In the twinkling of an eye, Ollie is 2. My baby is TWO!
He sleeps in til 9:30. Bless his heart. This is his mother's son.
greets me with a huge smile,
and says "I"(meaning Hi).
We say hi or "I", about 5 times back and forth to each other, before we start the day.
He gets so excited to eat, he simultaneously laughs and cries when I prepare his meals.
I can scarcely get any chores done because I'd rather tackle him every time he walks by. Or smother him and hold him on my lap. And play with him on the floor.
He's not teething anymore, so this stormy, temperamental child has been replaced by a sweetheart that melts my heart day after day with his sparkly set of pearly whites.
Basketball, baseball and soccer are his passions...making him quite the quintessential boy,
but he's got some quirks too--sometimes he will sit outside in his wagon or stroller for hours holding a stick.
He walks around saying "ldldldldldldldl". And when we ask him to say a word, like "nose" he says "noseldldldldldldl".
He has a voice inflection at the end of his words. Like banana.
"nah-NUH" (the nuh part of the word goes up 2 octaves).
He's fascinated by brother Twain. He always tries to help by putting the binky in Twain's eye. He somehow knows that this is going to be his special buddy.
He's my special buddy too and I can't wait til 9:30am to say "I" once again.
