The one where Olivia is ONE!

Just a year ago today I was showing this little girl off to all our hospital visitors. She was wide awake the entire day and would just stare into my eyes. She had already shown us what a sweet little girl she would turn out to be.  So much has changed! I'm so thankful I've had a whole year of snuggling her, kissing her, making her laugh, showing her off, watching her grow. There are no words to describe how much I love this little girl. I mean, what's not to love? She is fantastic!

Dear Olivia,

Thank you for the joy and light you have brought us every day for a whole year. I can't imagine our little family without you.

You can be so sweet and are such a little schiester. You have a gentle spirit and an adventurous nature. You love to explore and try new things. You'll eat just about anything, except green beans.  You just can't get on board with those. You aren't afraid of anything. And you make your opinions known as well.

You love to dance. You love when your Daddy and Mama dance with you.  You give big wet kisses and love sharing your food.  Swing seems to be your favorite so far.

You love to read and play with your toys.  You love knocking down your blocks, throwing your balls and chasing them (along with anything else you can grab).  You still love your pacifier and playing peek-a-boo.  You have the best laugh ever!

Baby girl, you are my world! I just love how sweet and snuggly you are. Please don't ever lose that.

All my love, always,
