Livvie is FOUR today!
...and just look at how big and beautiful she is now!
Olivia is a (recovering) princess, no doubt about it. She loves all things girly--flowers, dresses, ribbons, jewelry, tea parties, twirling, sparkles, and everything fancy. Just recently she sweetly informed me,
"Mom, you should grow your hair longer.
It looks prettier and fancier that way."
Olivia's laughter is infectious; she's lively and sharp. She's a sucker for physical comedy, silly noises, and funny facial expressions.
Her most favorite and bestest activity of all time in the whole wide world forever and ever amen, is
reading.The child asks no fewer than one dozen times each day, "Mommy, will you read to me?"
(Shame on her mother for not reading to her more often.)
Olivia is mommy's girl, absolutely and for certain. A recent snippet of a conversation:
Me: "I'm going to the store. You're staying with Daddy."
Olivia: "Noooooooooo!!! I wanna go with you!"
Me: "I just have to pick up a few things. I won't be long."
Olivia: "But Mommy, I will miss you. I want to be with you!"
Me: "But you should spend some time with Daddy. Besides, you saw me all day!"
Olivia: "Mama, I haven't had enough of you. Please can I come?"
Our prayer for you, Olivia, is that you will grow to love and serve God with all your heart. We just know that God will accomplish much with your surrendered life! We love you so much.
