Here is something - my son is a....POINTER!!!! It started with Andrew and I asking him, "Where's the Christmas tree?" It didn't matter where he was, near a Christmas tree or not, that question would prompt him to point..at nothing really. Well, then he started pointing at random people. It's evolved into more of a jab now. He'll get his little finger out there and just start poking at the air. He did it to a lady at church the other day. Quite embarrassing.
Also, Oliver is an ADVENTURER..you'll notice him climbing through a chair in the picture. He's always wanting to get into small spaces, such as under my desk, his crib, the Christmas tree. He once tried to crawl under the pack n play.. I guess the three inches of clearance were not enough for his head.
Most of all, this little dude is a BLESSING. I never would have thought it possible to enjoy all the labor (before and after!) that motherhood brings, but it's just so much fun! I mean, it's exhausting and scary and smelly, too, but all of those things rolled up and tied with love equal the greatest blessing and responsibility I could ever know. Andrew and I acknowledge almost daily how amazing it is that God knows and cares enough for us that we were given the opportunity to experience parenthood. Talk about adventure. We are lusty adventurers.
