Livvy Mae is Three Today!!

Today my baby turned three years old, it seems like yesterday I was bringing her home. While it is nice having her potty trained, able to feed herself and do many other things for herself, I miss holding a little baby and cherishing that time in her life a little more; especially when I didn't know she would be my last baby. I guess the next time she's sucking her thumb and obsessively playing with my hair until I want to scream I'll have to remember that I won't get that moment back;)

Livvy was lucky enough to have her birthday spread out for a few days. Last Saturday she got to have birthday cake with one of her cousins and open presents from Grammy and Grandpa. She got a Belle dress which she has been dreaming about for weeks. Earlier this week she got to open presents from Marme and Papaw. She got some Olivia by Ian Falconer stuff. If you have ever read the Olivia books you will already know my Olivia (and Claire for that matter) very well.

Livvy loves all things princess as do most girls her age so, I made her a 'Pon a Dream' cake { this is what she calls Sleeping Beauty.}.

I had a lot of fun doing it, although I was babysitting today and had 14 little hands to worry about instead of my normal 8 so I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked to on the details. I had a lot of fun fashioning a bodice and sleeves from molding Starburst candies together. The best part was that she loved it and couldn't stop opening the fridge to look at it.

Next it was pizza for dinner followed by cake and ice cream. Yummy, yummy, yummy! And then the presents.

What a darling Olivia is! Happy birthday sweet girl. :) The cake is adorable, Bethany. I remember my mother making me a cake similar when I was little. Mine was yellow though.

You're a good mommy. And yes, cherish the little moments as much as you can.
