Big Boy Bed

Last night was Ollie's first night in his big boy bed.  Riley and I spent the weekend getting a bunch of projects done around the house and this was a major one.  Riley painted the baby's room so that the crib and dresser could be moved out of Oliver's room and his new bed and dresser could be moved in.

I can't believe that he is big enough to sleep in a big boy bed, but he couldn't be happier.
He did great!

We officially have our first room completed entirely in our new home.  Riley and I have been working hard trying to get projects done on our never-ending list.  We've got lots done, but still have lots left to do.  It was nice to get one room completed - Oliver's playroom.

I'm really happy with how it turned out and know that it will get lots of use.  Our routine has been that after bath time, we hang out up here and wind down before bedtime.  

Oliver is very pleased as well and often asks to go upstairs to play (mainly because that is where all his big tractors are, haha).

Summer Fun

Summer is underway and I've been using it to try to spend some time with Oliver doing fun things before his little world gets rocked when baby sister joins the family in August.  Although it is hot and we've got a massive list of house projects to get completed, we are also making memories with our little boy.

As I was painting the table and chairs for Oliver's playroom, he decided that he wanted to paint too.  I knew monitoring his painting with real paint would keep me from continuing my own painting so I gave him a cup of water and a paint brush.
I told him that he could paint anything that he wanted and it kept him occupied for a long time...
...and he had fun.  Win, win!

My friend, Kerby, came to town so I drug her along to the pool with us.  It was our first time at the Clay Center pool and Oliver's first time ever at a public pool.
He wasn't too sure of it at first and wanted to be held the whole time, but finally decided that the shallow kid area wasn't too bad.

Snuggling with Aunt Kerby is the best.

As his grandma would say, "Picasso in Pampers!"
