Oscar is FOUR

Our crazy Oscar Man is four years old! Holy cow!  This one has his own unique and perfect personality. He’s insanely lovable, yet very strong willed. He loves to do things independently, unless he doesn’t.  He’s amazingly friendly. We cannot go anywhere without him stopping strangers and saying, “My name is Oscar. What’s your name??”  He loves meeting people and chatting with them. Walt is also a good little friend. He even wanted to invite his teacher to his birthday party 🙂

Things Oscar is into these days:

  • All things Power Rangers
  • Reading books (via mom or dad) and writing his letters
  • Keeping up with Walt doing whatever he’s doing
  • Throwing and hitting a baseball
  • Kicking a soccer ball
  • Lately, hitting a golf ball (thanks, Camp Gilmer!)
  • Picking out his own clothes
  • Trying lots and lots of foods (but really only eating about 10 things)

Perhaps I’m overcompensating a bit for fearing that Oscar will get less attention than his big brother, Walt. As such, Oscar’s birthday celebration lasted a whole week and then some.

We started with his actual birthday — going to Mi Cocina for some crunchy tacos (his request). We opened presents at home, which included a karaoke machine and walkie talkies. Even though Oscar can’t read, he picked up on the karaoke concept instantly. I foresee lots of fun karaoke parties in our future!

Then, on Saturday, we had a fun morning rearranging his birthday party. Thanks to some very welcome, but very unexpected rain (and thunder), we had to make some quick decisions to move his party from a splash/water park to somewhere indoors. The party basically ended up being in a rec room with a ton of sports balls and limbo and the kids loved it. Oscar loved having his friends there.

Sunday we had a mini family party at our neighborhood pool. Nana and Papa and our friends, The Allen’s, came to join us.

Flash forward to the following Friday and Oscar got to do his Celebration of Life at school. We always look forward to these ceremonies. Oscar gets to walk around the sun four times and tell cool things that happened each year.

Oscar is such a joy in our family. He keeps us all entertained and has lots of love to share too. We love you, Oscar!
