Santa? meh.

I took Oliver to visit Santa hoping to get a good reaction.  I was hoping to use Oliver's first Santa picture for our Christmas card this year.  I figured either he would think Santa was hilarious or would be terrified by him. 

Either way, I get a good picture.  Right?


I got this:

I think it says "Don't touch me"

So, Santa was a no go.

Maybe the Grinch?  Oliver has a stuffed grinch doll at home that he likes, maybe the Grinch will be a better photo op...

Hmmm...not exactly what I was looking for.

I was going to have to go with plan B. 

I did get some cute pictures of him in front of a huge ornament display.

Frosty the Snowman

One of Andy's co-workers made an adorable Frosty the Snowman outfit.  I couldn't wait to put it on Oliver. 

I told Oliver if he put on the magic hat he'd turn into a talking snowman.

He was a little skeptical but he humored his mama and put it on.

I love the buttons.  And the scarf.  And the hat!

Oliver does too, he's decided he wants to wear them all the time.

Here is the view from behind.

I think he makes a pretty darn cute Frosty!

Monkey business

Oliver has a toy monkey.  Its hands velcro together, so they have been...uh...inseparable.

I love this picture--it illustrates Oliver's constant motion.

Oliver and Monkey, building with blocks.  They play really well together!

Oliver said "mama" today-- he's been working on it for a while but today he meant it!

The boy can accessorize

Oliver has been entertaining himself lately by experimenting with different accessories--and let's just say I think he is quite talented. 

There is the classic headband:

Then he tried on fall colors by getting decked out in Mama's sweater:

The most interesting of his fashion choices has to have been the kernel of corn.

In. his. ear.

Welcome to toddler-hood.
