Today you are THREE - Happy 3rd Birthday, our funny & sweet Oliver John.

I love your crazy energy; the way you can just run laps for hours, circling the house and making your brother laugh.

I love the way you can also have such concentration - sitting quietly, intently building a puzzle or 'reading' yourself a book.

I love your funny sayings and your sweet little voice as you chat away to us. You still sound mostly Australian to me, but I wonder how your accent is going to develop over this next year.

Over the past 5 months, I've loved seeing you find your feet in your new role as big brother. It can be intense at times, but seeing the love and fierce protection you have for baby Austin has made me so, so happy.

I love your passion for adventures - every single morning, you ask me 'know what we doing today? Where we going?'.

And I love, love, love your impish grin.

Your Dadda and I are so proud of you, big boy. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store!

Oliver as a newborn, at one year & two years old...
