favorite things

Orson receives great toys from Aunt Kristin & Uncle Todd. Two of Orson's favorites are Mr. Lamb and Woodrow and I am glad they play well together.

video- sun & swings

The weather lately has been sunny and warm. We've been having a lot of fun at our neighborhood parks. Orson loves the swings and slides!

Here's a little video from Byron & Orson's outdoor adventure...

craft/play day

On Monday morning we went to a crafting day at Ann's house. Naomi & Micah picked us up (thank you for the ride).

We left our toy-filled living room to visit Ann & Ayla's toy-filled home. Ayla shared her toys and Orson was in heaven!

Naomi got in on the toy fun...

Orson loved pushing Ayla's wooden cart around... (Ayla might be giving the cart to Orson soon!)

The kiddos are so cute together!

Ayla shared her cereal with Orson...
Micah is incredibly patient. Ayla is a beautiful ball of energy who loves to climb all over him and Orson is constantly poking at Micah's eyes and tugging at his ears & hair.
Did I mention we met to craft (although I haven't crafted in a year!) Here are the ladies working on the latest project and catching up on the latest news.

On the way home, Micah sang Orson a lullaby which promptly put Orson to sleep. Nice work Micah!

early birthday gift

Orson got a birthday gift from Grandma & Grandpa McConnell... a fun toy chair/step stool. What a good time we have sitting and standing on the chair.

mommy's helper

I asked Orson to clean his room. He did a great job... the inside of his dresser is spotless!

a yummy mess

In the morning I feed Orson his yogurt/fruit/rice cereal. He remains relatively clean but then it's his turn to feed himself egg yolks, oatmeal, and toast. Things can get a bit messy.

Orson & I were happy to see Leah on Monday afternoon.
Orson was intrigued with Leah and her glasses.
She let him try them on.
Orson preferred to look at Leah without the glasses.
Thank you for the fun visit Leah!

super sunday

Orson got up super early on super bowl sunday.
He ran around super fast.
He was super happy to watch football with family & friends (thanks for coming over Zach & Liz).
Orson became super interested in Daddy's beer.
Even though the Colts lost we had a super day.

snacking with daddy

The boys enjoy a snack of cheese & crackers. Orson always checks his shirt for any misplaced yummies.

first plate and seventh tooth

I served Orson his snack today on a plate (with edges). It came with a suction cup to hold the plate down but I wanted to see how long it would take him to dump the food. His attention was held for a good while but the desire to fling food won over. Oh, and Orson's new teeth (#5 & #6) have inspired a seventh tooth to make an appearance. Three new teeth coming in at the same time... yikes!

Orson's starting to get his next set of teeth... the drooling and the runny nose have started up again!
