Growing Out On A Limb

Happy 2nd Birthday to Oliver!

It seems unreal that it was two years ago that I was at the hospital, awaiting your arrival.  It’s so cliched it’s sickening but I’m really not sure where those two years have gone. 

I love watching you learn new things, try new words, figure out new games.  Your little mind is like a crazy little sponge that just puts me in awe of you every day. 


Here are a few things about you right now…

  • You like to sing your ABCs (mommy can tell you’re musical)
  • You are starting to count things, not just reciting the numbers to ten
  • You love to eat, especially pasta and grapes and “oh-goot”
  • You are extremely good at sitting at timeout (although you rarely need to go there)
  • You are a very kind big brother and show concern and love for him already
  • Your favorite things:  trucks, buses, and trains, especially Thomas!  You like to “choo choo” all around the house and like to point out the trucks and buses when we are driving
  • You like The Wiggles and dance parties with mommy (which makes mommy verrrry happy, by the way)
  • You love to make people laugh
  • You love kisses and tickles
  • Your favorite person after mommy and daddy is “Papa” (and he loves you too)! 
  • You aren’t afraid to try new things, like words and toys
  • You are sometimes shy to play with other kids at first, maybe because you are so good at playing by yourself
  • And we found out today that you likely need glasses so you continue to be good at keeping us on our toes!

We love you!
