first trip to oklahoma!

wow! i can't believe it's been so long since i was able to post anything. it's hard to find time when i have 2 hands free, but i've enjoyed every minute of it.
anyway, we spent last week in oklahoma! jamie was able to fly there with us (i was nervous to fly alone with oliver the very first time), but sadly had to leave just a day later. originally oliver and i were only going to spend a long weekend in OK, but then my mom had a brilliant idea for us to stay a little longer and we would drive with her to my sister's house in arkansas, then fly out of little rock. my sister was due any minute with the twins, so we were hoping that we might be able to meet the girls too. however, she went into labor the night we got to oklahoma, so my mom had to leave the very next morning. everything went smoothly and the babies were big and healthy! my mom came back sunday night and planned to spend a couple days with us then we would still head to AR as planned, but as the days went by we decided 3 babies might be a bit much, so oliver and i again changed our flight and we just flew out of oklahoma instead. my mom went on to arkansas without us, but we got to spend lots of time with the tallerico grandparents, which was really nice.

here are a few pictures from our trip:

oliver spent lots of time in his car seat, which he's never really done before. he was such a trooper!

danny's birthday was on tuesday, but we celebrated a little early while jamie was still in town.

the tallerico men

oliver finally got to meet his aunt elisa (and estella too, but i didn't get a picture)

then on danny's actual birthday we surprised him at work and went to lunch. (notice oliver's onesie. it says "i ♥ grandpa".)

granna squeezing as much oliver time in as she could before she had to leave.

finally home with dad!

by the way, oliver did AWESOME on all the flights. he is such a good boy.

oliver's a month old!

i can't believe it's been a month since ollie was born. it feels like a lifetime ago that we were in the hospital, but it doesn't seem like he should be a month old yet. in celebration of the day he and i went to a mom's group for babies born in august. there were only 2 other women at this gathering (and one was still pregnant), but it was fun and nice to be out of the house and talking to adults. we will be going once a week now, it will be nice to have something to look forward to.

(i took this photos this morning before the fussing began! these cards were a gift from my good friend christy. i'm so excited to use them each month!)

oliver has been such a perfect baby that i should have known it was too good to last. this week he has decided to be fussy. both monday and tuesday he was cranky and screaming ALL DAY LONG!!! and it was even worse in the afternoons. nothing seemed to really help. sweet jamie even brought me home beautiful flowers since i had such a stressful day. then today oliver was so good while we were at the mom's group, so i thought he was back to normal. unfortunately as soon as we got home he was angry and fussy again. i've decided he hates afternoons/evenings. i've never been so happy to see jamie! he has him right now which is why i'm able to post this. i'm just hoping he'll get back to normal because we are flying to oklahoma a week from tomorrow and everyone (including myself) is going to hate us if he's screaming on the plane!

there are really not any pictures of me with oliver so jamie took this last week.
