TWO!!


Today is my sweet Livie's 2nd birthday. It's so hard to believe that it's been 2 years since I thought I wet my pants during family prayer!! She was the sweetest, most angelic baby up until around 18 months. Then I don't know what happened... But it's her birthday so we'll focus on the positive. Yes- that little girl can drive me IN.SANE but she has the funniest, spunkiest personality evah!! She teases. She makes jokes. She loves life!! I think she has been blessed with Sei's musical talents. I don't know what she'll do with it, but she loves singing and dancing. She loves music in general and demands to listen to her Signing Time cds when she goes to bed. When she's awake the blasts them and dances while she signs.

She's stinkin' smart. She does hundreds of signs, names animals orally and signs them, same with colors. She says about 1/2 of the ABCS and signs some of them correctly. She's just really inquisitive and quick to learn. She's awesome. She totally cracks me up and when I'm not needing a padded cell I am thoroughly entertained. She's afraid of my grandma's wheel chair. She's bossy- she was practically force feeding Taj last nite. She likes to yell "HI TRISTY!!" to Tristan during church and roll call as each of us take the sacrament. My parent's always know we are there because they hear her at the front of the church and we're sitting at the back. She has no volume control at all. :)
I just love her to death and I knew she would be part of our family before she was even conceived. Sei thought Taj was "the end" and was prepared to take steps to make sure. I told him I really felt there was a little girl that was meant for our family. And here she is!!!
We love you Livie!!! You are rad!!
Happy, happy birthday!!!
PS. It is also dear Millie's birthday!! This woman is amazing. I know this for a fact because I've taken a road trip with her!! YAY! Happy Bday Miss Millie!!
