I got my own step, I got my own style.

November post.

The other night I was sitting close to Oliver talking to him about a book called, Mommy do you love me, and he grabbed my face with both hands and kissed me and then said, "love Mommy", and then smiled and yelled, "Chicken Nugget!"

That was the first and only time he's told me he loves me. I'll take it. 

He's becoming a super funny kid. And I love it. He did have two horrible days earlier this week but he seems to be back to normal again. 

Here are some pictures of us at a new park we visited called Wood Lake Nature Center. It was pretty.

Thanks for doing your part, you sure are smart.

A couple October photos....

At the beginning of the month Oliver and I sat down and looked through Halloween pinterest craft pins to do. One of the ones he always got excited about where these jello monster eyes. I didn't think this one looked particularly exciting... but he kept wanting to do it so we finally did. 

He was very excited when we made them and then when I pulled them out. But then he didn't quite want to do anything with them.... it was pretty funny. He eventually used a spoon and mushed them around and used a straw to drink it up for a sip or two. So I guess it worked out. 

Ready for bed. 

Oliver and I also went to go see my friend kimberly from college in Wisconsin. It was exciting to see Bre too, she is so cute! We went to get ice cream and then found a big fountain that Bre and Oliver loved. Bre got soaked and Oliver was little hesitant of getting any water on him but still had a lot of fun. It was cute.

Kim dumping Bre in the water. Bre probably would have been happy if kim let her swim in it.

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night.

Some October pictures...

A new Hobby Lobby opened up a minute or two from our house and Oliver and I went to find a little craft to do. We went from one craft to another until Oliver found this wooden plane that he fell in love with. He was beyond excited. After we checked out he hurried and took it out of the bag and held it close all the way home. He painted it all by himself too.

Oliver's a huge Halloween fan and got a lift tab haunted house book from Grandma and reads it regularly.

Since he loved his plane craft and a leaves and trees craft we did together I decided to try a pumpkin craft. He was excited at first but I think it was a little too long of a craft for him. But they turned out really cute and he likes to see them on the wall.

And a napping picture.

I'd buy a big house where we both could live.

: Oliver's Two Year Post :

Loves to talk in his "baby" voice, and say aww

Can say blue, purple, yellow, orange, pink, and black. And probably 70 percent of the time says the correct color.

Asked for two cookies yesterday. One for each hand.

I've never seen another two year old as big as him.

Loves planes, fish, and lollipops.

Has been only wanting "mamma" at night or after naps.

Does great when he doesn't take a nap, but still loves them and often takes them. They're about 2 hours long which means bedtime often gets pushed back pretty late.

One night when putting him to bed he was frustrating me by not going to sleep quick enough. He wanted more bottle so I left to fill it up and was considering not going back and making him fall asleep on his own (something he has never actually done at night). I decided it would just be easier to go back in. When I did he welcomed me with a sleepy "mamma, oh mamma, aw" and then cuddles. It broke my heart.

Has been perfect on the past two trips back and forth from Thunder bay. A 6 hour drive one way. Hope I don't jinx it for the next time.

Loves TV.

Anything little is called a baby. His smaller toes, littler oranges..

Must sleep with the same blanket every nap and bedtime. Every night. Also sleeps with a fish and bunny. When he wants the bunny he says hop hop.

Wears size 3T shirts and 2T pants.

Is super cute.

And here is an overload of photos. I couldn't decide which to post and which to leave out. So... he only turns 2 once right? I figure this will be a post I'll return to eventually anyways. Btw, we took the photos at Fort Snelling. My favorite place in Minneapolis. Maybe my favorite place ever? We went to this one trail that is made up of lots and lots of stairs. He went straight for them and didn't stop till he got the the top. Every time we came to another set he would point and say "more stairs, more stairs". Because of this there are a lot of none face photos. But I wanted these pictures to be more natural and just let him have fun, no posing. But I think they are adorable either way!
