Snow Days

This past week was a long one! It started off with snow. ALOT of snow. So much snow that schools were cancelled for both Monday and Tuesday, which means daycare was cancelled as well. This was actually good timing as Oliver decided to not feel so good when he woke up on Monday. So, we have been battling the sniffles all week. He seems to be on the mend now, although the sniffles are making their way up the family I fear. Par for a winter's work, I suppose.
Anyhoo, this past week also marked 7 months for Oliver. He has been doing tons of growing recently. Here is a rundown of his latest and greatest skills:

  • Sits up totally by himself - steady 90% of the time
  • Rolls over both ways - now rolls over to reach for an object
  • Can pick up anything, and I do mean anything in a split second, using his thumb in addition to fingers
  • Babbles up a storm
  • Knows his name
  • Champion oatmeal eater and has been introduced to pretty much all veggies and fruits now
  • Has 2 teeth!
  • Loves to stand - will stand all day if we let him, and can stand unassisted while holding onto something like the ottoman.
  • Sleeps through the night at a consistent 10 hours straight - has gone 12 hours a few times
There's lots more to add to the list but I don't want to boast about his advancedness too much. :)
Still no crawling. I think he really might just start walking what with all the standing he does.
Okay, that's it for this installment. I leave you with some pics of one of Aunt Meghan's Christmas gifts to Oliver. The cutest, coziest winter outfit ever.


  1. Oh my! Teeth!!! I bet you get some cute toothy grins! :)

  2. Hmmmm.....I hear he doesn't like avocado, though! ;-)
