"Handsome Outfit!"

Christian got Oliver dressed for church this morning and after he finished, he pulled Oliver off his changing table and said, "Handsome outfit!" So, for the next 30 minutes before we left, Oliver was running around the house repeating, "Handsome outfit!" Well, the first time he ran past me I said, "Handsome boy!" He stopped right there and very seriously said, (I can't recall now if he was wagging his finger at me or not.) "No, it's not a handsome boy, Momma, it's a handsome outfit." And he was off again. So, in tribute to his Sunday outfit this morning and some other gems this week, here goes:



We got him a potty this week and though we are not yet "training" him, he is VERY excited about it and is always asking to go to the bathroom. I guess I should take that as a sign???

Ready to brave the cold...

He kept bringing me his jammies and asking me to put them on him.

I'll second that "handsome outfit" comment, but he's wrong about it not also being a handsome boy. What a beautiful little guy!

You're both right, handsome outfit and handsome boy! He's so cute, I love the multiple jammies and the winter gear pictures. You've motivated me to get going on the potty thing!

He is so handsome!! But his speaking is awesome. It's so great when they learn to talk and give you such a vista into their personality that you've been dying to see.

I remember what a handsome little guy Chris was when I'd get him ready for Church. Good memories.

Oh Reb, what a handsome kid. And outfit. Both. I love hearing this stuff about him. I am impressed about the potty. If we tried that with Jeff, he would drop kick it.

very handsome indeed. His photos make him look like such an enthiastic kid.

And mom, when you 'second' a comment, you don't need to repeat your comment twice to show you're seconding it. I'll explain next time I see you.

what a cutie! I love kids in church clothes, there is just nothing cuter. I love how clearly he speaks, what a smartie.

That is one cute little boy! I guess it's 'big' boy now that he's got his OWN toilet!
