This post should be published over a month ago, but just as I decided to start writing this blog again close to Oli’s birthday, we had some technical problems. Well, here we are and I still want to publish what I wrote for Oli’s second birthday.
My little traveler is now 2 years old. Oh, and what an amazing two years has it been. Oli certainly isn’t the easiest kid ever. There are always some challenges of every kind present. But ever since the day he entered our lives, not a single day was quiet again. With his dark, almost black and always lively eyes, he’s always up to something. And we all like that. We like the liveliness he brought into our lives.
He’s so happy about everything. And at the same time can get mad also because of anything. He loves to dance and play. And at the same time can be inconsolable because his brother took his toys away from him. Oh, and he’s the cuddliest kid ever. He’s using every chance he has to get into a lap and have a hug. There are some surprising things he understands and are not usual for his age and there is other everyday stuff, like eating with a spoon that he doesn’t seem to want to understand! Well, who would blame him, eating with hands is way much funnier.
We’ve been to quite a few adventures as a family of four now and Oli is a great travel companion. But, of course, in true Oli’s fashion, traveling with him always brings challenges. From starting to choke because of eating too much sand on the beach in Morocco to spending a night in a hospital in Thailand. I’m telling you, there’s always something with our Oli.
But, there is always so much joy because of you, dear boy. With your big, open heart, you help us see more. Can’t wait to watch you growing up and getting to know you better and better. Even though I wouldn’t mind freezing the time and holding you in my arms for an eternity.
Happy birthday, Oliver!
