My sweet little Oliver turned 6 yesterday.
He was born the cuddliest kid I've ever known.
It might have been those ultra soft cheeks that helped us cuddle with him.
But he still loves to snuggle and give hugs and kisses- many, many times a day.
And yes- he will sit on our laps all the time without even a pause or invitation.
He is funny and is always smiling.
He LOVES playing with friends and makes friends with anyone he meets.
He will play with Elliott and his friends like they are his too.
He is very confident.
He is the one who is always dressed with his shoes on before I'm out of bed.
And he is the first awake and has just recently dared to come downstairs by himself- usually to start the wii. He is very proud of this fact.
I know he will help me with (almost) anything I ask.
He tells me stories from kindergarten all day.
He is learning to read and notices (and tries) words everywhere.
He loves reading name tags of people at restaurants and stores.
Ollie loves soccer and is always asking when the next season starts.
He is always playing his cd player and changing out the cds.
On our growth chart he is a little taller than E was on each of his stages-
I wonder if this means he'll be taller?
He helps Lincoln all the time- he has taken it upon himself to be his translator and opener of snacks.
He is a smart little boy and catches on to everything pretty quick.
I feel so lucky to have Oliver Jack in our family.
He is great and we love him!
