A big gift he's been asking about is a guitar. We watched Teen Beach 2 and he used to love One Direction ("Why did Zayn leave?"--Oliver) and started talking about a family band. Oliver said he wants to sing, play guitar, and be on a show. His personality is a bit hammy at times, so why not?
Corey and I bought him a guitar and a Lego Oliver had been eyeing. We got him a small cake and ice cream from Publix. We sang and let him open his presents. And that was that. He was super excited about all of it and maybe we can put off parties with friends a bit longer.
So Oliver, you are awesome. You're sweet and cuddly and still love to give tight hugs and mouth kisses. We all laugh at your silly faces, random jokes, and made up words. We love your enthusiasm for running, innocent questions about math (what's 2+tree?), and the hilarious dancing. Maybe bright lights are in your future...and maybe they're not, but we will always support your dreams.
