Happy Birthday Livvy Bug!

Today is my baby girl’s birthday.
She is a year old and I just cannot believe it.
This year has been a whirlwind, full of change and loss and lots of love.
day Olivia was born is still so fresh in my mind, I can think back and relieve the memories/feelings/thoughts from that day.
This little bug has been the sweetest addition to our family and we have thanked God every day for sending us this little angel.


Olivia at 12 months:

*drinking whole milk out of a sippy cup like a pro
*eating “people food” instead of baby food…her favorites include bananas, green beans, and apple sauce, but she has yet to turn her nose up to anything offered
*not walking yet, though she will take a few steps here and there when we try really hard to get her to!
*still sleeps like a champ, but must have a paci and her giraffe lovey to do so (a habit I’m not looking forward to breaking…)
*loves to accessorize and spends a lot of her free time trying to put shoes on her feet
*babbles all the time but the only words we have heard so far are momma, dada, and baba (though the only one she says constantly is dada…he’s her favorite!)
*her hair sticks up all over the place still, but at least I can tame it by sticking it in a couple of piggies
*she’s already a bit of a diva…tell her no or take something away from her and she will cry like you’ve deeply offended her! (and the second you give it back, she’s all smiles and giggles)
*absolutely loves bath time…if the bathroom door is open, she is in there attempting to climb in…if she’s sad, just tell her its bath time and she immediately makes a beeline for the bathroom!

Olivia is very much a sweetheart and I am so lucky that I get to be her mom!
Happy birthday Livvy Boo!
