It's official - our blog has a new web address:

http://WeAreTheBritts.blogspot.com

This blog will remain up until I have had the opportunity to turn the posts into some kind of "photo" book, then it will dissapear.

>>poof<<

You will notice that the new blog is still *slightly* under construction. This will soon be remedied with an updated family pic and pics of all of us individually.

Please make note of the change of address and update your links (if you like - I'm not gonna force ya ~ wink).

Roger Roger!

Oliver is most definitly his daddy's son! Let me explain.

Most of know that my dear husband works in the IT field, and has for many years. Growing up, he also was involved with computers, however, not professionally - a hobby. He used to be a gamer on his PC, but now, married life and children have greatly decreased this hobby to almost nothing...BUT...now that Oliver is getting older, he is slowing introducing some of his hobbies to our son.

For example, for the past two weeks, Aaron and Oliver have been hanging out and watching Star Wars: Clone Wars episodes. Oliver LOVES them. In the mornings, he will wake up and typically ask to watch Star Wars. Uh-oh, hopefully I won't have an uber-geek on the rise...

Oliver also loves technology. He was gifted a Fisher Price toddler camera this Christmas from our dear friend Kevin and he LOVES taking pictures. This is a digital camera for toddlers, unbreakable - indestructable (so far).

He also plays video games on Aaron's iPhone; granted, they are toddler video games, but he still plays them with gusto!

On a side note, we have always known that Oliver is going to be athletic. He has great coordination and dexterity for a 2 year old. Take a look at this short video of Oliver imitating baseball...



Pretty cool, huh?!?

And we can't leave out little Eli! Some updates are definitely warranted!

Eli has been rolling over from back to tummy now for about 10 days now - it's awesome! What's funny is that he's rolled from tummy to back for a while now, but now that he's rolling the other way, he's forgotten how to roll back to his back! I remember Oliver doing this same thing and thinking it was just too funny. Poor baby gets so frustrated when he can't get back to his back.

In addition to nursing, he has been eating rice cereal at one meal now for a week. He LOVES the rice cereal and gobbles it right down.

Enjoy Oliver's video and the picture of Eli. I hope to get some more pictures up soon.

Some more fun!

I am posting, again! I'm hoping to post weekly like I used to, even about goofy stuff like food I've created or how many times Eli spit up in an hour - well, maybe not that -- wink.

I decided to let my guard down a bit this week so I bought Oliver some Crayola Washable Markers. I am always so cautious about things in my house getting ruined or colored on, so I figured I needed to relax a bit; afterall, things are just things. Oliver LOVED the markers, he was excited to learn to take off and put on the caps and color with them. I wanted to document his experience, it was quite fun to watch!

Off comes the cap!

" Oops, mommy I got some on my hand!"

How fun is this!

" Look at my hands mom!"

And now on to Eli - can't leave him out! Not much to update about him at this point, he's still cooing all of the time, getting so close to rolling back to front and smiles at you all the time. Doesn't your heart just melt when you see his smile? He's going to be a heartbreaker!

"Cheese!"

Up close and personal with Eli

Whenever Oliver refers to himself he's called "Der" or when he refers to Eli it's "WhyWhy" hence the title of this post.

Oliver has turned 2 1/2 and Eli is now 3 months - sheesh, time flies. Oliver is still talking up a storm and starting to really play with others. Make believe is also something that he's begun to do. Sometimes he'll reach into one of his pockets, pull out a "pretend" cell phone, talk on it really quick, say "bye" and put it back into his pocket. Obviously mom and dad must be on the phone enough that he thinks it's something fun to do.

He's also started grabbing a book and holding it like a tray and serving us hot or cold food. He'll tell us "Hot!" or "Cold!" and we'll blow on it or toss it around our hands and pretend to eat it. He gets a kick out of it.

Oliver's also really enjoying playing with legos, his train set and his cars. He likes for you to build a BIG house that has stairs with the legos.

Eli 3 mo - Talk about a cute smile!


Check out Oliver and his lightsaber - too funny!

Eli is quite the cutie, he's doing typical baby stuff: cooing, roling front to back, almost rolling back to front, etc. He smiles a lot, mainly when being talked to. We brought out the stationary bouncer that Oliver used to use and he's not sure what to think about it yet; I'm sure he'll enjoy it soon!

We go in for Eli's 4 month doctor visit at the end of the month, I can't wait to see how much he's grown!

Oliver 29 months, Eli 7 weeks

In case any of you were wondering about what life is like at the Britt house, well, here is a little peek:

It's a little crazy with the addition of a newborn, our sheduled days aren't as scheduled anymore. But, really, who's going to call the schedule police? I'd like to think that our lives will resume to our normal-ness sooner rather than later, but who am I kidding? I must mention, however, I don't mind...really!

Mondays are good, provided mom gets up before the kids. This means that I am showered and dressed, face made up and hair looking presentable. If this does not occur, then make way for the Grinch. Yes, I said Grinch -- don't believe me, ask Aaron!

Tuesdays are about the same as Mondays. That being said, so is Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We try to go to the park on occassion, especially when other kids Oliver's age are there. He loves to play with kids any age, so the park is a must. Every once in a while we go to BounceU so Oliver can bounce some of his energy out. If you haven't taken your kid there, you've got to go, they LOVE it!

Along comes the weekend and it's sleep-in Saturdays (although Oliver hasn't gotten the memo yet, apparently). Aaron takes care of the outside house maintenance, I play with the kids. Typically we try and get out as a family and eat a meal in a restaurant together then maybe come back home and watch a movie.

Sundays are COMPLETELY unpredicable. Oliver usually naps during the day around 1:30 till 3 or 3:30, so trying to juggle 2:00 church is nearly impossible some days. How do you take a 2 year old to church when he hasn't had a nap and he won't fall asleep in your lap? Ideas? Suggestions?? Benadryl (totally joking about the Benadryl)!

The best thing about life at the Britt household: life is unpredicable at times. I love my two little boys, I love my husband. I have so much to be thankful for that in the end, the days that don't go just right, are just a blink. They pass us by so quickly and we often forget them. It's the days that are magical that we remember!
