Oliver Made Pizza

Yes, this is the dinner Oliver made himself tonight. Actually it is french bread cut up with a pizza base sauce and some cheese but he helped daddy make it so he ate it!!

What a clever boy!

Close your mouth Oliver!! He does have some food in his mouth but luckily it was nearly all gone so I don't think you can see it (thankfully!). I wonder where he gets it from?? LOL

Visa Processing

Well, finally Rob's visa is in the queue at Australia House for processing. While speaking to Lauren at the agency, she said her colleague had sent off a spousal visa application and it was approved in 3 weeks!! OMG. Could this really happen to us?! Here's hoping it does. It won't mean that we will leave in 3 weeks but it does mean that we will be leaving sooner rather than later. We had been told it was going to take over 3 months to process due to staff taking their summer holidays (which would cause a backlog) but I am feeling optimistic that ours will take weeks rather than months. Keep your finger crossed for us!

How Shall I Sleep Tonight?

How about this pose? LOL

After I got home from my exercise class tonight, this is how I found Oliver. Dribble on his pillow and his legs hanging over the side!! Hilarious.

I can see some of these photos being used for his 21st collage, can't you?!

Potty Time

I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but I had to take this photo of Oliver. Without taking his eyes off the television, he moved his potty up against the couch (he has to place it in the same spot every time!). He also has to hold his shirt up around his armpits - why, I have no idea! I think he sat here for 5 minutes and when he got up, he had a red ring around his bottom from the seat!! ROFLOL. Like father like son!

Here he is watching the television!

Boy In A Bucket!

I thought I would get a head start on cleaning our garden furniture as we are having visitors this Saturday and we are hoping to have a BBQ!!!

Someone had to help me (he started fully clothed!), and this is how he ended up - in the bucket of clean water I used to wash the soap suds off. Can you see the green and red thing behind Oliver, well that is his slide which should be gleaming after he spent an hour washing it. LOL

Here is a close up of the boy! Enjoying the sun.

For Poppy

Dad has had to go back into hospital again as he has had some more 'turns' and his Dr wants to put more stents in to stop these 'turns' from happening again and causing a major heart attack. I didn't know until afterwards, but he had 6 stents put in and even had a bit of a turn while on the table!!
Oliver wanted to do some painting so I said why not make one for Poppy. This is what he came up with. The eyes and mouth in the top right corner is an octopus!! LOL.

Where Am I?

Can anyone see where Oliver has gone?!?!

You can also see his train track going under the couch. He puts the track together and for some reason always goes underneath and then comes out the side of the couch.

And this is the mess he made!! LOL Now that I have moved my crafting table up stairs into the spare room (I have my own studio now!), it makes the lounge room much bigger and Oliver is able to spread out more and not get under our feet - well under Rob's chair and the computer!!

And Again!

Why did we bother buying him a bed I ask you! LOL

He says his bed is "rocky"!? I think he is talking about his mattress which is not the one I wanted to buy but because the 'other' boy in our family hates shopping at IKEA and the mattress I did want was out of reach, Oliver got stuck with the one we bought. It is fine but it is not a spring mattress which is what I think is the problem. It is not like our mattress!!

So, I guess we just keep picking him up and putting him back in his bed! It is funny thought when you go up stairs to check on him as you never know where you will find him!

Where Is My Bed?

Look at where Oliver fell asleep tonight - on the floor!!

I don't know if you can see but he has his 'blanket' with him (look between his hands). Poor Piglet and Rabbit are left out in the cold - not with Oliver nor on his bed! LOL

He had just fallen asleep when I took this photo so I left him on the floor for a while so he was well and truly asleep before moving him back to his bed.

Baby Ollie

No, not my Oliver but Bartholomew (Ollie).

This is little Ollie at only a few weeks old. Ollie and mummy Kath came over today for a visit but I forgot to take a photo. I will do next time. He is much bigger now and practically slept the whole time they were here (except for a feed!). As I am so used to Oliver's weight, little Ollie is so light but Kath can notice the difference in him. I remember carrying Oliver around and then not being able to carry him for too long because he was getting fat!! It was a beautiful 'fat' though!

This was the 'nappy cake' I made for them when we went to see Ollie for the first time (the photo above). I got this idea from a talented stamper in the USA.

This was the matching card I made to give to Neill & Kath.

BTW - Neill was our best man at our wedding.

Neill is on the left.
