Two years old!

Today feels bittersweet.  Two years ago today Oliver was born.  He came into the world via scheduled c-section and he was perfect.  I was excited to get to go to the hospital to meet him.  He didn't disappoint, he was absolutely adorable.

I still sometimes feel a bit of disbelief at the disease that is killing him.  How can a perfectly healthy little newborn turn into a two year old who can do little more than eat and sleep.  My heart broke a little the other day when Karen's status on Facebook said that she misses Oliver's smile.  *sigh*  Even though this will very likely be his last birthday, I hope that today will be a celebration of Oliver, and will be a day to remember when he is gone.

Thanks :)
I handled his birthday a lot better than I thought I would. It was a busy day though - I think that helps.
