he is so precious. i didn't know you had to do the billi-blanket... it's kind of lame, huh? oh well, it's WAY better than the tanning bed set-up.

he kind of does look like sayer, especially in that picture with the light paddle and yellow cloth on his tummy. i wish i could hold him and give him loves...

I'm a little disappointed that you didn't use my name as his first name. But, I'm glad to see that at least you named his middle name after me. (This is Mike by the way.) :) Congratulations!

Oliver is a cutie. I love the stretching pic below. I guess I'll have to start doing that now that we registered for the mud run. I won't tell Ashlyn you are coming down because she'll ask about you everyday until October.
