This boy is a CHARACTER. He's evolving from my little baby to my little buddy and I love having the front row seat to his life. Our days are full of leg hugs, dumping things out (him) and cleaning them back up (me) and laughing at each other. Swipe to see us one year ago!
We are going to make Boo Zoo a Halloween tradition! Ollie loved the animals + nobody gave us weird looks while we trick or treated for candy that our baby obviously wouldn't be eating😂 independent walking went out the door between his new shoes and desire to run everywhere but it was so fun watching his excitement.
This October baby did not come to play😂 #workinit
Oliver's Birthday Party! I'm still in disbelief that we are on the other side of that magical + demanding first year. I was talking with my sister-in-laws about how sad I am to no longer have a baby baby, but they pointed out that now there's even more to love and at each stage you get to unwrap another layer of your child. I couldn't agree more! (Big thanks to @kenziediamondart for the video!)
If you're tired of seeing hiking photos, don't worry hiking season is almost over in Utah😭 But we are heading into the Holiday Trifecta so lots to look forward to—> 🎃🥧🌲
I don't know how he knew it was his birthday today but he was hamming it up all day😂 We loved celebrating the best thing that ever happened to us. Happy 1st birthday Ollie boy, I've loved snuggling you and cheering you on as you've learned, grown and changed the past 365 days.
This past week was my favorite week yet. We went on a hike, walk or run together almost everyday and all three of us benefitted from the attention we gave each other sans screens. Plus Ollie has reached a new level of cuteness because he says mo mo (more more) whenever he wants us to reread a book we just finished. It's a sweet stage for sure.
We had the best time at the pumpkin patch with our besties tonight! We stayed an hour longer than we planned (partly because we got lost in the corn maze) and it still wasn't long enough😂
This little love will be one in two weeks. I made a goal to only let myself cry about it the night before so I will not let myself get sappy now😂 I will say that I am knee deep in party planning and I can't wait to celebrate him! He makes life so sweet.
