My cheesy boy!

This is Oliver's new "cheesy" face! Whenever we get the camera out, he has this smile.

We are taking family pictures on Halloween, and I know he is going to ham it up for the camera. We are going to be up in Walnut Creek that weekend and Joey has an old friend that is a photographer up there. We have been wanting to take family pictures for so long, so we thought that this would be a great time to take them. Also, we have yet to take Oliver's 1st birthday pictures(a little late I know), and since it is Halloween, we will take a couple with him in his costume.

Oh, and tonight while I was brushing his teeth, I noticed he got one of his back upper teeth! We had no idea it even came in!

I just have to put this picture in. Joey took Oliver to the park today, and I just love this picture he got.

Boys will be boys...

Oh my oh my!!! I think I have finally learned that boys will be boys!

On Saturday we were all in the back yard watching Joey BBQ and enjoying the nice night outside. Oliver was exploring the back yard, and decided that it would be fun to play in the flower beds(can you still call it a flower bed if there are not any flowers in it?). I took his shirt off and just let him run around in his diaper. That is when all the fun started!

I took my eyes off of him for 2 seconds(I know I know) and I look over at him and he has a mouth full of dirt! He thought it was so funny. I didn't have my camera outside, so I ran inside to get it. The 30 seconds that it took me to run upstairs and get the camera, I get back outside, and this is what I find!

Joey had taken him over to the other side of the yard to "wash" his hands and thought it would be fun to sit in the mud!

Oh, and it doesn't end there. About a minute later that cute little muddy hand of his went right into his mouth! Mind you this whole time, Joey was cracking up laughing!!!

I stripped him naked and gave him a bath in the kitchen sink.

I have always heard the sang "Boys will be boys", but now I truly know the meaning to it now!

Pumpkin Patch

Tonight after dinner we decided to go to the pumpkin patch. There is one closer to our house off of Palm and Bullard, but we heard that the one off of First and Nees is it is close to Yodigity!

This was Oliver's first time to the pumpkin patch. Last year he was only 3 months old on Halloween, so it would have been kinda a waste to take him being so young.

He loved it out there! He was able to run all over the place and even tried to pick up some very large pumpkins!

Right as we were getting to leave, he met a little girl that was a month younger than him. She was so cute! They were almost the exact same size, and even kinda looked alike!

Oliver was such a great little boy today too! This morning we dropped my mom off at the train station, she was heading up to Walnut Creek to watch the boys since Katie and Eric are going down to Disneyland tomorrow. After the train station we went to Target, we drove past my grandpa's house, went to the grocery store, and then finally came home to have some lunch.

I can't believe how much he is learning everyday. Today he started to say diaper, and I have to say it is so cute to hear him say it. Also, if you tell him it is time to go to bed, he will walk right into his room and point to his crib.

Tomorrow is going to be a lazy day spent around the house. Joe has to go into work for a little bit, so that will give me time to do laundry and clean the house up a bit.
