Now I'm Two.

Olive My Love is now two.  She has stopped referring to herself as "the baby".  From now on, she's "big girl Olive".  She's two, she knows it, and she's so proud that she beams.  It's funny... In a way, she seems so much older than a girl who just turned two.  Her comprehension and vocabulary is through the roof.  She's a little girl in the making, and she knows what she wants.

For this birthday party, she was very clear.  She wanted Woody from Toy Story.  Not Buzz.  "Just Woody".  She did decide to later include Jessie into the mix, but still no Buzz!  So, armed with a Woody cake and some great party cowboy/girl hats (thanks, Mom!), she had herself an awesome little party!

So much has happened to us since Olive was born that I cannot say, "I can't believe my baby is two".  We have moved twice since she was born, we worked on two different renovation projects, we tore down the shack on our new property and began paving the way towards cutting in a driveway for our future home, we bought a sawmill and learned to cut lumber, we started a hybrid school for Asa and Addison to have a great education experience.... I can believe that she is two.  Not only has it seemed like a big two years, but she is just such a big girl.  Independent, funny, feisty, cuddly, and smart as can be.   I love you, Olive Amelia.  We all do.  And, we would have been so incomplete had you not come in and rounded off our life.

Happy Birthday, Big Girl.
