2 years and counting

We recently celebrated Oliver's 2nd birthday. That's right ladies and gents, this kid is officially two! He's grown lots and lots and loves anything on wheels. He likes to learn new things, explore new places, and he's very keen of any park (especially those with swings). Blueberries are probably his favorite food, and, this year, his horizons have expanded to cake. Last year when he turned one he wasn't having it, but this year, he loved the strawberry, vanilla creme cake. He was also very intrigued by the candles.

Later on he discovered his card because it had a big "2" on it. "It's a 2!" he kept saying. Now we are working on putting up two fingers to show that you are 2. However, he knows that sign as "Peace" so we've got some explaining to do.

And this is how he spent some of his birthday afternoon, playing with his cars. This really is the life for Oliver.

It goes without saying that Oliver is one great kid. On the nights when Jess comes home after Oliver has gone to bed he asks, "What's the cutest thing Oliver did today?" My answer is always something new.
