William Oliver - Happy 1st Birthday
William Oliver - One Year Old
I have spent so much of this last year on this blog writing about my year with him. Here is my post recounting the events of January 2, 2011.
Will, 2011 has been crazy, but I think the Lord gave you to me as he did to show me a new love and how to love you and others during the chaos. You have been such an encouragement to me. Everyone loves your smiles and your sweet disposition. I love holding you in your favorite spot - perched on my left hip (much like your big sister), left thumb in your mouth, nuzzling your head into my shoulder (and most likely smiling coyly at whoever is around). The relationships I have with you and your siblings are so special. Our relationship is marked by a strong commitment and a true tenderness. We had to fight for a lot this year, but we are as close as can be. I love you, my sweet baby Will.
I ordered a cake for Will that was very similar to Millie's first cake.
I love that Wal-Mart gives a little cake for him to dig into.
All the cousins came to eat pizza and cake to celebrate Will's birthday.
Snuggling with Ddad and Mimi
Aunt Jenn and Will
Love, love, love how the Lord has blessed us with such fun children.
Time for CAKE!!!
I thought this was so funny. I guess he was making his birthday wish.
Hmmmm....wonder what this tastes like.
I like it!!!
Looking like he might go into sugar shock
Very sad when Mommy and Daddy took the cake away.
After cake, Will had plenty of help opening his presents
Millie drew two pictures for Will and then "helped" him open them.
Happy 1st Birthday, Will.
Mommy and Daddy love you so much.
