Hello my sweet girl. Today you are 3, and mommy can hardly believe it. You are growing up so fast right before my eyes, and every day I look at you and just wish I could freeze you for just a little while. I can still remember when you were a tiny lady that I could hold in one arm, balancing you while your head rest in the palm of my hand. Oh, how the time has flown by. Now you’re sleeping in a twin-sized bed and I can sling you over my shoulder to carry you around. You’re talking to me in full sentences and making friends. You’re singing Disney songs with me and having tea parties. Playing dress up and reading Pinkalicious. I love the person you’re growing in to, and I know that everything you touch in life will flourish and be beautiful because you are nothing short of perfection in my eyes. Sure, you are insane at times and you scream at me. You throw your toys and you threaten to hit me with them. But just know how much mommy loves you, until my last day, and I would move mountains for you. I love you, my little (wait, BIG) Olive Emily. You will always be my princess, my boo boo.
And here comes the huge photo explosion of my little lady’s journey through life so far:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLIVE!
