bright copper kettles

here are a few of our favourite things about our almost six week old (!!!!!) oliver;

the adorable noise he makes after he sneezes. its like a little shout of relief. he's been doing it since day one and its probably the cutest thing i've ever heard. i need to record it.

the beginnings of real smiles he's been showing off a bit in the past week or so.

his nose.

the rolls that are developing on his thighs and his awesome double chin. he's gaining weight well. (we'll find out exactly how much at his appointment in a couple of days.)

his receding hair line. he's got the cutest little old man hair.

the fact that he calms down and listens and/or falls asleep when we play music such as ray lamontagne, james vincent mcmorrow and alexi murdoch. we listened to alexi murdoch for a few hours when i was in labour. apparently it made an impression.

the faces he makes, the best of which i managed to catch:


you're a delight, ollie!
