At 10 months, Oliver was cruising everywhere. We bought him one of those push toys, and it quickly became his favorite. He could stand on his own and take a couple wobbly steps between objects. March was fun because we got to take a trip down to St. George and out to Georgia for Eleana's baby shower. He also got his first stomach bug. With the weather warming up, we also took a couple trips to the zoo to visit the animals. Yogurt was still a favorite and no teeth were anywhere in site.
Oliver turned 11 months the day after Easter. By Easter, he was walking on his own. He looked like a t-rex because he would hold his hands up and close for balance. He could be often seen with a toy in each hand walking but going no where in particular. He loved Easter eggs; he seriously couldn't get enough of them...especially opening and closing them over and over. He loves to play peek-a-boo and listen/watch Frozen. He is quick to smile and loves to gibber jabber all day long. He can finally sit through a whole board book and loves to help turn the pages. He got to watch Daddy graduate from the U with his undergraduate degree and found out he was going to be a big brother. He also got his first hair cut, mostly just a trim around the ears.
Oliver got to celebrate early in Utah and then we moved to Georgia and celebrated there too. He got to eat macaroni and cheese, pizza, pie, and cake in celebration and received lots of fun toys for him to play with. He loves to swim and has decided it's ok to walk in grass. He loves to take off his shoes and socks and still won't wear hats for very long before pulling them off. He curious about everything and loves to mimic what he sees other's doing. He could walk around in circles all day long. Still no teeth, but he eats almost everything we do. We have introduced cow's milk and are slowly weaning. Most excitingly, this world traveler got to go to Germany, Austria, and Italy at 12 months. He loved visiting his cousins and trying to keep up with them. He was such a trooper the whole 2.5 weeks were gone, but more on that later in a separate post. He weighs 18 lbs and is in only the 2nd percentile for weight, but he definitely becoming a little toddler. We love when he gives us kisses and the occasional hug too.
