long time no see ;)

sorry guys! it's been like three weeks! my bad! :)
so, on to the story of alexei's doings:
we went to the beach with grandma and grandpa and uncle john, aunt kristin and the three of us and had such a fun time. we went to north padre and stayed at the island house condominiums - the only bummer was it was too short. just one full day down there, but it was worth it. we'll definantly have to make it a family tradition. so here are some pics of alexei at the big water and with la familia.
notice the matching swimsuits. that was one of nick's father's day gifts. they were so cute. ;)

we were so proud of ourselves. no one got sunburned. yey us! we ohlson ladies have some pale genes. :) enjoying lunch at a seafood place nick scoped out for us. we enjoyed the shrimp alot.

we love uncle john;)
it was so fun getting to visit with kristin and john - they came down from dallas for the long weekend. looking forward to having christmas with them here in austin!
alexei has gotten into his johnny jump up - he has finally started to jump and swing and all sorts of fun stuff. before he was just into the toy that was attached to it. ;)

he is starting to reach for toys that aren't within arms reach now.
and he loves mirrors... and kissing that cute baby that is looking back at him;)
many happy moments spent in this stand up saucer whatever you call it. thanks to cousin tricia for lending it to us! it frees mommy up to get dinner ready occasionally. :)
i love this outfit on him. all boy! daddy and alexei at the park for a family gathering - unfortunately i didn't get any really good pics of alexei with the rest of the family - we'll work on that at greatgrandma's birthday party in a couple of weeks. she is turning 85 yrs old!
well i need to go and change ANOTHER poopy diaper. today has got to be a close to record day. not really. it just feels like it at times. but at least it's a cute little booty.
love you guys. thanks for your patience with me getting this out there.
oh, and thanks for praying! we are closing on our new house in milwood on thursday and moving in on nov. 10th. we have a potential tenant coming to look at our current house on wednesday so be praying that works out if she is the right one and also for patience, energy and time to pack everything up with a teething but very cute 4 1/2 month old! :)
take care! - morgan (for the rest of us)

4 months old! can you believe it?

hello, everyone! sorry it's taken me so long to post again! we have had a whirlwind couple of weeks!
alexei had his 4 month check up and shots yesterday. sad. :( he is looking good, the dr. said. he is 15lbs 11oz. and is 27 " long( his height is 95%! ) he is hard at teething, so between that and shots yesterday he isn't feeling super swift right now. lots of mommy cuddle time. so this might be brief. feel free to askme to fill in the details in person.
update on the house i mentioned in the last blog entry: God answered some very specific prayers as we were considering it and He paved the way for us to buy it - closing date is november 1st! we are super excited - it's over in milwood, about a mile from my parents, so it will literally be over the river and through the woods to grandma's house we go - at least over a creek and through the greenbelt, but from a kid's perspective it might as well be a river and woods. :) ask us more details later, no time now. :)
alexei, grandpa matt, grandma katy, and i (morgan) got to go down to san antonio and visit with alexei's great grandpa gus and his wife gardis and great aunt ann and her husband martin. it was a good trip and fun to catch up with everyone.
here are some more of bobby's pics i promised from their visit here last month.

getting so big! he will hang out in his bumpo seat for all of 2 minutes before he gets fussy. i really wish he would like it more. maybe once he can sit up a little sturdier on his own he'll like it more.
this is at our new house - we were getting it inspected (it passed the test;) we'll take more pics when we move in.
daddy sharing his devotional time with alexei. he likes to listen to us read and is only slightly damaging the pages when he grabs at them;)
some more of bobby's pics from our time together at mozart's. this is the steering wheel from his jogging stroller. such a guy. he already grabs the wheel like he is going to drive off.

the johnny jumper is a fun toy for him right now. he mostly likes the lights, sounds and buttons on the toy, not quite into the jumping part yet, but he'll probably figure that out soon.
hanging with grandpa matt
cuddling with grandma katy
totally conked out! :) so cute.
ok, that's all for now folks! off to entertain my four month old.
