Cooing and Smiling

So Oliver is just the cutest baby ever! We love it when he smiles and coos! We've decided that his "happy spot" is the changing table because for some reason when he's there he talks and smiles the most. Here is a short little clip of him smiling that Elizabeth took the other day! Enjoy!!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!





Dear Friends and Family:
With the arrival and adjustment to Oliver and parenthood we just didn't get our act together quick enough to send out Christmas Cards. We know this isn't the same as getting a fun picture in the mail but it will have to do this year! Sorry! :)
We made several attempts at family pictures... Oliver was either crying or sleeping every time... so this is what we ended up with! :)
Things have been hectic but good. We feel that we have been specially blessed this year with the arrival of our little Ollie! He' s such a sweet baby and although he's gassy and a little fussy he has such a sweet spirit and personality. After an afternoon of tears he'll just suddenly shoot one of us a big toothless grin and we can't help but smile ourselves. He's just so sweet!
We hope that all of you enjoy your Christmas and New Year! You are all in our thoughts and prayers and hope that things are going well!
We love you all!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Love,
Roberto, Elizabeth & Oliver

My first month!





Hello everybody! I've been keeping my mom so busy I decided I'd better help her out and tell you all how my first month has been! It's been pretty exciting. I'm a growing little boy. I've already gone from 9 lbs 7 ounces to 12 lbs 2 ounces. Mommy says it's because I'm a good eater... I think she's probably right!
I've had a bunch of exciting adventures already. First I was able to go home from the hospital with mom and dad and get to know my Grandpa and Grammy Bonelli and my Aunt Lianna and Uncle Donnie... boy do I have them fooled... they just love me and think I'm the cutest thing ever! They sure do spoil me! Then when I was just one week old my Grandpa and Grandma Galindo, my Tia Elena, my Aunt Terri, and my cousin Vandana all came to visit me. Grandpa, Grandma and Tia Elena all came from Arizona... but Aunt Terri and Cousin Vandana came the farthest... they came all the way from Spain just to visit me! That was a lot of fun and I was on my best behavior for them! My other great adventure so far was over Thanksgiving I was able to take my first road trip to Arizona so we could see Grandma and Grandpa's new house. That was neat because I got to spend more time with them and Terri and Vandana again! The trip home wasn't so much fun... I had a cold and cried a lot, but we made it back safe and sound!
My mommy and daddy think I'm so smart because I'm already smiling and cooing at everybody. They love watching me smile and laugh.
I think that's about it for now! Stay tuned to next month... and hopefully a little sooner my mommy will send everyone some Holiday wishes! Until next time.... enjoy a few of my most recent pictures! I'm growing everyday!

Love,
Oliver Cole!
