I wanted to hurry and post this to our family journal because it's a moment I want to remember forever!
Recently I've gotten in the habit of singing to Oliver before he goes to sleep. Usually he actually conks out after two or three songs. His favorite is the ABC's. Anyway, tonight after I sang him one song I paused to take a breath before beginning a new one and as I was taking a breath he said "more." So I asked him "do you want me to sing you another song?" and he did his characteristic pointing his fingers up in the air and shouting "yay!!!!"
This was such a sweet moment for this mommy! It really made my day!

So tonight Oliver was being quite difficult to get to sleep. He insisted on having one of the throw pillows from my bed, his stuffed dog named "puppy" who he always sleeps with, a stuffed elephant AND his toy airplane all in bed with him. This is exactly how he wanted everything and would not settle himself until he felt it was just right! He looks so funny and so adorable and yes that is his airplane in his hand!
On another super adorable note Oliver said his first "sentence" today! I was showing him a book with a picture of a dragon on it. He loves dragons because of our weekly visits to the library (they have a humongous one there). I was trying to get him to say dragon because it's so cute when he says it. Anyway, I didn't get dragon but I asked "What is this?" (as I held up the book) and he said "It's a book!" I thought that was so brilliant! Can you tell I'm a doting mom? I think he needs a sibling so he doesn't get too much more spoiled! :)
Last week on one of Berto's days off we were out in Chandler running errands. We decided to try to find some place indoor that Oliver could run off some energy because (even though he was being really good) he was getting pretty tired of our boring errands! So we found this brand new Mc Donalds and they had an AWESOME toddler play zone. Oliver loved it! He in fact actually ran around and played (which he usually clings to us when we take him to the one at one of our local malls I think because it is SO crowded). Anyway, he had a blast!
