16 weeks, Christening and Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

My little one was 16 weeks yesterday and the Christening went very well! All of Mike's family joined us with his sister and BIL being God-parents. The ceremony on Ester Vigil was beautiful, and Oliver wore the Christening robe that Mike wore at his! Now, not my style at all but I understand traditions! Here's a pic from last night (do you see how blue his eyes still are?)



As milestones go, Oliver is now a pro at lifting his head when on his tummy! Wohoo! Still not really liking it but not crying as much. And he's definitely attempting to roll over (onto his right side) which causes major migrations in his crib and then he gets stuck quite often sideways. Quite funny to see! He's a big smiler and very chatty too! He's very interested in his toys and we think he's now intentionally grabbing things too (like my hair for example). He loves his baby rice and next week we'll start introducing sweet potatoes and then apples. One thing is that he's waking up much earlier these days, not really hungry I think, just bored to be in his crib (or stuck with his head on the side of the crib!)

And mommy yesterday had a pampering massage which was a gift of the Ultimate Vet Hero! She got one too and we had a lovely time together. Today will be a quiet day in our household, I'm pushing for the wooden floor in the attic to be put down...we'll see.

Finally, I'm loving being back on ICLW! I've already met new friends!

  8. Here from ICLW (#54). Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

    I have to say, I see the phrase "miracle baby" over and over again, but those words really do apply to you and your story. What a sweet little fella. He is precious and I know you're so thankful he is with you.

  11. What a beautiful picture! I think it's so special that Oliver wore the same Christening gown that his Daddy wore. That's really nice, and I'm sure it meant a lot to Mike's family. Oliver really is getting so big! Such a handsome baby. Speaking of massages, I keep saying I'm going to treat myself to one. Now that you've had one, I am more convinced it's the thing to do!

  19. Oliver is a cutie pie! We have a cat named Oliver :)
    Ruby hated tummy time for a long time and then one day, voila!, she did it with no problems. I am guessing that I have daycare to thank for that one!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy ICLW!
