Ollie is 3.
Dang. Time flies.
He is so smart. He surprises me everyday with what he knows and what he remembers. He still asks about Disney World and wants to go back (Keep in mind that was in June! 4 months ago!!) The other day he looked at a picture of us in Disney World and said "That's Roro. That's Boompa. That's Great Nana." and I was like " WHO did you just say??" and he said "Great Nana!" He loves spaghetti and meatballs. He absolutely loves being read to. He is a big help with Emory, getting me her binky or a diaper when we need them. He loves cartoons - Mickey Mouse Club House, Team Umi Zoomi, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, Jungle Junction. He loves firetrucks, blocks and balls. He loves helping me cook. He loves painting, especially if Doug is painting too. He loves the iPad and his new present, the Leapster Pad.
For Halloween, he was going to be Peter Pan. Emory was going to be Tinkerbell. How stinking awesome is that, right??? Well, about a week or so before Halloween, we were in Old Navy.. and Ollie fell in love with a costume.. a hamburger. He loved that costume, so we bought it (it helps that it was 50% off!) He was a hamburger, Emory was Tinkerbell.. not quite as matchy as I was thinking, but oh well. However, Doug was a hotdog.
Emory is now crawling, pulling up and cruising... pretty much all in one week. She gets so frustrated when she can't stand up in the middle of the floor and walk. I have no doubts she'll be walking by her first birthday. She has so much personality, so much of MY personality! - that teen years are not going to be fun around here! She's pretty much eating straight table food, anything we eat. Tonie decided to buy a giant pumpkin to take Emy's picture in.. so we did! We went to a pumpkin patch and she got a huuuge pumpkin that weighed as much as Ollie!
Ollie couldn't be out done and wanted to sit in the pumpkin as well.
