Happy BIrthday, Oliver!!
My little boy turned 3 years old today. He has been quite an adventure. He was born with both heart and lung issues. For those first few weeks we thought we were going to lose him. Then at 6 weeks he was diagnosed with hearing loss. And then at 1.5 years he was diagnosed with Sanfilippo. But here he is at 3 - the best little boy in the world. He may be slow to warm up, but he will eventually come over with head down to hold your hand. He is has a quick temper, but can be easily calmed. He loves to bring people together to hug - even complete strangers. He has an infectious laugh. He is meticulous with his toys and is a total problem solver. He likes things a certain way - very Type A. He loves to cuddle and gives the biggest, if also the wettest, kisses. I am so incredibly blessed to call him my son.
We had another party for him tonight. Just our family and a cake. He loved when we sang "Happy Birthday" and ate the chocolate with buttercream icing cake. (Thank you Wegmans!)
