Last week our Oliver celebrated his fifth birthday. It was especially exciting because Oliver has been counting down to his special day for months. Throughout the last year he taped up pictures from a LEGO booklet on my bedroom wall so I would know just what to get him along with his own drawings of what to buy. In the days leading up to his birthday he reminded me that birthday's "are really fun if there are balloons".
Oliver is a sweet boy who knows what he wants and I love that about him. He's the first to offer a compliment and a very obedient child. He wants to make good choices and I can't imagine loving him more. I'm happy to report that Oliver's birthday was a happy one. He woke to the gifts he was hoping for and even a new bike! We took him out for dinner and ate cake to celebrate five years with our darling Ollie boy.
