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!

yum yum

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...
