when i was pregnant with olivia i was obsessed with oranges. i ate 2 or 3 a day.
and on this day 21 years ago i drove myself to the hospital already 6 centimeters dilated!
(her dad had started a new job on the same day in boston, an hour away)
when she was born she had thick black curly hair and ice blue eyes.
her little brother eli had trouble saying her name
when he was a toddler and called her ya ya.
it's been her nickname ever since.
happy birthday, my girl.
i love you. so much.
