8.5

My "little lady" is 8 and a HALF today!..this also means I've been a mom for that long and that simple fact fills me so much joy...
Olivia is the epitome of a wonderful daughter and one of the biggest blessings we have received as a family. She is smart, sassy, funny, beautiful, caring...and every possible (positive) adjective there is to say.
Olivia LOVES to read, she is my little book worm and really enjoys the Dork Diaries and Wimpy Kids series; I've already lost count of how many books she has made me buy her and I love that about her.
She is an amazing big sister to both Gaby and Oliver and has slowly turned into a little mommy to her little brother. She loves singing, dancing and everything art and has the best personality out of everyone in the family.
She has her own sense of fashion, which is a hippie-like style; loves long skirts, dresses, flower prints, etc.. and I love to see her loving herself the way she does.
She is also a bit of a drama queen and is currently in an awkward "pre-teen" stage (that's right..8 going on 12..or 15!), where she gets involved in silly girl arguments at school, which preoccupy her more than they should...I'm sure (*I hope*) this stage will end soon but it can be very exhausting.. teaching her to "pick her battles" can be so challenging sometimes.
Olivia does great in school and is really loving 3rd grade; she does hate homework (who doesn't?!?) but is an incredibly responsible student with perfect attendance so far! (yay Olivia!)
I'm so proud to be Olivia's mom and pretty much everything she does makes me happy (except for the night time battles!) and I can only hope that she continues to be the sweet person she is and can share her happiness with the world!
Happy *half* birthday Olivia! You're amazing!
