He is clapping in this one- its kinda hard to tell :)

And here are some pictures of Oliver playing outside in front of our house! He loved the leaves, and even found a big stick to wave around.

Fall and Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at Tom and Mom's house this year. Kathryn and I went early to help and Ben came later with Ollie, since he needed a nap first. I ended up feeling pretty sick all morning, so mostly I "supervised." We had a delicious dinner and apple pie for dessert!

And the picture...

Oops, forgot to include the latest in belly pictures... 10 weeks! (I am 12 weeks now, I need to catch up a bit) I have actually lost a few pounds, so I am not quite this size anymore, except at night. Oh well, Thanksgiving will fix that!

Midwife Appt

I went to see our midwife today with Ollie and my mom. It was so nice to have her there and finally be able to spend some time at the Birth Center when it wasnt all chaotic. I got my blood drawn, which I was very brave about, and we finally got to hear the little bean's heartbeat! It was so awesome, very strong and fast in the 160s. Maybe we will have another boy after all...Everything seems healthy, I just have to work thru this morning sickness and get to the good part of being pregnant!
Last week was very hectic. Ben got really sick, and turns out he got the dreaded Swine Flu. So we raced around and got vaccinations for Ollie and I, and luckily we are fine, and Ben is back at work feeling much better. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving, and getting in a HUGE meal. And then pie after that! Yes!

15 Month Appointment

Ollie had his 15 month appt, a bit late, but we finally got in to see the doctor. He is 27 lbs and 32" tall! He is in about the 70th percentile all around. He got a few shots, and has been kind of grumpy and clingy since then, but I think today he was starting to feel better. He is actually starting to notice when they do them, which makes it a bit harder :( But he was a trooper! Tonight we shared a meatball sub for dinner while Daddy was at school, and he ate more than I did! He is such a big boy!

Little Lion

Happy Halloween everyone! We dressed up Ollie but didn't go trick-or-treating this year, since he can't eat the candy yet :) He was the cutest lion, and LOVED his costume. He even got upset when we had to take it off! I hope everyone had a fun Halloween!
