Oliver Turns 6!!!

Today is Oliver's 6th birthday.  That sweet, happy little baby has turned into a sweet, funny, creative, technically-minded, hard-working little man who loves his sister and brother dearly.  He is a joy to be with.  He and Lily play so well together (most days).  He has commented several times, "I just can't believe Brahm is real!  We have a REAL baby!"  He just LOVES Brahm.  And Brahm loves him!

We are celebrating Oliver this weekend.  Yesterday, he had a few friends over to party with Legos and to go swimming.  We are so thankful for wonderful friends in his life!  Several of these boys he met this year in kindergarten, and they have become really good friends.  We are so grateful for Walton!  (his school)

We are having a family celebration today:  he requested French Puffs for breakfast (really YUMMY sugary-cinnamony-muffin things), and then we opened gifts.  He was able to put together FOUR new lego sets over the last two days!  Later this afternoon, we're eating at IHOP--at his request.  


  And we thought that since he's turning 6, this would be a good time for another interview.  Thanks for the idea, Erin!
