Today is Olivia's 9th birthday! My little lady is at the last of the "single digits" and she couldn't be happier about it even if she tried!
Olivia is SUCH a wonderful person and can light up a whole room with her beautiful smile; she truly is my best friend and is so much like me in so many things. The more she grows, the more affinity we find in each other and that makes me so happy.
Olivia is so inquisitive and has some good antenas for ears...nothing gets by her.. really.. NOTHING! I really love that I can have mature conversations with her and get pretty good feedback about particular situations or scenarios; she really rocks!
Olivia is also incredibly friendly, sweet, very family oriented and such a joy to be around! I love the way she views life and how energetic and positive she is; I wish I could be more like her!
At age 9, Olivia is into art, Legos, music (her favorite artists are Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift), singing karaoke, going to the movies and all things iPad!
Aside from it being Olivia's birthday, today is also the day I celebrate the anniversary of becoming a mother; which is by far one of the biggest and most fulfilling accomplishments of my life. My kids have taught me so much and I know this is only the beginning. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be a mother to my two girls and cute little boy and every time they celebrate another birthday, I can't help but thank God for these amazing gifts that keep on giving!
Happy Birthday, Olivia! You're so awesome!
