Two years?  TWO YEARS?  Where did the time go?!  Well, yes, most of that two years was spent crawling, crying, drinking bottles, and looking cute, but time seems to fly by in tiny baby years.  One day I was wondering when we would ever be able to stop buying cases of formula, and the next?  Eating a slice of pizza at her birthday party!  An actual slice of pizza, because only babies need their food cut up into tiny pieces, thankyouverymuch.  So here we are, my #1 Homegirl, Olivia Marie.  I love you more than there are words in the dictionary.  I love you more than a 12 hour long night of uninterrupted sleep.  I love you more now than I thought my heart could hold.


So before Momma gets all weepy in her pumpkin spice coffee, let’s talk a little bit about you for a minute, shall we?  A year in review, perhaps?


Penguins-  You call penguins “dee-wies”.  We have no clue why.  But, Penguins=Dewies.  And you love them.  Penguin books, Penguin stuffed animals (SEVERAL), and penguin toys.  And yes, your birthday cake? A PENGUIN.


Favorite Movie- Penguins of Madagascar.  This movie is on our TV at least 3 times a week, and always on Saturday mornings.  ALWAYS.

Favorite Snack- Go Go Squeeze Applesauce.  You love these squeeze fruits!! It’s a good thing we have a membership at Sam’s Club, girlfriend, because convenience food is not cheap!

Favorite Toy- Anything stuffed.  Stuffed animals- every shape and kind imaginable, and any animal- you have rabbits, Pluto, Nemo, Minnie, beanie baby boos, and, obvs, the aforementioned Penguins! You love giving your stuffed animals rides in your toy stroller, you love putting your animals to bed and tucking them in with blankets.

Favorite Meal- Macaroni & Cheese.  Oh I know, how can you NOT love mac & cheese?! I think if given the choice, you’d have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  And on weekends, we are more than happy to oblige, girlfriend.

Favorite Activity- DANCING to any sort of music- commercials, the radio, the introduction to Miles from Tomorrowland (a big favorite), you do your wiggle and the world stops.  Little do you know you probably got those kick butt moves from your momma.

Favorite Person- Your adoring brother, Jake.  You love him more than anyone in the world.  You follow him wherever he goes, you do whatever he does, and he absolutely LOVES you right back.  You two were made for each other!
