Happy Birthday, Olivia!!! (Two days late...)

It's hard to believe a year has gone by since our precious Olivia Ann arrived. It has gone incredibly fast, and given she's still such a little peanut, she seems too small to be one already. Yet, we are so thankful that we can celebrate her miraculous little life. We are so blessed to report that she is a happy and healthy little girl!

For my little Livie,

My sweet baby, you are such an incredible blessing to us. Not a day goes by that I don't praise God for the miracle of you.

You are such a happy little peanut...your constant smile brings me joy, your sweet little nuzzles melt my heart, and your little giggle makes my heart sing. I love watching you play with your big sister, climb on Baxter, "talk" on the phone, crawl all over with a mischevous grin on your face, and sleep peacefully in your bed.

I love how much you love your daddy, and how your face lights up when Emily walks in the room.

I love your teeny tiny feet, your little round belly, your soft little hands, your beautiful little face, your deep blue eyes, and your soft fuzzy hair.

I love that you still like to sit in my lap and be snuggled, and I love your precious little "kisses."

I love that God gave us you, and I promise never to take that for granted.

Olivia Ann, I love you with all my heart. I am so thankful to be your mommy, and I know daddy feels the same way too. Happy 1st Birthday, baby girl!
