Oliver Turns 7

Today Oliver turns 7. By coincidence I’ve been working to merge our various collections of digital photos from various Macs into one uber-collection. Which, given that we bought our first digital camera the month before Oliver was born, has been a good review of his life so far.

The most amazing photo of Oliver, for me, is this one:

Oliver at 3 Days Old

It’s amazing because it was taken when he was three days old. After two days of lying motionless under a ventilated hood with tubes and wires strapped all over him, on the third day Oliver decided he was going to be okay; and so he was. This wasn’t a gradual phase into health, but rather a quantum leap into full-on babyhood. Indeed, as the expression you see there on his face suggests, he was a little taken aback by it all. As were we.

Happy Birthday Oliver!

Happy Birthday Oliver! We have a son almost the same age (turned seven this past April). It’s a fun time of life.

I am in tears looking at his picture. They grow up too fast! I miss not seeing Oliver on a regular basis.

I hope that he has a wonderful Birthday!
