Here she is, on the right, with her little friend Kylie, at Olivia's Chuck E. Cheese birthday party. They hugged and held each other practically the whole day and when they whispered secrets, their noses pressed right up against the other's cheek. Isn't pre-inhibition friendship the sweetest thing on earth?
Building on the sweet theme, a tray of girly-pink cupcakes.
Oh. My. God. SPARKLY DRESS UP SHOES! CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE IT?????
Back at home, Olivia was kind enough to share the spotlight with her uncle Chris and her sister, Rebecca.
For a brief moment, anyway.
Since Olivia's a wee bit of a ham, it was no trouble talking her into a fashion show featuring the skirts I'd made her for her birthday. First, the girly-pink flowery and hearty one, accompanied by her current favorite "double peace sign" pose.
Then, the one that started as the fabric above. Don't know if you can see it, but it's "Olivia" fabric designed by children's book author Ian Falconer, who pens and illustrates the gorgeous Olivia the pig series.
And wound up as this skirt. Clearly, it works for the model.
