This week's favorite photos

 Just look at that hair! As unruly as it is, I will be so sad when she finally has to have her first haircut and its no longer the wild, unpredictable (sometimes curly, sometimes not), mess that we've come to love and adore.

 Below: Those are Liv's 'mad eyes'. We've legally changed her name to "Mad Eye Moody" (jokes).

I'm so thankful for this little angel. Although I vent about how hard it is to be in school (an all time consuming one) and be a mother, I would be so lost without her.
She is the reason I continue. She is the reason I am pushing myself so hard right now, and the only reason I drag myself to school in the morning. She is the reason I'm not overly stressed about my next set of Boards. She has brought so much peace and JOY to our home.
I know I pretty much write the same thing all the time, but I think its important one day when she reads this, that she KNOWS how much I needed her to be here right this very second. She is my life! I love her more than words could ever explain.

These are darling! And I love what you said. It's so true...our babies keep us going through the tough times and make it so worth it!

I neveeer want you to cut her hair. It just keeps getting cuter and cuter. The joy of little girls is that you can let their hair grow for a lot longer before ever needing to cut it!!

I love all of my children, but I always say about Will, "he makes me crazy but keeps me sane." Will plays a really special and different role in our family. I truly believe that he was sent here to help me through a very difficult time in our family's life. He is such a comic relief in the family, a total breath of fresh air. So I feel you on this.

Thank you all for your comments, I love reading them! And Kristi, you totally said it better than I did. That is Olivia 100%! Maybe we should get Will and her to meet sometime ;) On second thought, maybe not. They would probably just run absolutely wild!

I LOVE O's hair!! She is so cute with her being left to it's own way! I want to experience her growing personality first hand! We love, love, love her! Her face makes me smile - weather it's smiling, mad eyes, laughting, screaming - it doesn't matter, she just makes me smile!
lots of love, grammy
