sat in the swing and watched her kids play. She has a 2 year old, 4 year old, and 7 year old. The 2 year old, Ethan, loves Oliver! I guess when Ethan woke up from his nap the first thing he asked his mom was, "Where is Oliver?" She also said that while she was feeding him he kept on smiling at her and making cute cooing noises. Also, when I came home from work, he was nothing but smiles.

I am so happy that he is happy there. We interviewed another lady and I was not happy at all(neither was Joey), so I was really afraid and nervous about sending him to someone. I am actually really good friends with Kim's younger sister, Meredith. I not only worked with Meredith but I also worked with her brother Jonathan, so I have known the family for a couple years.
