saturday night fun

Orson was beyond excited when Micah came over Saturday night while his folks went to a holiday party.
The pictures are blurry due to the amount of activities!
We played with planes, trucks, soccer balls, video games all while listening to a mix of holiday and hip-hop music.
Thanks for hanging out with us Micah!

monday with daddy

The men went to the coffee shop early this morning...

Later they played the keys...

We also had Orson's 9-month check-up... his height and weight are up; and the doc says Orson resists her poking and prodding with the strength and vigor of a 2-year-old.

gobble gobble

We had an exciting Thanksgiving week! Grandma & Grandpa Rogers, Uncle Kent, and Cousin Ryan all made their way to Oregon. We spent the week at a great ocean-front house in Rockaway Beach.

Orson caught up on his reading...
Here's Orson, Grandma & Ryan doing a little cooking...
Orson enjoyed the view from his highchair...
Orson was a happy, clingy baby!

Everyone pitched in to help (although Grandma did an amazing amount of cooking!)

Orson even managed to stay awake for the first half of the feast!

We were so thankful we got to spend time with family...
Ryan was able to get some big laughs out of Orson...
We can't wait for the next holiday celebration!

Orson is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Grandma & Grandpa Rogers, Uncle Kent & Cousin Ryan! They're coming to Portland to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. We will be heading to the coast to spend a few relaxing days on the ocean... we can't wait!

thank you to leah & tim!

Orson & I can't thank Leah & Tim enough for helping us move furniture on Wednesday! They didn't giggle at the dust under the dresser or my inability to recall the word "wrench." Thank you both sooooooooooooooooooo much!

the latest fun

Who knew Orson would fall in love with the cover to the tray of his high chair? As you can see in the video, we have found a fun use for it!

baby prison

Orson has outgrown his current crib and is moving on to a bigger one (thank you Grandma & Grandpa Rogers!) We are about to do a big rearrangement here to give Orson more room to wander and play... I'll post pics when we're done!

early bird

Daddy left early for school (again). I was hoping Orson would sleep and allow me to get some work done but... here he is, wide-awake and ready to play!

With the exception of green beans, Orson has yet to meet a food he doesn't like. He has also discovered that bananas make a great hair styling product.

the life of a skeleton

Orson loved being a skeleton for Halloween...
He walked like a skeleton...
He read like a skeleton...
He napped like a skeleton...
He played like a skeleton would (with a spooky spider friend)...
Even a skeleton can be a Daddy's boy...
By the end of the day, Orson had perfected his scary, skeleton face...
