Olivia turns 7!!

Gosh, I really cannot believe how fast 7 years have just flown by. It seems like just yesterday she was born. Jason and I had a new baby, he was still finishing up college, living with his parents in Cumberland, RI. I was away from home, away from my family. Life sure was chaotic and crazy and fun and exciting. I felt so many things during that time, from excitement to pain, from pure love to extreme hate. It sure was a very long year that first one, but in the end, we have loved and cherished every moment watching our oldest grow up. Olivia is truly a smart, bright, beautiful, loving, caring little girl. She has managed to teach herself to read, write and do math. She has skipped a grade in school all on her own. She always has a book with her. She still struggles with friendships and learning about respect and honor when it comes to family and her friendships. But I think, overtime she will learn this. Though she is very smart when it comes to learning, sometimes the hardest lessons are those we have to learn around us! Here are a few pictures from the past 7 years. Unfortunately, I don't have many from when she was born. We lost all the pictures from her first year due to a house fire when we lived in Pawtucket.
