Welcome friends and family! We decided to move from our previous site at http://www.babysites.com/sites/babyolden to this one and we are glad to have you here so we can share our lives with those who are not close by. Things are always hectic and we feel like we are always on the go. Donovan is such a happy baby - we are truly blessed. To see pictures and posts from before he was born and the first few months, please visit the previous site!
We found that Donovan is a mostly good traveler. For Thanksgiving, we traveled from DC to South Carolina to spend the holidays with the Olden clan. We were in Columbia for Thanksgiving and then traveled to Myrtle Beach for the remainder of the long weekend. Annee was very excited about this trip as she had never been to SC before. Thanksgiving was terrific and we had a nice time seeing everyone. Myrtle Beach was a lot of fun and we had a terrific view of the beach from our hotel suite. Donovan seemed to enjoy himself and spent one evening with Nana, PopPop and Auntie Heather while mom and dad got a night out alone. Below are some photos from our trip:
We've been on the go since returning home. Donovan and Annee still attend Gymboree two times a week as well as other Mommy and Me events around town. Donovan is very social and loves being around people. He is all smiles and can be a little ham. He is now 3 months old (15 pounds and 24 inches!) and we can't believe how much he's growing every day - we think he may even be teething! December brought a new first as Donovan got his first haircut given by Mommy. He is learning how to use his hands and is starting to grasp toys and learning that he can hit things and make them move. He is also sitting up very well already! He needs some support to keep from tipping over but nothing more than that. He loves to sit up and see everything that's going on - he's a very nosey (or curious) little boy. We are working on tummy time but he hates it as he can not see very much from that position, he'd rather sit.
He interacts with us so much and his little personality is shining through - he is a very laid back baby and we feel very lucky to have him in our lives. We can barely remember what it was like before him! We look forward to Christmas and taking the trip up to Boston so Donovan can meet all the Covino's!
