We celebrated Oskar's birthday a little early this year because his Grandmother and Pop were visiting and we thought it would be more fun to have a party while they were here.  We celebrated early with cake and ice cream, and presents.  For his real birthday he said he wanted to play baseball, have donuts, and ride bikes so we did all three.

Joel came home for lunch and we went to the park to play baseball.  Oskar is really good.  He has a great swing and can hit the ball pretty often.  Every time he hits it he runs and slides on his belly.  It makes for pretty dirty clothes.

Ivy had a great time watching him play.

For his birthday celebration he got a construction cake!  With some help it turned out both delicious and fun to look at.

Ivy and Isla are about 5 weeks apart I think.  They're so cute!

Oskar felt left out so he joined them for some pictures.

Singing Happy Birthday

It's a little out of order but here is a video of Oskar pitching from earlier today.  I love that frozen frame that it ends on!

Oskar is a fantastic little boy.  He's hilarious and smart, he says I love you about 50 times a day, and he's FULL of energy.  He is a great big brother, only ever has lots of love for Ivy.  He loves baseball and riding his bike, reading books, and playing with little figurines.  He has a lot of fears still, thermostats, smoke alarms, the dark, etc. but we're trying to help him be brave.  He listens and remembers incredibly well.  We asked him some things about Jesus the other night for FHE and because he listened to the Primary songs that I sing him before bed he knew all the answers.  He's got a great vocabulary and continues to surprise me with the things that come out of his mouth.  His eating has come SOOOO far.  I'm so proud of him.  He feeds himself most of the time and will ask for food when he gets hungry.  He never throws up anymore and is a champ at taking his medicines.  We've got things to work on like listening and obeying, sharing, potty training, etc. but he is such a happy, curious, energetic boy and I love more than I can express.  He is such a blessing to me!

Jamie, you get more beautiful every time I see a picture of you. Seriously girl, I'm surprised Joel doesn't have to fight more people off. Happy Birthday to Oskar!
