My Beautiful Birthday Girl

Oh Olivia,

You are my feisty, brilliant, creative, spirited little girl.  I love you more than I could ever express.  You bring so much joy to my life and you make me work so hard at being the right kind of mother to you.  You love to learn, you love stories, you love imaginative play and I want to foster that love for as long as I can.  You also love doing things your way and on your terms and I want to do everything I can to channel that spirit into good.  I love you so much -- you and your wild hair, your strong will and your incredible beauty.  Let's make four the best year yet.

*Maybe Princess Kate is having a boy and we will send Olivia to college in the UK. Not happening because that looks like UK as in University of Kentucky and not a chance...

If you've got 12 minutes to spare, enjoy a picture slideshow of Olivia's 4th year.

Those are some beautiful precious moments captured on film. She is indeed very special and so is her mama. Everytime I watch this it brings tears to my eyes. Love you all so much!

Oh Olivia, I hope you always know how much you are loved. I have been blessed by every day of your 4 incredible years. You have brought me such joy and happiness. I have always said I was born to be a grandmother and in this case I am so proud to be called your Nana. I love you better than a cat loves cream.

Side note to your Momma: I love you for the love you show to your daughter(s). I must have done something right because you are one terrific mother.

Olivia, I can't wait to see what year 4 brings.

xoxo Nana
