The boys have done better with the baby than I expected... even Ollie has started kissing and talking in a sweet voice to him. The other day I had Lincoln on the couch- for now he sleeps through the noise of two little boys. Elliott had to keep "checking on the baby" and this is how he would do it:

Here are some more pics of our cute Baby Lincoln...
He looks just like Adam's baby pictures.He has lots of dark hair in the back and not so much in the front yet.
We love having our little Lincoln at home! We just stare at him all day- so fun to finally see him. We forgot how much babies sleep (except at night!!) Elliott loves to hold him and show him all his toys and his room. He can't wait to teach him EVERYTHING. Ollie keeps saying things like, "When our baby cries- SHE will be hungry." and "Our baby, whose name is Elliott..." Little mixed up on having a new little person in the house. He isn't interested in holding or kissing him, but loves to pet his head and play with his hands. Adam and I just kiss him all day long. He is soooo soft. And his little faces he makes after we kiss him are so cute.

Other than getting ready (waiting patiently??) for the baby to come (6 days left if anyone's counting...) here are some random pictures of what we've been doing lately:Adam has been practicing with a group who is doing "Talking Heads" covers. They finally had their first performance the other night. It went well, although I wasn't there to see it since they didn't go on until 10 PM. I sent my camera with my sister instead. He's also been working on his own stuff and has recorded two really great songs- along with some help from his friend Rich.
Rich, Grant, Melissa and Adam. (Not seen clearly is Cam on the drums.)
Megs and Tanner at the concert.The other day I came home from a meeting after church and this is what I found... I had to take a picture. I never get sick of seeing my hubby with the boys- even if he is snoozing on the job.
Still working on the potty stuff-so undies is a typical outfit for Mr. Oliver these days. And he still loves wearing Elliott's shoes all the time.

This is what our life is all about right now. I think we make 20+ visits to the bathroom daily for Ollie... I'm pretty sick of it. He loves going #1- in fact he would go every 10 minutes if I let him. But it's the #2 he's having trouble with.
Anyway, we will have been diaper free for exactly 3 weeks, (after 5 1/2 years!!!) until the baby comes, but sometimes I think underwear is overrated...

So I finally hit 30 on Saturday. I had such a great day with friends and family! First I met up with friends for breakfast and some girl talk. Everyone needs to go to Paradise Bakery and try their quiche and cinnamon rolls- yum!
Linds, Rachel, Lindsay, Cassie, Jen, Heather, Me and my Mom (We seriously talked for over 2 hours...)After, I went to get a pedicure (since I can't reach my toes anymore!!) and did a little shopping with my family in Salt Lake. We found some really cute robot stuff for the baby's room- I'm so excited about it! Then we met up with Adam's mom and dad and Christie for dinner at Tepanyaki. Karen (Adam's Mom) and I share the same birthday- so we always get to go to dinner together on our big day.
I was taking pictures of everyone during dinner- the boys were so into their food- it was funny. (Above)- Ollie LOVING his onion soup. It kept him busy for a while.
Elliott loving his salad even though it doesn't look like it. Here he is shoveling it in. He downed the whole thing.Love Elliott's little face in this one- it's one of my favorites of his- a real smile with his little dimple showing...)
Love all of our faces in this one.
Ollie was making faces all night- so funny.
Christie, Steve and the birthday girl- Karen.
Such a fun day- I was not going to sit home all day (and end up cleaning the house or something) for this one!
P.S. I still don't feel older than 25-ish...

We had a fun day for Ollie's birthday...This cake was custom designed by him: monster trucks, sprinkles and purple frosting. Oh yeah- and the inside is strawberry flavor.
We got to go to the Draper Temple open house and then went to lunch at Spaghetti Factory- Ollie's favorite. He always asks to go eat where the trolleys are. Christie, Megs and Grammy and Grandpa came too.
They let us bring the cake in and we all sang "Happy Birthday." He smiled and stared at me frozen like this the whole time because I was filming him. So funny.
I said "hug your brother!" Looks like one person was more obedient than the other...
Then we headed to Boondocks for a little game playing with Elli, Benny and Addie. Grammy and Grandpa came too- he has so much fun with them!
We forgot to bring his presents, so he got to open them right before he went to bed.
Let's just say that Ollie is stocked in the monster truck and car department!
Birthday kisses for Daddy.
