Olivia Lynn

Dear Olivia,

It was 2 years ago today, that we welcomed you into our family. You were wanted and prayed for for years before you came to be. Mommy and Daddy tried for almost 3 years to give Avery a brother or sister, so when we found out that you were here, we were so very thankful.

The night before you were born I didn't sleep a wink. We were in a hotel so we could get to the hospital bright and early for your birth. I was up all night tossing and turning wondering how the day was going to go.


Liv, your birthday was a wonderful experience. There was little to no pain, and it was the most joyous time. You were born with no complications, and we were able to take you right with us to our room. We stayed in the hospital for only 2 days, 'cause your mommy just wanted to be home and out of that small hospital room we had!

We brought you home, and then it hit....you were ours....our dream of having another child was now a reality. There were 2 car seats now, and 2 small little white beds, and 2 sizes of adorable girl clothing.


Liv, the last 2 years haven't been all roses. Mommy has had a harder time adapting to having a more, how should I put it, "busy" child. You are such a bundle of energy, all day long. You are so sweet, and you love to give out hugs and kisses all of the time. You keep us on our toes, that's for sure, but ya know what....we wouldn't have it any other way, because then you wouldn't be "Liv".


Right now you love horses, puppies, Dora, chocolate, pringles, shoes, bags, and the list goes on and on. You are such a special little girl, and we are so glad you are ours.

Happy 2nd birthday Olivia Lynn. We thank God for His gift of you...
