(A week late, because Christmasfuntime got in the way..)
I tried to take a lying-down photo of him in front of the chalkboard but he's much happier when we try to sit him up for things.
This month has been so fun! Oliver has gotten pretty good at holding his head up (when we're holding him) so he feels like this little person that looks around at the world and it's awesome. He smiles like crazy now, but I still have the hardest time getting good pictures of it because he would much rather make lots of crazy faces at the camera. He's especially smiley in the morning, though. We usually wake up about 7:30 and go into the living room, and I put him in his vibrating seat and get him to smile at me for a while. He coos a lot and it's fun to have little conversations with him.
Christmas was fun, but it'll be much better next year when he can participate! It was hard not to go crazy and buy him all the toys but we resisted and just got him a couple of stuffed animals (the grandparents bought tons of toys, though). I'm really excited because I'm about to start his baby album-- I'm doing Project Life, and it's going to start at the beginning of my pregnancy and run all the way to his first birthday. I just have to order all of his pictures I've taken so far (so. many.) so I can catch up.
I promise there will be a return to outfit photos soon! And I want to post about all the hats I've made him, because I've gone a little nuts with them lately..
