a mash-up of firsts

Oliver, my love:

In honor of your 8-month day, (you will learn quickly that your mama is random like this... you might think that celebrating a half birthday/6 months would make sense, but that's not how we operate around here) here are a few "firsts" from your life up until now. You will also find out that I may not be the best record-keeper or the most faithful scrapbooker, but I will always be there cheering you on. With or without a camera in my hand, I will always be around for moments big and small, helping you learn and make memories.

With all my heart,

your first day at home - wearing your first hoodie

your smiles - my heart grew three sizes that day

sick appointment - diagnosis: blocked tear duct & a broken blood vessel

a round of shots - this only nearly killed your mom

here's the first time you met your friend Madelyn

and your first time trying "food", rice cereal

You make my heart so happy, baby Ollie.


  1. Our babies are getting so big! We are very blessed you and I. <3 Thanks for always posting great, adorable things, Sara!

  2. Happy 8 months, Ollie! He sure is a cutie! And my husband is now obsessed with his first little hoodie.

  3. He is way too cute!!! I feel like my blog is a sort of virtual scrapbook for G until I can get to actual pages (not a one yet). At least pics are being taken and stories are getting out somewhere...right?

    And, yes, my son has a new toy on the changing table as well - which I refrained from including in the blog. I suppose it's universal and the obsession starts early *sigh*

  4. Oh crap, I'm the worst "record keeper" ever. I consistently forget to record milestones in the babe's book. But usually I can figure it out by reading my past blog posts.
    PS. He's a cutie! Love those pictures.
