Happy 9 months!

Dear Oliver,

I can't believe that you are already 9 months old! It is crazy to think of life before you came, your dad and I must have sat around so lonely and bored. You have brought such joy to our lives. I never knew that I could love someone as much as I love you. Being your mom is the best job that I have ever had! You are growing so quickly that its hard to keep up with all the stages! Here are a few of your many accomplishments in the last 9 months:
You are crawling everywhere! I can't take my eyes off you for a second. You pull yourself up on every surface, your favorite places being the tub, the coffee table, and my legs. You already have 8 teeth, that are very sharp I might add. You have have a very good appetite and have taken to baby food very well. You heart cheerios and vegetables are your absolute favorite. You say "dadadadada" and "mmmmama". And most importantly you have been sleeping through the night since you were 6 months!


I love you so much and want to thank you for being the very bestest baby a mom could ask for.


Love, Mommy

(To our readers: Thank you for letting me be a bit cheesy and sentimental!)

I still can't believe how big he is! He really is precious Nicole. Isn't it fun to watch them grow?

You have every right to brag about little Oliver. He is adorable! It's so fun for me to observe all my friends with their little kids. I learn so much from you.

He is so cute. That face is just too sweet! I think every mom gets a little cheesy and sentimental every once in awhile ;)

Oh, and his lashes are to die for! Why wasn't I born with lashes like that?

if he wasn't so lovable and cute....I think I'd found this a little cheesier...but it's ok Nicole....because my mom did the same thing to me...as far as I know...and kept them and put them in my baby scrapbook that she made.....

So I guess welcome to the mothering club or something......

Oliver....you just keep doing your thing man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ROCK ON LITTLE DUDE.....ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
