Back when sharing was for the birds & you had just a little passion for playing dress up.

olivia bliss. august 2.

you've always been our stargazing dreamer, Olivia.

you were just two years old when you decided you wanted to be Jane Banks from the Mary Poppins movie.

"Mary Poppins taught us the most wonderful word!"

in the words of Jane and Michael Banks
you're supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. oxoxo.

olivia bliss. august 1.

thirteen augusts ago i only dreamed of the happiness you'd bring to our world, olivia. as your milestone birthday nears i thought i'd try to post a thought or memory a day about you, beautiful bliss. you are my joy. and you can see by this silly poem below your parents have never been entirely appropriate. lucky you...

olive is quite small right now
fribble is so too
here's a mother's day poem from all of us to you
you take care of this crazy house
although it is quite stressful
we know it can't be easy moving
since now you're quite a dressful
but you do it all with grace
and pull it off with ease
your only request you ask of us
is "another milkshake, please!"
so we toast you on this mother's day
with belly's full of cheer
but maybe we should wait a few more months
when you can have a beer

~mother's day poem, 2000 (accompanied by a pacifier charm for my charm bracelet eric gave me years before during our engagement)
