One

I can hardly believe it.  My baby girl turns one today.  Last night Bryan and I sat and looked through all the pictures we've taken of her throughout the year.  This teeny tiny little thing in the picture above doesn't even look like Olivia now.  She's changed and grown so much.

Here are a few things she currently loves...
...birdies!
..."Moo, Baa, La! La! La!" by Sandra Boynton
...holding our hands so she can walk
...holding our hands so she can run
...scooting everywhere on her bum
...laughing.  She hiccups when she laughs too much.  Just like Mommy.
...being outside
...playing peek-a-boo around corners
...oatsies with blueberries... but mostly just the blueberries
...crackers
...milk
...socks and shoes
...saying "uh oh" when she drops something... and sometimes just because it's fun to say
...sucking her thumb


Olivia, 

You are one tiny little girl!  But I love you even more than the day you were born.  You are beautiful and smart and funny and sweet.  Happy 1st Birthday sweet girl!

Love,
Mommy

P.S. I have a feeling time is about to pick up speed.  Please try not to grow up too fast.
