Olivia was born on January 8, 2003 at 7:55 a.m.(Elivis's birthday!). She weighed 9 pounds 13 ounces and was 23 1/2 inches long. At birth she had white blond hair like a marine's cut and incredibly dark brown eyes. She barely cried and cuddled into me immeadiately. For the next year of her life she was the best baby I've ever personally known. She would rarely ever cry (when she was hungry she would grunt like a piggy, thus her nickname 'Big Pig') and she slept through the night from the second night home from the hospital on. She was never sick and didn't even have a cold until she was 15 months old! Amazing!

Olivia is now 5 years old and will be going into Kindergarten this fall. She is the sunshine in my day, sweet and cuddly, bright and creative. She tells the most imaginative stories and has the cutest diction. Jeremiah and I think she sounds like a Southern Belle because she's always drawling her vowels. She has curly red hair, giant dark brown eyes and the cutest smattering of freckles across her nose.

She plays by herself most of the time, and is very self sufficient. She picks up games easily and though she is very easily distracted, I feel that she will use her mind for great things someday. She tells me she wants to be an artist when she grows up everyday. All I can think of when she says that is a memory of the glorious pictures she drew all over herself in secret nearly every single day from ages 2-3....
