This past Saturday, we had a trial run for Olivia's first birthday party...

Liv's Godmother, Auntie Kinsey, threw her a Surprise Birthday Party because she will be working in Florida for the month of December, meaning she'll miss the real party.

It was a Princess/Cupcake theme and fortunately (after a previous wardrobe/diaper malfunction) Livi's outfit matched the theme PERFECTLY!

Livi had never opened a real present before...she was SO excited!

Livi especially loved her Princess Hat!

Kinsey gave her a Disney Princess tent and sleeping bag set, which packed up neatly into a great little backpack. Once Liv had her bag all packed, she grabbed the in flight announcement booklet and was ready to go be a Flight Attendant with Kinsey right away!

We set up the tent in Livi's play area this morning and she absolutely LOVES it! She's been crawling in and out, bringing in new toys and shrieking with delight since I finished putting it together!

Thank you again to Auntie Kinsey for going out of your way to make Livi's first birthday SO special. We love you SO much!

11 months

Well it's been a while. Seems that I start most blogs this way. Guess that's due to not having the time to write as often as I'd like. Chasing a very active 11 month old and working full time definitely keeps your life pretty full.

That's right, Livi is just about 11 months old which means in about a month we will be celebrating her first birthday. Crazy to think how much our life has changed in the last year.

Now on to the important stuff, Olivia! She has grown up quite a lot in the last little while.She talks a lot. From saying hi to every stranger we pass on the sidewalk to calling for "Mama" "Dada" or growling "Papa" for Grumpy.

She stands completely on her own with full confidence. She has still only taken a few steps at a time but walking is right around the corner.

Her newest trick is our favourite. Kissing on command. Very sweet.

Well better get back to work. Sorry for the short post.

She's a very good girl and we love her very much.

Trick or Treat!

Here are a few adorable photos from Livi's first Trick-or-Treating excursion:

She had a GREAT time and so did we! Here's looking forward to next year!
