chugga chugga choo choo

He screamed the entire time we sang to him.
and I mean screamed!
My mom made the awesome train for the party, she also decorated!
I think I look handsome.
Oliver hated facial hair.

Ruth Harkelroad made this awesome cake!
Oliver got to have the whole train off of the top!
These are the party favors. I made the little bags out of hankies... there is a train whistle, conductor duckie, chocolates, and an engineer visor inside.
I think Justin looks like a cop!
All aboard!
He wasn't too sure about the train at first... but he got used to it!
Lots of presents!!! and clothes for summer!

It went from...

...hoping that maybe just maybe he would sleep through the night tonight...

...watching as he started to crawl, backwards!

...hearing momma for the first time...

...surviving the first fall off of the bed (I think it was harder for me to go through honestly)...

...rocking him to sleep at night on my ever growing pregnant belly...

...seeing those first clumsy steps...

...going to see Dr. Miller AGAIN for another ear infection...

...getting those tubes, it wasn't so bad...

...walking, just Oliver and me, during those summer days, and explaing to him how God made the trees...and then calling Justin to come get us because I was too pregnant to finish...

...laughing my head off when he tried new foods...

...him teaching me how to play...

It went from me being so excited at how fast he was growing up, to me just begging God to let it all slow down...Oliver has turned 2.

Man, it was so funny when he was crying while we were singing. I couldn't stop laughing! And when the cake kicked in a he was just running around screaming...good party!
