cement cereal

aka rice cereal. i swear, no matter how much i wipe, that stuff never comes off his face.

oliver is 6 months now. wow that went by fast. i realized as i was typing this that i don't talk about oliver's demeanor very much. he is an absolute angel. the perfect third child. both joel and kadin were pretty good babies, so we were sure that we would have a tough baby this time around, but he's the best tempered out of the whole lot. maybe if we ever get a girl, she'll be just like me and give us a run for our money. :) anyway, oliver is such a joy to have in our family. he's so happy, hardly ever cries, sleeps like a log and eats like a champ. and those bright blue eyes and his squishableness (if that's a word) are just irresistible . this kid's chunkiness seriously astounds me. so for your squishing pleasure...

oliver and his cousin tyler. tyler was born about 3 1/2 months after oliver.
ben's dad made this cradle for his babies long ago... we took a picture just like this of joel and carter (tyler's older brother) right after joel was born. joel and carter are 3 months apart, too. we just HAD to recreate the cuteness!
and a little video for fun...

AGH! I LOVE HIM! I don't know what it is about chubby babies these days, maybe it's because my little Cecily is pretty gargantuan herself, but I canNOT get enough of your chubster!!! I seriously want to.... GAH! Just BITE him!

*sensing future issues for the child...*

oh. my. gosh. he is sooo chubby!! i love in the video how he looks like he is pumping up his chest and trying to show his muscles. can't wait to give him hugs and kisses.

I just want to squeeze those cheeks! Glad I found your blog, the boys have grown up so much and I LOVE the name Oliver. Hope all is well with you and yours.

That kid seriously is an angel. Squeeze him for me, would you?

Poor Oliver!! To have cleavage at such a young age must be pretty traumatic for him.

Miss you guys!!

I love his look, like he's saying "You lookin' at me?" What a cute chunk!
