Poppy's Birthday Girl

Today marks Olivia's 46 month birthday.  In two months, the sweet baby who made me a mother is going to be FOUR years old.

At this stage in her life, Olivia's imagination is out of this world.  It always has been -- she's always been great at playing creatively with her toys, but I feel like recently she's taken it to a whole new level!

One of Olivia's favorite things is a Sofia the First app on the iPad that allows her to pick different characters and accessories for a puppet show that she is able to narrate and record.  At first, her stories were more along the lines of, "There once was a girl and a mom and she had a chair and a fan..." but they have gotten a lot better and she's actually telling stories with the characters.  I love them...and I love being able to go back and listen to them all.

This afternoon, we celebrated her birthday by following Poppy while he played in a shootout.  She had so much fun gathering "flowers" and pinecones and making a pinecone salad.  And she was so proud of her Poppy who came in second place!

She sure is her Poppy's girl.

Happy 46 Months, Big Girl.
