Spring 2015

New Market, MD 3 yrs old

You’ve started lying and it’s kinda adorable…

You are you “waffle toast” for breakfast then turned to me and said “My waffle toast fell in the trash…it all gone in the trash so… so…so I need a chocolate popsicle”   MMmmm hmmm….


There’s a cool beach in our neighborhood. That’s you and Sky playing.

Your blobby babies. You love them. They are literally babies to you.

Your new supercool room!

We’re playing Little Big Planet. You’re REALLY good at video games.

we were both sick 😦

Going to learn to swim!

Oops…mommy tried to touchup your mohawk…we had to go to the salon…

you and your cousins

You’ve  started stealing stuff!! I picked you up from school and once you were in your carseat you waited for the teach to walk away and then you went “Hee hee hee” and pulled a toy out of your pocket!

A month later we were at the nature center on a field trip and you tried to shove a stuffed animal spider in my pocket and whispered “PUT IT IN YOUR POCKET MOMY!!”

We had a long talk about why we can’t take things that don’t belong to us. It’s cute now but hopefully you don’t show up one day at 16 years old with a mystery car in the driveway….lol

Fall 2014 & early Winter 2015

We still live in Buffalo. You’re 3 years old.


“Robot too late! Robot too late!”  You say this in a robot voice. You and PauPau started it…no idea what it means.

Oliver, can you be a little quieter with your hammer?  “Oh…of COURSE!”  You’re so polite.

Oh no, I forgot my tea! “Don’t worry, Mom. You can go to the soscery store. Don’t worry..”

You say “emission” instead of “ignition”. This is during your make belive rocket blastoffs

Oliver: “Mama, I pushing so hard! I push the poop so hard it not coming out!”

Honey don’t push the poop. Just let it come out naturally.

Oliver: “… … … …sorry, Poop. Sorry for pushing you.”





Moving back to MARYLAND! We’re gonna stay with Nana & PauPau for a while…

I took you to play at the creek where I played as a kid.



You LOVE your Halloween costume. “Robot too late!”


Uncle Cliff is playing along too…his costume isn’t as cool but he tried.


SOOOO my child.


PauPau and you are bestfriends


The worst day of my life! Your peepee was “sharp” and you were in pain so we went to the hospital. You had to get a cathatar put in AND shots. You want me to kick that nurse lady and throw her in the trash. I’m sorry buddy!!!


On Christmas you met “Santa” aka my Uncle Jeff. You were awestruck and you still talk about it (a year later)


We have a new house! We got black floors and you LOVE them.

Playing video games


Sky is our neighbor and he’s your new bestfriend.

YOU BROKE YOUR HEEL!! You jumped off my bed. You really love your black cast though!

You LOVE cold things. You’ve always loved eating ice chips but now you put everything in the fridge…waffle toast…donuts…chips…cheese…I find stuff in there all the time that you’re “Saving for later”

Summer 2014

You say “I call” or “You call” a lot instead of “I SAID, You SAY, etc.”

You also have been telling me your feelings a lot which is very mature and cute of you. If we give you a timeout: “You can’t call timeout to me! I sad. You hurt mah feerings!”

July- Last time it rained we played in the puddles. It’s pouring out today and you kept asking ” I go stomp stomp with mah feet” I go BOOM BOOM!?”  It took a bit, but I finally got what you were saying and we went out to play in the puddles.


You don’t want to fall asleep at night unless I lay with you. I’m not sure if I should let you learn to fall sleep on your own or not… you get so upset if I leave: “I can’t go sleep…You snuggles with me? Aw man…Poor Poor Oliver….”   It’s SO CUTE so of course I stay.

You’re getting bossy but that’s normal 3 yr old stuff. You turn my head so that I’m looking at you while you fall asleep. You don’t like it if I don’t keep watch over you! You also pretend your hands are Flappy Guys. You LOVE Flappy Guys. We watch videos on YouTube all the time and you like to see the Flappy Guy at Daddy’s work. These are Flappy Guy faces:



You like to help me when I practice for my newborn photography sessions:



“My love you too, Mama”

“Me too love you!”

You talk about yourself in third person “That Oliver’s ball?” “An Oliver have some?”

You sing along at night when I sing Bushel and a Peck. ❤  Sometimes you ask for it but you don’t like when Daddy tries to sing it, only Mommy. “Dada can’t Bushel Peck me. Mama Bushel Peck me!”

Your 3rd birthday was great. We made you an Eh Eh Eh doll. (The earth guy from Only One Everything) “Happy Birthday to you too Mommy!”



The beach in Buffalo!
