Yesterday was my birthday and it is funny to think how many wonderful things can fill a life in just one year. Last year, Todd bought us tickets to visit San Diego on my birthday because I was 3 months pregnant living in San Francisco and feeling homesick. My beautiful family and girlfriends threw me a birthday/oh my gosh Val's having a baby party! It was wonderful to be there and it was enjoyable because I remember finally being able to eat and not feel sick ALL day.
I often say thank you to Todd for making the pea with me. I know it sounds funny to say and he usually just laughs but I mean it! She would not be the same without him or without me and that is so special. This year I got a necklace from Tiffany's with an O for Olivia. It is simple and pretty and a huge statement but honestly the best birthday gift of all was having my silly and sweet baby girl here in the world with me.
And last but not least, here she is trying to escape like always. She keeps getting better at it. Baby-proofing is in full force around here.
