Olivia is one.
My serious, mysterious baby has grown into a giggly, happy little girl.
Don't let the smile fool you. She let us know early on that she was a tough cookie.
And she is definitely still the boss.
Jackson didn't know what to make of this new little creature at first.
Now he is pretty thrilled with her, especially when she shares cake with him.
Baby girl, I am so excited to watch you becoming this awesome little person. We love you more every day. Although we love to see every step of your development, there are some things about you that I never want to change.
Your strong opinions
Your infectious smile and laugh
Your love of learning
Your bravery in trying new things
Your reflective, thoughtful side
And most of all, your sweet, loving nature that makes you so lovable and amazing
Happy birthday Miss O!
The cake is Rene's Tomato Soup Cake with Vanilla Frosting from La Dolce Vegan. Tomato soup sounds bizarre in a cake, but you don't taste it. It just tastes like a spice cake. I used to really dig this cake, but this time it was too sweet for my taste. I mean I know cake is supposed to be sweet, but it was like hurting my teeth. It's been a couple years since I made it last. So I don't know if I did something different, or maybe my taste buds have changed. The important thing is that the kids loved it. It was Olivia's first taste of cake and I think she's hooked now!
