Baby Stats

Oliver and Hazel had their annual wellness exams this week and it looks like they are growing like weeds. 
Here are the stats for Oliver:
Weight:  32 lbs
Height:  3' 1.5"
50th percentile for both.
Miss Hazel's stats:
Weight:  20 lbs 12 oz
Height:  2' 5.5"
She is also in the 50th percentile for both. 
We went to Picture People to get pictures taken for her first birthday.  I have to say they are pretty darn cute. 
Got to love the sassy pants pose.  She loves the camera!

Birthday Brunch Bash!

 Yesterday we hosted a birthday brunch in honor of Oliver turning three and Hazel turning one. I can't believe my babies aren't babies any more!  I feel so incredibly blessed to have such amazing kids and awesome friends to celebrate with.

Happy Birthday Oliver and Hazel!  I love you!

Thrifty Thursday

Miss Hazel has officially graduated to a big girl car seat (and it's awfully cute if I say so myself).  I decided to spend the extra money to get a Britax because the Evenflo we got for Oliver drives me CRAZY!  While it does have awesome safety ratings and I like the fabric, the straps are constantly twisting.  If it had a neck I would strangle it and leave it on the side of a dirt road.  Seriously, I hate that thing.  (Sorry for recommending it Amy.  I didn't realize you could even purchase a car seat that didn't twist, so I didn't realize how much I hated it until about 10 minutes ago when I put Hazel in the Britax.)  
Anyhoo... I found an awesome deal at Baby Earth.  I'm not usually one to give a shout out to a company but I did get a great deal so I thought I would pass it along.  After coupons it came to $149 even.  No tax, no shipping!

Happy Birthday Oliver!

  I decided to have a little impromptu pizza party for Oliver on his birthday (the real party is in two weeks but I felt bad not having something special on the actual day of his birth).  We had his best friend Drake over for the festivities.  The kids really were having fun regardless of what their little faces look like in the picture.
 Per Oliver's request here is Scruff!!!
 Horrahhh for cookie decorating... and being naked!

....5 lbs of frosting later
 Ya, that's Christmas wrapping paper you see.
 Thomas movie!!!
 A George tractor!!!
This party sucks but the paper isn't too bad.

A birthday conversation

I went to wake Oliver up this morning and here is the conversation that we had:

Me:  "Happy Birtrhday Oliver!"
Oliver: "It's my Birthday?  I want Bash Bash and Furry Hands!!!!"  (Translation:  Bash, Dash and Ferdinand.  These are Thomas the Train characters).
Me:  "Ummmm.... I hope you don't get Furry Hands for your Birthday that would be grose.  What else would you like?"  
Oliver:  "Banana pancakes on my plate and Scruff!!!  It my Birthdaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!"
Me:  "Sure thing little man".

Today my little man is 3 and cuter than ever.  I am in love with his quirky little personality.  Every day is a new adventure and a joy.  I love you Oliver! 
(I will post pictures later)
