Oliver is Three!

Oliver turned three today! We celebrated his birthday yesterday with a monster party at our house. We had a really nice time with some very good friends. Oliver was too excited to nap before his party, but he still managed to make it through without any major meltdowns, so I consider the party a success.

Getting ready for the party

Make a wish!

Some of our guests stuck around for some post-party pizza.

Here are some additional party pictures:

Here is a video of Oliver that I took today:

He is such a sweet and silly boy. It is amazing that he is three already. I am sometimes taken aback with how old he has gotten. While his speech is not always clear, he is very full of things to say. He makes up stories (often about monsters), sings silly songs, and talks about his days at daycare. He loves to be like Henry, but he also has his own mind and sometimes chooses to do the opposite of what Henry wants. Most of the time, though, they play well together and I am so happy that they have each other.

It seems like just yesterday that we were taking this tiny baby home from the hospital.

And then he was one and getting into everything...

Then two and still getting into everything!

It is going to be an adjustment for me to remember that he is THREE now. That seems so old. I think he'll still be my baby for a while, though.

And just for fun, here is a silly video that I took a few weeks ago:

It is so much fun to watch these videos. It looks like Oliver's third birthday wore him out!

Happy Birthday, Oliver. Sweet dreams.

Oh, dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. What I wouldn't give to have spent as much little-kid time with this beautiful guy as we were blessed to spend with your other beautiful guy. Happy birthday, Ollie!
