Oliver has become an avid collector of Cars 2 Cars. He has all except 2 or 3. He's such a fan that he likes going onto YouTube and searching for homemade videos of children playing with the toys he has and doesn't have, so that he can learn more about them. There is a guy online who is a big Disney/Pixar collector that Oliver has begun following. His handle is "Blucollection" and Oliver loves to mimic the demonstrations he does. He brings his toys to watch and follow along. Here he is watching a Sidley the jet video from the Vlogger while holding his own Sidley. It's funny that in a world where Oliver doesn't see commercials (we have Tivo and we use Netflix, HBOgo, Amazon, etc. for television content) he has found a way to consume commercial content. He definitely uses it as a way to learn about the toys he doesn't have, and to nag mom and dad about them!
Claire is doing so much better after her big cold. That was a huge stresser for us but she pulled through with antibiotics. The greatest thing we can say about Claire is that she is a good sleeper. Much different than her older brother was. She usually goes to bed between 11pm and 1am, and sleeps in until 6am. So that's HUGE.
She spits up a ton like Oliver did and is getting a bit fussy due to acid reflux and gas. She's smiling already and loves to look into the eyes of the person holding her, smiling and cooing. She's a good eater now and is chunking up nicely.
