{33 & happy!}

Yesterday was my (well...."our") 33rd bday. Crazy. It feels like just yesterday that my twin sis & I were turning 23 and just starting to be "grown ups". Now look at us! We've come a long way. I love you sweet sister more than you know. You are my heart and soul. I have learned so much watching you be a mama and am in awe of your patience and mama-abilities. I am SO lucky to have you in my world. xoxoxox

Yesterday my mom came over to watch Oliver so that I could get a pedicure (awesome!!!) and the we all (mom, ali, my josh, & the kiddos) went to the mall for dinner/shopping (heaven - lol). It was a perfect day :) Oh, and it didn't hurt that my sweet husband wrote me a super sweet card and got me a necklace and a Nordstroms gift card too :) woo hoo!!!

Today the celebration continued.....we went to the harbor for brunch...& even our baby (29 yr old) brother Brian came....

...and tonight we are going to dinner in Laguna at a restaurant called "House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer" with some family and friends! :) I am very much looking forward to it!! We are going to bring the little guy because...well.....we want to. It is my birthday after all and he is my little b-day present/dream boat - lol!!

Here are some pictures of our little guy...(5 weeks old)

Sitting in his "nap nanny" recliner looking very serious.....

Getting ready for a diaper change and a bath.....getting so long, but still so skinny (except for that adorable double chin) ;)

..and some adorable bear slippers because I simply couldn't resist :)

{1 month old}

Our little guy is 1 month old - does that sound as crazy to you as it does to me??!! Crazy!!!

Oliver is such a sweet baby. He loves being held and falling asleep in my arms. He is a little "finely tuned" as we like to call it, meaning, if he has to burp -- he -- goes -- crazy -- until he does! And if he has to poop -- he -- goes -- crazy -- until he does ! Poor little guy. I think he has a sensitive little system. This makes for long days & longer nights, being that his life consists of eating, pooping, burping, and sleeping (argh!), but we are hanging in there. We are enjoying every minute that we get to spend together!

xo I am seriously in love!!!

{3 weeks old}

Our baby boy is 3 weeks old today! CRAZY how fast time flies. I know they tell you that it goes by fast, but you don't believe them until you have your own little munchkin!! I literally feel like I just had him yesterday...but I also feel like he's been here forever.

I know I wasn't much of a "craft/furniture/project" blogger anyway, but I promise that this blog won't only be about being a new mommy. I will get back to doing things that I like to do (besides sitting with my little man, staring at him in amazement - LOL) and blogging about them at some point soon.....

BUT...for are some pictures of Oliver :)

We went to the Dana Point Harbor for ice cream and a walk for Ali's Josh's bday....

...and that evening we went to BJ's Pizza for dinner to celebrate....this was our first dinner out!! He slept the whole time!

We went to play at Auntie Ali's house for the first time and Hayden shared all of her cool stuff with Oliver...

We are trying to get Oliver to love his pacifier. So far, he "likes" it....especially this one attached to a froggie....

He tried a bottle of pumped breast milk for the first time and did ok with it. We will keep practicing...

And he does a lot of this around here....
