Is it just me or do kids age exponentially?  I mean, 7 seems years older than 6, not just 365 days.

6 year old Olivia

So much changes in a year. 

7 year old Olivia

So much stays the same. 

She's still so dramatic, which is good and bad.  She loves to find a corner to play in with a few stuffed animals and you can overhear the tragic and fantastic tales she spins.  But she doesn't even remember her imaginary Grandmother.  Man, I miss those stories.  Grandmudder was awesome.  She is still a little couch potato, although her taste in television has evolved from Maggie and the Ferocious Beast to iCarly. She's interested in music more.  Still sharp as a tack. 

It's nearly impossible to get a picture of her looking like a little girl.  Now she looks like a miniature teenager. 


She loves her doll.  She named her Lilly Blain.  She was pretty sure I had made her a doll (since she did ask for one) and was planning the name on our ride home.  Everything is named Lilly around here.  And everyone's middle name is Blain to them (actually, only Zoe's middle name is Blain, but they can't pronounce Izzy's middle name so they have replaced it... which led to them just assuming it's everyone's middle name).

I finished the legwarmers, but she won't get them until Sunday.  I'll take pictures of them then.  Legwarmers just are better modeled. 

I can't believe my first born is 7.  Such a big number. 

Olivia Grace, Happy Birthday!  It's going to be a great year, I know it.



  1. Happy Birthday Olivia! It is amazing how they change in only a year's time. I'm glad she loved the doll, and I'm sure she'll love the leg warmers too! Only 4 more months and my oldest will be two, but then the new one will be here the next month. It goes by too fast!

  2. They do change quickly. Olivia is gorgeous! Lilly Blain is a perfect name. I always said if I had a fourth little girl I would name her Lillian. Can't wait to see the legwarmers. I'm a bit overly excited about it. Lol... Happy Sunday Jennifer. :)
