To Ollie on his 9th bithday

Happy Birthday to my Oliver Christian Nielson.
I love you more than you know.
You are kind, gentle, polite, pleasant, and you have a very brave heart.
I was so happy when you came into my life.
You were born on a very cold and snowy day in East Brunswick, New Jersey.  
You were born on my bed with daddy right beside me (and a midwife named Pam)
You were quiet and so so sweet. 
You slept almost the whole night through under my arm while the 
snow piled up outside our window.
Daddy didn't have to go to work the next morning because there was so much snow.
We were cozy and so happy.
Your sisters were also in love with you.
Everything was perfect, until the mohel/pediatrician showed up 
10 days later--but that is for another post for another time.
I love you son.
