Happy Birthday Olivia!

I can't believe how fast two years has gone by! My baby is already 2 years old. She loves Wall-E, (it was one of her first words -just from previews) so I made her a Wall-E birthday cake, and she received a stuffed Wall-E, and the movie. She also loves her new shopping cart, barbie, Littlest Pet, phone, magna-doodle, Dora and especially all the balloons. We invited a few of her friends to join us at this great place: Paradise Playground. They have all kinds of huge jumpy things, (what is the official name of those anyway?) and big slides. Olivia is not afraid of anything, and she had the time of her life. She even went down the HUGE slide all by herself. She is truly my little daredevil. She wanted to climb everything, and became very angry when she couldn't do it all by herself. She tried to play little hockey with Monique, but neither one of them could hit the puck. She climbed the rock wall, and even the grown-ups were able to get in on the action. At one point, she realized it was potty time, and instead of telling someone, she took her pants off inside a tunnel, and peed right there. Hurray for taking her pants off, but unfortunately she didn't move them out of the way and they were sopping wet. Luckily we had a rogue diaper in the van, and she was able to finish her play time, eat pizza and cake, and open her presents. We had a fantastic time, and I think she had a great birthday.

Olivia's New Look!

So, Monique decided play beauty parlor, and this is the result.
(I can't believe Olivia just sat there and let her do it!)

As I was taking these pictures, Monique smiled and asked, "Did I do a good job?"

This is her best mohawk, "Mr. T" impression she could do.

And a close up of the back. It was a sad, sad day!

The final result. I took her into the salon in a hat. When I pulled the hat off, every woman in the place had many words of sympathy for me. In the back, she still has many bald spots. I just try to make her look as much like a girl as possible. The only thing that saved her hair on top was that she already had a pony-tail in. Otherwise, I think she would be totally bald at this point! Kirk started calling her Oliver...but he had to stop. I don't want her to get a complex or anything. I told Monique if she ever did it again, I would give her the same haircut!
