Here I am 5 years ago on my birthday; waiting for Olivia's arrival. She came 2 days later: July 16th, 2001
Never imagined I would have a c-section, but guess what I did! The anticipation of having her was the most exhilarating experience of my life. I loved the excitement of not knowing when she was going to come.
My little Olivia; Happy Birthday. How did you go from this to five in literally a blink of an eye?! I love you so much and I am so glad to be your mommy.
We welcome you to our blog. I am basically writing this and using this blog as a tool to communicate the unique moments and the "normal" everyday happenings of our family life. Already by the age of 3 1/2 the word family to Olivia is something that is tender to her heart and has made me validate even more the importance of family life. My hope is that this journal will be something in the years to come that our daughters can look back on and get a quick glimpse of what our life was like. Olivia is such a beautiful little person inside and out. We are humbled everyday by her innocence and thank God for giving us such a well spirited child. Her enthusiasm and zest for life is contagious. Ava came into our lives November of 2009; we can't imagine what our lives would of looked like without her in it. She is such a small and delicate little flower. We love her giggles and belly laughs. But most of all Brad and I love seeing Olivia and Ava as "sisters". I am glad that you can take part in this journey as well, as we try and capture their special moments on camera!
