Olivia is six!!

Our sweet girl is six years old! She is growing up so fast--reading independently, full of confidence for school tasks, and running, climbing, biking, and riding her scooter fearlessly. It amazes (and scares) me that she has this whole little life at school we don't know about! She is a little love bug, requesting and getting at least eight hugs a day! She thrives on attention, but often plays independently with her toys/books/writing. She likes for us to read to her a lot--some chapter books, some non-fiction animal books, and still some picture books. She is a great big sister, but sometimes a sassy one. She is growing physically so much! She weighs 50 lbs already and is 47.75 inches tall! She is a great eater--she eats more fruit and veggies than I do, and tomatoes are one of her favorite foods. She is signed up for summer swim team at the pool on our neighborhood, but isn't in any other organized sports right now. She finishes Kindergarten June 3.

Here are some recent photos:

She had a super fun Derby-themed birthday party on Saturday! We made hats and horse necklaces, watched the Derby on TouTube, and had a dance party!
