Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

From Sonya L.


One of my favorite memories with Livi was in the hospital. Jackson had given her some Barbi want-a-be's from the dollar store and they came with some less then appropriate outfits that you could change along with some accessories like shoes and scarves. Livi wanted to make new outfits for them but she had a little trouble getting the tiny shirts and pants on and off, so I was helping her. I would purposely put together outfits that didn't match and she was so funny about it. She just looked at me like I was crazy and then looked back down at what she was holding and shook her head as she said "no" with a sigh. But then when I held up something that did match she would say "mmm...yeah". Her facial expressions were priceless, so grown up! We went on and on like that for a half hour or so until it was time for stickers...which she was fully capable of handling herself and no longer needed my assistance.

Yeah! Another tribute to Sweet Livi....I was so excited to see another one. I love seeing the picture of Alivia next to the book shelf also. I remember another picture that was posted about a year ago on here of her looking at books by her bookshelf.

What a cute, cute story. I can just picture the grown-up frustration Livi's face like, "What am I going to do with this big person?":-) Thanks for sharing your favorite memory, Sonya. It shows Livi as being so serious and cute at the same time....:)

Hi! I haven't checked Livi's blog in a while, and tonight as I was researching math curriculum, I had a thought to just check in. I was SO glad to see the pix and new posts! I didn't know Livi (in person), but I really miss her. I still can't believe that she is not here, but with the Lord. Thank you for continuing the blog. I would like to share how Livi's life affected me. For probably a year? I prayed for her healing continually, especially through the night. And, somewhere in that year of prayer, God put in me a burning drive to see Him heal the sick, to see and walk in the miraculous, to see "Acts" played out in our everyday lives. I never had that before. Praying for you all still, Love in Jesus Christ, Janet S.

We have never met, but I am praying for you all as you endure this hardship. Your little Livi was a beautiful little girl, so loved by so many.
These tributes are amazing, showing you love for her, her love you both and so many others, your love for Christ.
Praying for you daily...

LOVE that picture!! What a precious face!
The story is so sweet. I love how she didn't get upset but let you know that wasn't the right outfit. Such innocence.
Thank you for the story!!
