Happy *belated* Birthday, Oliver!

Life got busy this fall, like it always does.

Andy goes back to school and coaching and the kids and I go from having a 100% time Papa to a "couple of hours a day" Papa.

This year, Oliver started Saturday preschool, which he loves.  If there is an opportunity to paint--he's all over it.  We've got more Oliver paintings than I know what to do with!  I'm going to have to start gallery.

We've enrolled Oliver in some activities to help him burn some of his *excess* energy.  We did Pee-Wee Tennis this summer, then Lil' Kickers Soccer this fall.  He is currently enrolled in acro-balance class and L.O.V.I.N.G. it.  
More about that in another post.

One other big thing happened this fall, Oliver turned 4!

I really don't know where the last four years have gone, but I can tell you this--they have been over-flowing with joy because of this little guy.

It's been amazing to watch him grow, and change, and grow some more.  In fact, he's grow 4 inches since July!  We started to buy him 4T clothes because the 3T were too tight around his little belly--but 4T was too long so we had to roll the cuffs.  Fast forward a few months, now he has shot up in height without gaining an ounce and we have to roll the waist so his pants don't fall down!

Oliver is smart, curious and laughs easily.

Oliver is loving, energetic and makes everything a contest.

Oliver is stubborn, sensitive and makes friends easily.

And I love being his Mama.

Happy Birthday, little dude.

I hope all your wishes come true.
