Olivia at 6 months

It’s hard to believe that my baby is SIX today!!! (Please don’t tell her that I called her my “baby”. She doesn’t care for that term of endearment.)

I remember so clearly that day she was born. What a beautiful day! I remember being so happy to hold her right away. I remember not being able to sleep in the hospital and just our alone time at night and the lights of the city as she snuggled in my bed.

So much has happened in those six years since those sleepless nights. Some things have changed and my Liv has grown so much in so many ways. Yet some things have stayed the same — that determination, sense of fairness, smile & giggle that were there from the start I still see in my growing girl today. What a blessing it has been to be her mother for the last six years. I look forward to the many years that lay ahead.

Happy Birthday, my sweet Olivia! Mama, Dad, Christian (and Pixar) love you SO MUCH!
