Oh Ollie, today you are FIVE! A true handful. My big boy. My wild one. You are all boy; energetic and full of crazy faces and funny noises and sometimes just plain old crazy. Yet despite your wild side, you know how to focus and you're actually quite shy in unfamiliar social situations. You're an observer just like your mama was as a kid. You love to sit down at your table and draw detailed picture after picture or practice your writing or learn new things in your workbook. You love making things for people and are forever depositing 'jewelry' or other things you think I might love on my desk. You love making treasure maps and jumping on the trampoline and running through the sprinkler. You give hugs and whisper I love you mum in the most unexpected of moments. You and your brother tease each other endlessly but you're also best friends and on the rare occasion Austin takes a nap, you ask constantly if you can wake him up because you miss him and you're bored. And your baby sister - you simply adore her. You tell her she's cute every single day and I hope your protectiveness over her lasts for life. 

Five years ago today you made your very long, drawn out arrival into this world and took my breath away. Our sweet little guy, never did I imagine back then what you would teach us about this old life thing. Dadda and I love you to the moon and back - Happy Birthday, Oliver John!
