5.5

Gosh! I don't know where to start with this post...Olivia is just such an incredible person that it's really hard to describe her in a few words...
She is turning 5 1/2 today and it amazes me to see what my "little lady" has become and how much she has grown in this 66 months of life...
I know all moms are supposed to say their kids are smart, but Olivia really blows me away with how intelligent she is...not only is she at the top of her class academically (she has been tested for giftedness and tested positive twice), but she is also incredibly mature emotionally speaking and has such great capacity of processing and interpreting ideas.. She is also a solution seeker and always seems to have an answer to every situation...whether it's trivial or not.. (she gets that from her daddy and I love it!)...
Olivia loves to read and write.. her handwriting gets more beautiful every day and her reading skills have improved so much since she started Kindergarten (she's reading- and understanding- levels 1 & 2 books on her own)... it's crazy to see how much kids can learn in school and how much they change in just a few months...
Olivia is fully bilingual but she still favors Spanish and is so proud of her heritage (which makes me very happy, of course!).. She loves dancing, singing and being the center of attention.. She's such a negotiator and a very persuasive individual.. I can already see how all these skills will do her some good in her future...
She is incredibly athletic and loves exercise (she plays tennis and does gymnastics)..Olivia is very active and her energy just never fades.. She is quite the artist and the intricacy of her drawings is amazing at times (I should post some of her art on here!)...
I am so proud to be Olivia's mother...she is such a great daughter and an awesome big sister...she's definitely the leader in the pack and that makes me very happy....
I can only hope God continues to give me the wisdom I need to raise her right.. Thank you, God for this wonderful daughter... She is such a blessing! ;)
