We celebrated Oliver’s birthday with cheap party decorations from the Dollar Store (including the official “birthday goblet” that everyone uses on their special day), stacks of coconut pancakes for breakfast and a caramel apple bundt cake (made by big brother) for dessert that night. We walked into town for a bag for of penny candy and sat on a bench to soak up the sun while we ate our our treats. We sang “happy birthday” several times throughout the day, and were surprised when Aunt Rhiannon showed up with a special birthday snack. We hugged and we kissed and we cherished the little life that means so much to us all.
And though it was just a normal Tuesday for most people, for us, it was a day to celebrate our sweet baby-O.
