Happy Birthday Olivia

Today my youngest daughter, Olivia
turns 2 years old!
 Where did the time go?
She was born on a Monday night after we all watched the
Bachelor (well I kind of slept but heard everyone talking)
weighing over 8 pounds.
Even though she weighed a lot she was my easiest labor. 
I felt one contraction, got my epidural, went from a 4 to a 10 in 30 minutes. Pushed her out a few minutes later. How cool is that?

Someone said her legs were chunky,
 I just thought they were super cute.
She didn’t sleep so well that first night,
she was really hungry!!
She was great at nursing, which made those first few days easy. 

But ever since that rough first night, she has been my best sleeper yet.
You currently weigh over 30 pounds.
You are wearing size 3T.
Your shoe size is a size 7.
We think you’re going to be pretty tall!!

You love to do a forward roll and say, “momma watch!”

You love to jump, climb, run and be silly.
You love love love Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Whenever I get in the car you always say, 
“I go home and watch Mickey Mouse!”
You love your baby dolls and take care of them all day long.
 Sometimes I’ll catch you playing with one of Luke’s cars. But the majority of the time you are rocking your babies.
You want to do everything that Grace does.
You follow her around everywhere.

You love helping mommy with Luke and you always tell him “night night Lukey!” When he has to go to sleep.

Lately when you don’t want to take a nap you say,
“I’m awake!”
You always sleep with your blankie, two Minnies and Mickey Mouse.

We have a rough day if momma leaves your blankie at home.
You currently take gymnastics on Saturdays
and you love it.
You can climb out of your crib and do a flip into it. Scary. Yes.
You love the park, our dogs, riding in the wagon, cows, horses, and trips to the zoo.
You and movies don’t mix. You are too busy.

Olivia, we all love you so much.
You always bring a smile to mommy and daddy’s face.
You brought peace to our lives.
Daddy and mommy broke up before you were born but fell back in love in that hospital room when you were born.
We fell deeper in love the nights that daddy stayed with us in the hospital.
You are a gift from God.

I pray that you would come to know the Lord and that He would bless you abundantly.

Happy Birthday littles!
