Today, my baby is a year old! Seriously I cannot believe I have a child that is a year old, not a baby anymore, a toddler. I am sitting here at work (yes, I have to work today, it sucks, but Joey is off all week, and is getting some quality daddy and Ollie time in) going over all the things that were taking place a year ago. I had trouble sleeping last night, kind of how it is when it is my birthday, so excited that it is hard to fall asleep. I finally fell asleep at around midnight, and then woke up at 4:05am, exactly 40 minutes after I had Oliver a year before. Me and Joey actually joked about waking up at 3:25am and wishing him a Happy Birthday. My mom has always called me at 11:38am on my birthday, but there is no way I will do that for Oliver!!!
Oliver is such a happy baby. We call him our little cheese ball. When we tell him to smile, he makes this cheesy smile showing his cute little teeth and scrunching his nose. He says a couple words: Dada, Mama, owsa (outside), baa (ball), and ha (Hi). We can really see his little personality coming out too. He loves to play with our cell phones and any TV remote control, but if we take it away from him, he throws a little tantrum! He also loves all types of food. I don’t think there is one food that he doesn’t like; he will eat anything that is put in front of him! He is almost waking on his own too! He will take a couple steps before falling to him bottom. But I can tell he is going to take off any day now!
His looks are changing all the time too. Sometimes I look at him and he looks exactly like Joey, then other times he looks like me, then other’s he is just Oliver.
I cannot wait to see what this year brings for us, to watch him grow and learn new things.
Happy Birthday Oliver!!! I love you will all my heart!
