Not knowing where , or if my old posts will show up ( because I haven't found them all ! ) , i will give a brief synopsis of who this little Ollie man is in these photos..
He is a just turned 1 year old on Oct. 18, who was born without optic nerves in his little blue eyes. He is sightless, although the extent of it will not be known until he can talk , and understand questions.
He was also born with other disablities, from what the neurologist believes, a stroke suffered while in his mommy's ( Liz ) tummy.. He has no use, though he has feeling, in his right hand/arm, and leg.. He , due to the disablity, and the blindess, is not able to sit up yet, and we will not know if he will be able to yet. Ollie is well loved, very much a happy little guy when he is getting his way, lol.. He , has had 2 major brain surgeries already, because of other neurological issues unrelated to the blindness.
But thru all these challenges, Ollie man has continued to surprise us with his depth of laughter, and his LOVE, love , love of music.. even his Mema's off key singing of " You are my Sunshine" which is he, and my, recognition song every time I see him, or tend to him. HE knows my voice, and he knows the song.. and we laugh, and dance and even take a good snuggle together and talk about quilting, and his aunts, and uncles here on the quilt board.. Many of you, whom he will have a special place in his heart because of the love you sent to complete that sensory quilt I made from your fabric pieces, and for Charisma , up in Washington state ( Hi neighbor from here in Oregon! ), who machine quilted it for Ollie, and our son , and Liz.. thats the scoop, so now that I figured out how to attach more of Ollie in photos, be on the look out for more updates at any given time..Blessings to you all!
I wanted to say I had our not so little, Ollie today for a little while. Mema missed him, and he whined, and pleaded, and begged his mommy to bring him over to his mema's house to have a play date.. She did..Yeah for me and Ollie!
I have some new photos, too that I am trying to figure out how to post here on the blog.. ackkkk, it's not letting me attach them the first two times.. So , maybe that charm is waiting here on the third time around.. wish me luck.. and if you dont see our little guys cute little face here, send me a PM if anyone knows what I am doing wrong, and why they wont show up on my page here.. Here goes.......ps .NOT attaching this third time either..
