OliviaA couple of weeks ago was Olivia’s first birthday. I still can’t really believe that she is one years old! This past year has just flown by. It is amazing really.

Olivia is still a happy little girl, like she always has. However she is such a cheeky, goofy little girl! Every time she is doing she isn’t supposed to she gives me this cheeky little look with the biggest smirk. She also makes funniest faces.. which I have yet to catch with the camera.

She still isn’t much of a cuddler and is constantly on the move. Right now she does like to be held a lot. And she is really working on mastering her temper tantrum skills. She will throw herself on the floor to her stomach, then scream. She also does the kicking and waving of the arms thing. I have a feeling she is going to be the worst as far as tantrums go. They are going to be dramatic.

I can’t tell you how tall or how much she weighs. We haven’t checked recently, but she goes in for her 1 year check up in a couple of weeks. I’m not really concerned about either.

She isn’t walking yet, however she has taken a few steps. I think she could walk, but I think she is still afraid too. It will come when she is ready.

For her birthday we had a small get together and took the kids to an indoor play place. All the kids had a really great time, and it was nice to not have to worry about feeding people and cleaning up afterwards.

If you follow my instragram you probably say the cake I made. I decided to be a bit ambitious and make homemade fondant, pound cake and orange flavored buttercream filling. Oh, and it was purple and pink inside. It didn’t come out perfect, but it tasted pretty good, and really it wasn’t all that bad:


We also had a tradition danish birthday cake:


We were only 15 people at the party, so there was lots left over.

Unfortunately Olivia was sleeping when we had cake. She did wake up a bit later, and I sat down with her and she tried a bit of cake, but she didn’t like it and I never got a picture of her eating the cake. I think I will do a smash cake shoot with her sometime in the next couple of weeks.

That’s really all there is to report on sweet Olivia.

It has been a long time since I updated on the other two as well. I will try and give an update with them here soon, as there is a lot to share about them.
