Happy Birthday, Oliver!

As of 6:52am, Oliver has completed his first journey around the sun. He was born at home three days after his due date, and weighed in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces. I first announced his birth here, but never got around to sharing more photos of those first few hours/days.

Weebu still hanging out in utero on his due date:
39.5 weeks pregnant

Sporting his first diaper (Thirsties cover + prefold)

Getting weighed the next day:
7 pounds, 5 ounces

Taking a nap in my arms (his kewpie curl has since been replaced with a mohawk of sorts XD)

Something I've done with all the Sprouts is take their picture on the exact moment of their birth each year. Since Oliver was born pretty early, I was hoping to get a photo of him peacefully asleep. However, I think he knew today was a special day as he was already bright-eyed and bushy-tailed...
Exactly 1 year old!

Happy Birthday, Weebu. I hope your second year on earth is twice as blessed as your first. I love you so much!
