Today She Is One
It’s hard to believe my sweet little niece Olivia is a year old, today. As you can see she is a super happy baby. Olivia has brought loads of joy to our family and I am so happy for facetime. It’s so exciting to see her look closer into the phone and smile at me as well as clap her hands and play peek-a-boo. Although our first game of peek-a-boo was totally an accident on my part but she knew exactly what she was doing. I talk with my hands and when I put my hand on my head she thought I was wanting to play peek-a-boo and started playing and of course I instantly played until she lost interest.
Olivia’s first year has had many memorable moments of wondering why her parents sat her next to orange colored balls called pumpkins and dressed her up like a sweet little strawberry, she tugged at many a heart string with her sweet smile, she is already preparing for the techy world and seems quite excited about computers… although, this auntie is going to push art really hard, she can do both… she mastered the ability to eat solid foods and was pretty proud of it too and has enjoyed playing with dad’s phone and taking photos.
My birthday wish for Olivia is for every year to be filled with as much love and happiness as her first. That she always experiences beauty and kindness from others and that she knows I love her dearly. Oh and that I’m not going to give up on her wearing a headband. She’s a little Princess in training and Princesses wear headbands. Although, if she gave me that face below in person I would quickly fold like a cheap tent and take it off.
Happy 1st Birthday, Olivia! Auntie Lisa loves you.
