Night before the birthday

Oliver came to me before bed and asked me to take his picture one last time before he turned 7.  Um, yeah!  You don't have to ask me twice.  This little guy carries the weight of the world on his shoulders some days.  When I tuck him in at night he gets emotional as he tells me all the things he's worried about.  And his nighttime prayers are always so heartfelt.  Then I try to reassure him and coax him back to childhood with silly songs and stories and raspberries on his tummy.  Don't grow up too fast my sweet Ollie Bear.

Hope he doesn't get ulcers from worrying. He's so young to be worrying so much. Glad he feels he can talk to your about them.
