Ollie was born March 23, 2004 at 9:43pm. He weighed 8 pounds and was 20 inches. His labor was my easiest. As a baby he liked to be held. A lot.
I started the Month pictures with Ollie. (thanks to Amber) I've come a long way since then, huh.
Ollie has always had amazing hair. I am really jealous actually.
This is one of my favorite portraits of Ollie. He is One.
One of my favorite things about baby Ollie was, 1. He would play with your hair when you fed him(by breast or bottle). 2. He was a Mommas boy. I say was, cuz now he has turned to the dark side(Daddy's boy)
Ollie always makes you feel like a rock star when you come home. He always gets you with a happy shriek of "MOM!!!!"( or dad)It really makes you feel good about yourself.
This is one of our Christmas pictures. He has always been the model. But on his clock only. You can't force it or you will not get ONE picture, trust me. There are many grand kid pics where I'm holding him down screaming.
Oh Ollie. This says it All. When he was a toddler he was pretty angry all the time. I realize now his brain was to big for his little body. He was pretty mad that he couldn't communicate what he was thinking. When he'd get in trouble for something he would give us "the silent treatment". It would start with a dirty look, then he would go under the table, Point at you and mouth the words he would've liked to have said to you. Oh I miss those days. P.S these pics are when he got into my make up, then got mad at me for laughing.
There is nothing like Ollie's laugh. It is The cutest!
Ollie Loves his big brother Max. They are best friends. Max snubbed for years though. He said When Ollie turns 3, I'll ask him to be my friend and he'll say Yes. And it was true. I hope they remain this close forever.
There is so much to say about this boy. I am sure your bored by now, but I'm going on.
Ollie is my cuddle buddy. We love to get his blankie, snuggle on the couch and watch Spongebob. He gives the best kisses. He is really into the double kiss on the cheek
(think European style)He thought of it on his own too. He loves to be funny and perform.(on his terms) Ollie's one wish that he always wishes for is, that people will listen to him. 1. because he's bossy. 2. Cuz he likes the attention. When he grows up he wants to be a Director(like his Dad). That pretty much means he will have people listening to him all day, his dream come true! By the way, now that Ollie his 5 he wants to be 10.
I love you shorty. You really have no idea how much.
Thanks to you who braved through this long post. C'mon it was worth, right?
