When I Grow Up
There is nothing Oliver would rather do than follow Chad around all day. As soon as Chad gets home, he says, "Ollie, I need help!" and Ollie is immediately at his side to go wherever Dad goes and do whatever Dad does. If he notices Chad doing something without him, he always joins right in - just like the pictures above. Both times he ran to grab his own tools to help Chad.
Tonight Chad was gathering his suitcase to leave for Houston, and Ollie ran to get his shoes for him. Then Ollie picked up the suitcase handle and started carrying it to the door saying, "Go Airpane! Go Airport!" Chad picked him up and explained that Daddy was going to the airport, but he was staying home. A huge sob erupted from Oliver and he put his little arms around Chad's neck and cried long and hard into it.
I think those two really get each other. I hope Ollie always aspires to be like his Daddy.
