Maile and Emmy have been talking this day up to Olivia for some time now, I wasn't sure she was getting what they were talking about. But, when the big day arrived there was no doubt about it, she definitely knew it was her speical day. She loved us singing happy birthday to her and was constantly pointing to the calendar with her picture on it, the birthday banner and then to herself to remind us that it was her birthday. Blowing the candles out on her cake and opening presents were probably the highlight of her day.
The girls love bowling on the wii, but have never been real bowling, so we decided to try it out. We all had a great time and just for the record I won with a score of 164, Aaron wasn't too far behind with a 150. My bowling lessons in 4th grade really payed off.
Anxiously awaiting. I think Emmy's balls sometimes took a good 2 minutes to reach the pins.
Livy loves the Baby Einstein world animals dvd and always dances to the song with the sea animals. So, whenever she sees a picture of a turtle she starts dancing. I had higher hopes for this turtle but gave up after a couple failures and this is what we ended up with.
It has been so much fun to see Olivia's personality really start to show this past year. She adds so much to our family and always makes us laugh. She can get so mad at her sisters, but then is always the first to give a hug or kiss. I can already tell she is going to be my little helper with the baby, cause she loves to be a mommy to Maile and Emmy making sure they get their clothes and shoes on and gets after them when they aren't doing what they are supposed to be doing. She loved the attention she got all day, I'm glad she recognized it was a special day for her.
