My Busy Boy.... We're in trouble now!


Oliver has been becoming a little more adventurous. If he wants something he'll dive for it, he ends up on all fours with a look that says "oh no mommy, what do I do now??" Today he started trying to pull himself up on things. The coffee table and the pole to his jumper toy.... like I said we're in trouble.

The cutest thing today though was the picture above. I had him sitting on the floor playing with a few toys while I did some things for my mom on the computer. I looked over and he had pulled his basket of toys over to him tipped it over and was trying to play with everything... it was the cutest thing. Being a mom is so much fun. I love seeing the new things Oliver learns everyday!!

Tornado's in Moreno Valley... What??


So yesterday was CRAZY!! We had a very strange spring storm that included nothing else but a tornado.... I thought I left tornado's behind in Wisconsin but apparently not. The tornado touched down at March Air Force Base just a mere 7 miles away from our house. It then crossed the freeway and tipped over a semi truck and a freight train. And according to the news (and the picture I got from their website) it even at one point split into two tornado's. It was very strange and very scary. The thunderstorm even felt like a mid-western storm NOT a California storm. The thunder and lightning was loud and scary and our neighbors tree was struck by lightning. (They are at the bottom of our long street so it luckily wasn't right next door or anything). Very crazy weather none the less!

Photo Contest Update

Hi Everyone:

Roberto went to vote this evening and it was a lengthy process that involved going through a bunch of adds. I didn't realize when I submitted the photo that it would require so much. I don't want to impose on anyone so please don't worry about voting for Oliver. It was just a fun thing but I wouldn't vote for something if I had to look at a bunch of offers and don't expect any of you to! Thanks so much!

Arizona Trip

With Grandpa Roberto
Tia Elena and Melinqui
With Grandpa, Grandma & Daddy

Grandma & Grandpa Galindo
With Grandma Tere Below

We just returned from spending a few days with Berto's parents, aunt and grandpa! We had a nice time in Queen Creek, AZ with them! They loved spending time with Oliver (and spoiling him) it was fun for all of us! Oliver LOVED looking at their dog Melinqui. He's not used to such a big dog but he liked looking at him and every time Melinqui licked his feet he'd laugh!! It was about as hot there as it was here the only difference is it cools down in good old Moreno Valley in the evenings and it was still 90 degrees when we left at eight o'clock last night! Yuck! :) Roberto's mom babysits their neighbors little 2 year old during the week. He was there on Thursday. He was so cute and LOVED Oliver. He came over with his mom on Friday night and Oliver was already asleep... He was NOT happy about that he wanted to see the baby. Too cute! Anyway, we're glad we were able to spend some time with Berto's family! It was fun.... here are some pictures from our trip!

Mother's Day



Today was my first official Mother's Day! Sunday mornings are always a little hectic trying to get up and get all three of us ready for 9:00 am church. But this morning was nice! It seemed like Oliver knew it was mother's day. I was sitting on the couch and he was sitting next to me and started hugging my arm. It was the best thing I could have received on Mother's Day!! I loved it! I love being a mom and I feel so blessed to have an adorable and sweet little boy like Oliver and a wonderful husband Roberto!!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mommies out there!!

Love,
Elizabeth

Hollywood Night




So last weekend out ward (for those of you that don't know what a ward is, it's the congregation of people we attend church with) had a fun activity. It was a "Hollywood Night." We were supposed to come dressed up as different celebrities. Berto and I dressed up as Sandra Bullock and Benjamin Bratt in Miss Congeniality. It was a lot of fun. And they decorated the gym at the church so cutely! The highlight of the night though was the entertainment! Roberto was in one of the acts. They did a little dance to "These boots were made for walkin' " and Berto dressed up like a nerd and was pushed around by all of these women. His dancing is hilarious! Enjoy the fun pictures!!

Six Months Old

Wow how the time truly does fly by!! My little man is already six months old. I can't even believe it. I took him in on Monday for his six month physical and shots. He was such a trooper. Poor little guy. So he weighed in at 24 lbs 11 ounces and is 28 1/4 inches long. He's a big boy... but not just big he's pretty tall for his age too!!
And what a sweet boy! I love being Oliver's mom it is such a joy!
