Wild Things

Olivia celebrated her 3rd birthday on November 22nd!  As a matter of fact, the birthday was not so much a 'day' but more like a series of days, with various celebrations, acknowledgements, songs, dinners, high fives, cake eating and (of course) leftover cake eating.  I hate to admit it but last year, things were so crazy that I did a 'combined' birthday for Olivia and Quinn. Never again!  This year, we are going all out.

Hers was a WTWTA (Where the Wild Things Are) party at a Gymboree where the kids got to make wild things masks, run around and act a bit like actual Wild Things (except not as scary).  Let me tell you, it was a great way to burn off some energy on a Sunday afternoon!

The yummy Wild Things cake was a bit hit!
Lucinda and Quinn helped Olivia blow out the candles:

I can't believe my little girl is already 3!  She is such a kind and caring girl.  She is so loving to her family, especially Quinn whom she hugs and kisses frequently and really anytime but especially when he is upset. She is always looking after her dolls when they have a dirty diaper or need some doctoring. She loves having fun and playing with other kids.  She really really enjoys it when her older cousin Natasha babysits or when she gets to play at Natasha's house.

I couldn't ask for a sweeter, more compassionate daughter, and I know this is only the beginning.  She will continue to grow in her love and understanding (but she's a really smart cookie already!).

Happy Birthday, my sweet Olivia! Mommy and Daddy love you soooooo muuucchhh.
