the last day of two

Friends, my heart is a wee little bit sad today. My tiny tornado will be three years old at 9:00 tonight. (Well, 9:-- something as she is my 3rd child and I can't quite remember the exact time).


She's snuggly, cuddly... she makes up songs for me with "mom.... you're my best friend!" and "I love you soooo much!" as the majority of the lyrics. She compliments me on my jeans and tells me I'm beautiful.


She's outgoing, friendly, fearless (fearless as in nearly tackled the 60 year old Islands of Adventure employee when he told her she was too short to go on the Jurassic Park water ride) and delightfully independent.


Oh. And I almost forgot. Still wild.


Can't wait to see what three will bring sweet baby!! <3
Happy Birthday Livia!!! :-)

Is she seriously only turning three? I saw the photos on the tumblr page and thought, "Wow, she's getting big! She must be four or five now!"

TT is getting so big. Tell her Happy Birthday for me. I love how the photo starts off calm and they get wilder as they go. Classic Tornado. And don't worry... she will still be that sweet for a while yet.

Liz said...

Happy Birthday Livia!!!!! What great captures of her and her personality.

Side note.. sorry I have not commented.. for some reason I was not able to, but now I just put comments in a new window and it seems to let me.

Have a great weekend.

Natalie said...

Sweet pics of your sweet girl, Karli. I really love the b/w one - it conveys just the right sentiment for what I imagine you to be feeling. Three is an awesome age - one of my favorites.
Enjoy the wonders of three & happy birthday, TT!

Marvett Smith said...

Oh my. I love these images of her. So sweet, and I feel for you. I hate that they grow up! Happy Birthday to your sweet girl!

Lizzy said...

Happy Birthday to the tiny tornado! These pictures are beautiful (as always).

Angela said...

Happy Birthday to Livia!! I'm sure 3 will be as wonderful as 2! And probably just as wild :-)

Mira Crisp said...

Happy Birthday, Livia! :) She is so adorable and I just love all these photos. Awesome boots!

Gina @ Gigi Marie Photography said...

Oh my- really?? She can't be 3 already. Seems like I just "met" you & she was still so little. Hope it's a wonderful birthday celebration for her. I absolutely ADORE that first shot Karli- it's so beautiful & really captures her spirit!

Adeena P said...

*sniff sniff* Three already?? She's too big.

Love the shots of her kicking up her heels. ♥

Happy third Birthday, Livia! :)

The Shades of Pink said...

How did I just realize that she and my "not so tiny tornado" nearly share a birthday (you know...only 12 years apart?) Never mind, if you go back in your archives I probably said the same thing last year. Geesh.

Casey Martinez said...

oh how I loved these pictures of her kicking up her heels and the sweet things you said about her. I'm sorry that the twos are gone and that three has come. I know exactly what you mean by the sadness the heart feels as they get bigger WAY too fast. She is such a beautiful little girl friend! SO PRETTY!

Skye said...

Happy 3 months to the TT! Wow! So sweet how she idolizes you! Awww! Mine turns 2 in less than 2 months- I can't believe it! Time flies indeed

Lori Allberry said...

Wow Karli, these pics truly speak volumes! They show Livia's spirit! They are amazing!!!! Truly amazing! My heart is heavy for you! I can feel your emotion through the pictures and words!!!! What a special little girl she is. And I can't wait for you to experience all a daughter brings to your
Life as she grows older! She will be your best friend for life!!!! (I am also so happy to hear there is another mother out there who can not remember the exact times their children were born!!! ;)
XOXOXO

These are so sweet, Karli. She is adorable and I love these images of her.

I've been meaning to write and thank you so much for your kind words and prayers about losing our Rusty. I appreciated them so much. I've been a little quiet from the blog world lately, but I just wanted to let you know how much it meant to me. xo

Ashley Sisk said...

I can't believe I missed TT's birthday - geez...horrible friend. Happy Birthday little bit!

Michelle Reed said...

HAPPY (late) BIRTHDAY, TT!!!!! I know you're gonna make three even better than two!!! :)

And you tell your mama to keep on taking these stinking amazing and fun pics of you! They capture you perfectly!!! And I love that she's recording all the super sweet and adorable things you say and do! (although, I don't think "tackling" is adorable... we'll work on that!)

xoxo
