Well, I officially no longer have a baby in the house. For Livi’s first year of life we referred to her as “the baby”. The second year, we decided to start using her name, or some variation of it…. I regret that decision. I wish I could still call her “the baby”. I can’t. She’s a girl now. She’s also renamed herself “fuffie”. It was over a month ago now and she’s still pretty firm on telling people that’s her name. You can imagine the looks I get when she corrects someone and says: “I’m not Olivia, I”m fuffie”.
She’s my favourite girl in the world. Full of life. Happiness. Determination. Spirit and Smiles. She’s in love with animals. All types, but particularly horses. She really eats nothing except for her favourites: Yogurt, fruit, PB&J; Pancakes; and I’m struggling to think of something else she’ll eat, but the only answer is cookies, and after Sunday …. apparently she likes Cake.
Livi fit right into our family and has brought nothing but love to it. She and Jack are best friends. I’m asked once a week if they’re twins. Livi has kept right up to Jack and talks non-stop. Cinderella is her current favourite along with Dora and Diego. We read a lot of books … this week’s favourite: The Paperbag Princess.
We celebrated this sweet girl of ours with a Princess Party. Grace, my best friend’s daughter, who by default is Livi’s best friend….. Happens to have a birthday 3 days before Livi. So … we decided to have a double birthday party this past Sunday.
For Grace who turned 3 on Thursday.
For Livi who turned 2 on Sunday.
A few of the images.

Grace and Julie.
Look… I was there too ;)) Thank you Julie!
The Girls going to check out their party:
The Pink and White Jelly Beans were the hit of the party.
My Sweet Girl. So excited.
Chocolate Princess Wands handmade by Grandma:
They each had a cake, if you can call it that… More of a piece of art ;) Also handmade by my mom.
What’s a Princess Party without a real Princess?! Cinderella came for a visit.
It was a little alarming seeing my sweet girl with the makeup on. Blue apparently is not her eye colour.
Cinderella stayed to help the kiddos sing Happy Birthday to the girls.
It’s apparently quite exhausting being a princess.
