Elephant Activity Gym

Now that we have a baby in the house again, Mom and Dad have brought out several of my old baby toys.

Here I am getting reacquainted with the Elephant Activity Gym.

It's great fun.

In fact, it's even more fun now that my legs are long enough to reach the toys.

Oliver likes the Elephant Activity Gym too.

He has a lot of fun in there.

Don't be fooled by the startled look.

He likes it. Trust me, I know exactly what he does and does not like.

Oliver likes it when I get in the Elephant Activity Gym with him.

Here, Oliver, let me show you how this is done.

My Great Grandma T made me this lovely hat and scarf set.

It really keeps my head and neck warm with all this cold weather we've been having lately.

Mom told Dad and Oliver to do something zany for the camera.

It appears that Oliver takes after Dad when it comes to being zany for the camera.

Here's another photo of the guys.

My Dad is pretty handsome, don't you think?

Mom wanted me to share some details about Oliver's latest visit to the pediatrician. You won't believe how big he is! He weighed in at a whopping 17 pounds and 7 ounces at only 12 weeks old. He's off the charts! He is also very tall for his age. He is 24 (and a half) inches tall. If he keeps growing at this rate, he's going to be as big as I am in no time! (I finally cracked 28 pounds, just the other day.)

Oll About Oliver

Today I'd like to talk about my brother, Oliver. Oliver is now two months old. He is still wobbly-headed, but he's getting a lot more interesting. I like to hug and kiss him. He likes to smile at me. We're having a lot of fun.

For Christmas, we put a Santa hat on his wobbly head.

He likes it.

He does not like it when I take the Santa hat away.

Waaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

Oliver really enjoys a hot bath.

He doesn't mind if I pour water on his face.

Oliver also enjoys getting dried off at the end of a long soak.

He's pretty cute, isn't he?

This might not be the most flattering picture, but it's the only one of Oliver in his bouncy seat when he was brand new.

The blanket and stuffed animals are courtesy of me. He likes them.

WOW!

I think he's getting enough to eat, don't you?
