Another resolution

Aunt Amy may be sad that she missed the November and December birthdays but I am upset...nay...devastated that I missed pretty much every birthday last year. So, to add to my list of new years resolutions I WILL NOT FORGET ANY BIRTHDAYS THIS YEAR. All birthdays will be accompanied by a card in the mail... sometime with in a week of said birthday. Wish me luck!

I love Outlet Malls!

Yes, this looks like an Ebay listing but it's not.

Matt and I took a nice long drive to the Outlet malls today in Johnson Creek. We picked up a ton of goodies at Banana Republic, Gap, and Carters all for under $100.00! (4 sweaters, 2 shirts, 2 sets of PJ for Oliver, 1 pair of slacks, 1 skirt, and 1 belt) Just one more reason to love Wisconsin... Outlet malls everywhere!

Fun Oliver pictures

This morning I left Oliver in his chair so I could go make him a bottle. When I came back he was passed out asleep! Poor thing just couldn't wait another minute.

Oliver loves bath time!

"Seriously mom, just a little privacy..."

Attack of the mystery bug

Just wanted to let everyone know that Matt is alive and well although he still continues to occupy the living room floor. (Oliver isn't to happy that his play area is taken)

He loves his books!

Oliver will be 11 months tomorrow! I can't believe how time has flown by. He has started getting into everything and thinks all objects need to go in his mouth including peoples toes. He likes to sneak up on you and bite you! What's up with that? Strange kid. Other than the biting thing he is a joy to be around. Always laughing. It's been fun to see a little of me and a little of Matt sprinkled into his personality. Aside from his parents he takes after aunt Billie... just can't get enough books!

I'm one of those kind of moms

Exhibit A

Before I joined the ranks of mommyhood I always said I would never be one of "those moms". The kind of mom who's life is bombarded with a living room of plastic toys, an empty stomach until 11:00am when her baby is finally down for a nap, and a house that looks like the interior decorator was a two year old (please see Exhibit A... yes those are woodland creatures on my shower curtain). I really don't have anything poetic to say about the matter. I guess I'm just surprised that:
I am that kind of mom.
I don't care.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Here's to all you moms out there with creatures on your shower curtain. You deserve a big pat on the back.
