Something Happy!

Here are some fun pictures that made me smile! ...of feeding the pigeons when the ducks were full, Livy after she put on her make-up (I pretended not to notice while she was getting in to it), and hanging out with friends at the park and zoo.

Goodbye, Dear Friend

Tonight our family had to say goodbye to our beloved dog, Bubbles. She came to us several years ago when she followed my dad and a bag of burgers to our home. Since then, she's provided us with endless love, laughter, and friendship. We will forever miss her , but she will always be alive in our hearts and memories. I love you, Bubbles.

Mom's Day Letter from Livy


I just needed to write you a letter to tell you how happy I am that you are my Momma. Below is the list of things I could think of:

I get to wake up to you every morning.

Whenever I need to randomly take off my diaper, you are there to put a clean one back on.

Whenever I need to take a bath, you give me one.

Whenever I needed to be born, you birthed me.

I learned how to pick my nose because of that horrible elephant nose thing you used to use. (Nose sucker)

I’ve had some pretty bad diapers, and Daddy never changes me.

You taught me my current favorite song – Where is Thumbkin?

You taught me A, B, C, D, etc…you know how it goes, but I get a little lost after D.

You taught me to say 2,3,4 after you say 1.

You take me to see horsies.

Whenever I am crying my head off for no reason, you pick me "down."

Whenever I need down, you let me down (as long as I’ve taken enough bites and have said “all done”, and have said “I luv you Mommy” and have said “I luv you Mommy much” and have said “thank you”).

You taught me not to hit others even though that’s the one of the first games Daddy taught me how to play.

You let Daddy know when he is tickling me too much (sometimes it hurts even though I’m still laughing).

You play ring around the rosies with me

You helped me a lot when I was going through the ‘teething’ part of my life.

You taught me that every book reads first “I luv my Daddy because”

You took me to the Circus

You read with me every night.

You brush my teeth every day.

You taught me to go poo-poo in my potty.

You obviously love Daddy so much, I mean come on Mommy you don’t even try to hide it!

You have helped me grow so much this last year.

You put me in the prettiest/cutest things so that everyone always tells me how pretty I am.

No matter how many times I take off my socks and shoes, you put them right back on.

You let Daddy and I go to the park by ourselves every once in a while so we can have one-on-one time.

You know, I’m getting sleeping and Dad just fell asleep, and I just realized that it’s five o’clock in the morning so I better get back to sleep because I usually get up at 6 am, so I was planning on going on to 9 million, but I think I’m too tirrrrr…zzz

I luv you much!

Wow, thank you Olivia for the sweet note. And thanks to her Daddy for dictating. I luh you much!
